Great family activity! Our group of 7 enjoyed this amazing experience down the Colorado River. This was much more than just a rafting trip. We stopped at many sites along the way, including cliff jumping, hot springs, historical site and dinosaur prints. We had lunch along the river and it was better than expected with sub sandwiches from a local shop, along with homemade potato salad and chips. Our guide, Scott, was terrific and kept us entertained with his humor and interesting facts. But the highlight had to be Eddy, the River Dog, although sadly it may have been his last trip due to his age. We really enjoyed our day on the river and highly recommend Paddle Colorado.

This was my 3rd time whitewater rafting, but was my favorite trip to date! This trip was so much more than just whitewater rafting. There were many opportunities to get out of the raft and explore historical sites along the way, along with cliff jumping, warming up in the natural hot springs, and water fights with other rafts on the river. This trip was a much more personable experience (2 hours on the river with entertaining guides) rather than a quick trip down the river and then the guides are on to their next trip. Our guides, Caleb and Scott, were awesome, along with their pups, Eddy and Reilly!! The dogs on the raft was just icing on the cake! I highly recommend and hope to get back for another trip! Thanks guys!!

Great outfit! We took a 1/2 day trip with Chris as our guide. He, Scott, and our driver, Michael were awesome! Paddle Colorado was very attentive to safety (both COVID and rafting) and fun! Kids had fun diving! Recommended!

Scott was a wonderful guide and went the extra mile to create a memorable experience. Was my 6yo first rafting experience. Scott stopped at cliff and helped my son scale it for a 1st time cliff jumping experience that he will never forget. Add the water guns and the opportunity to paddle along with the group raft in a 2 person raft made for great fun had by all. 1/2 day trip was very gentle ride. Would’ve enjoyed a few more rapids.
