We took the Bighorn sheep canon rafting trip and enjoyed every minute of it! It was a "good time" no other way to put it! So if your looking for a good time please visit Raft Masters. Our guide Z was a very knowledgable young lady, friendly and accommodating! We would definitely do it again!

They are amazing!! Collin was our guide and Sarah jumped in with our group. They were knowledgable and super friendly. The river was jet black due to fires upstream which made the event even more unique. I will be back in June to do an overnight trip!!!!!

I was a very nervous rafter, and when hearing we were going to go through class 4 rapids almost backed out. We took the Royal Gorge trip with spectacular scenery. We are both senior citizens and not as agile as others on the boat, but it didn't matter. Had a GREAT time, and our guide Tim made me feel totally... More

Picked this over the Royal Gorge due to an 11 year old on board. Trip was beautiful canyon scenery (but no Big Horn sheep today). Rapids were pretty tame as no one was scared and no possibility of being tossed from raft. Scariest part was in bus as guide gave "worse case scenarios" but this was mostly for the Royal... More

All we had to do was show up. the staff handled everything all we had to do was relax and enjoy the trip. Book your trip with them today. Z was our guide and she handled the boat and still made sure that we all had a great time.

I was planning a special dad and son visit to Colorado with my six year old. I wanted to ride trains, do zip lines, and do a jeep tour. I called to schedule a jeep tour and Will suggested I combine it with whitewater rafting. I had not thought of this option given that my son is six and weighs... More
