Had a guide named Maddie. It was just my husband and myself as the other backed out because it was a little cooler that day. But blue sky had everything we could have needed. Wet suits (we already had our own but they were available) dry suits (everyone gets these). Out on the water with the paddling and the fun the cool temp never bothered us one bit. Plus of course your layered! Truly a once in a lifetime experience with amazing people who love what they do and love to share their knowledge and experience with you.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful rafting trip on the Colorado. Unfortunately, we were unable to go rafting in Glenwood Canyon due to the wildfire. That being said, Blue Sky Adventures made the best of the situation and they were very forthcoming with the fact that the rapids would be tame based on the water levels. It was still an enjoyable trip with beautiful scenery. Our guide, Wyatt, was fantastic! He was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We appreciated the information that he shared about the wildlife, river, and area. We would definitely choose Blue Sky Adventures again!

This was our second raft trip for our vacation and this one did not dissappoint. The guides were super friendly and the river was beautiful! There was a good mix of rapids and calm waters. Lots of opportunities to take pictures and even get out and swim during calm portions. We were very pleased with the overall experience.
