Did the full day Big Horn Canyon and Royal Gorge trip- slow warm up in the morning to get you ready for class 3 & 4 Rapids in the afternoon. Our guide Colin was awesome,... More

Take an epic river raft journey that provides 10 miles of thrills in the Royal Gorge, or take the more meek Bighorn Sheep Canyon journey for family fun. Beginners welcome. No experience required. It is a must on the list of to-do's for SW Colorado. Highly recommend. Buy the photos. You won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

This is our second trip with Raft Masters. The reservation process is very well organized and easy to use. The pre-trip safety briefing by Dee was excellent and made us feel safe and secure. Even though I am hearing impaired, I was able to hear and understand everything she said. Monica was a great raft guide, and we enjoyed taking... More

We did a half day in Bighorn Sheep Canyon. We have a 5, o, and 10 year old in the group and the trip was perfect for them. Not scary but enough excitement to keep them interested. Noah was our guide and was terrific.

This was our first time with RM and it did not disappoint. We had a great time on the Big Horn Canyon trip. The guides were all great and our guide especially (Emma) was really laid back and yet made the trip really fun. They all love what they do and it shows. We had a great experience and would... More

We were looking for Class III and IV rapids and we got the thrill ride of our lives. To start our trip our guide fell out of the boat. We had to rescue her!! Our boat got lodged on rocks during one of the rapids and we had to be rescued by throwing rope out to us and then being... More

This was our third trip with Raft Masters and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a rafting company. I suggest you call ahead and talk to them ahead of time to find out the water flow and what trips are available.

We loved Raft Masters!! Aubrey answered all my questions when I booked our reservation. (I was nervous and she put my fears to rest! ) :) Aaron was our guide and he was amazing! No one fell out of the raft and we didn't tip over! He was a great teacher and explained everything very well. He was also very... More
