About Flexible Flyers Rafting
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!

This past week, we were passing through Durango on our Colorado road trip. I wanted to do a train ride and The Hubby insisted we do a rafting trip. Glad I listened to him. We had so much fun on our rafting trip with Flexible Flyers Rafting. I researched ALL the different rafting companies for several days and decided on this company after finding an online coupon code that made them very affordable for our family of 6. Much more affordable than any of the other rafting companies. And much cheaper than the train. Our guide was very knowledgable in telling us about the area and very experienced. We had a great time and would definitly book another rafting trip with Flexible Flyers Rafting if we're ever in the area again.

Thank you for your review. We are so happy you had a great time and it is good to do your research on all the different companies in town. We strive to be the best and have been for 37 years now. It is always fun to take people down who are a bit nervous because they generally have the best time. We like to keep our trips affordable so families can all have fun. We know vacation can be so expensive so we keep our prices down so everyone can have fun and make families memories. Thank you again and we can't wait to see you in the future.

My husband and daughter had the best time. We would highly recommend them. We shopped around and found this was the best price for the amount of time we wanted. Wish we lived closer so we could come again with the rest of our family!

Tyler the guide was well trained and made the trip fun. We hit some big water in Durango and navigated it well with Tyler's help. The pick up point was easy to find in town and they provided a good break and snacks half way through the trip. We would definitely float with Flexible Flyers again!
