Fun, friendly, family oriented whitewater rafting trips. Our guides have a minimum of five years of guiding experience and although you are on vacation "safety doesn't take a vacation". You meet us at our convenient location on river, the same location since 1982! We are the longest family owned and operated whitewater rafting company in Southwest Colorado. Trips depart throughout the day and are a perfect way to cool down after a hot hike in Mesa Verde or a thrilling splash after enjoying a walk through historic downtown Durango. You may have seen town from riding on the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad train now get a totally different perspective. Parking is free and secure and RV parking is available. When the snow is gone and the water level in the river drops we pull out specially designed river tubes, tubing is a local favorite.Come to have fun and dress to get wet!

My husband and I went on a 2 hour rafting trip with our son (6 years old). We have never been before and it was perfect for our family. The length was just right for our son. Any longer and it may have been an...More

Our family had never rafted before and we selected Flexible Flyers after evaluating several different rafting operations in Durango. Flexible Flyers was one of the most reasonably priced and we had a great experience. We made reservations online a month in advance and those were...More
