I went on the 2pm rafting trip on Clear Creek. Upon arrival I was told I can expect a wild ride and it certainly was! II was initially getting nervous about going on this trip but was soon put at ease with Worth at the helm. He was a wonderful guide that knew the river well, he made me feel... More

Rob, So glad you got to experience the wild ride and with Worth, no doubt. Worth has been with us for a long time and definitely has the skills to put you at ease when the creek is high. Thanks for the kudos to the staff from the photographer to the front line. I will make it a point to... More

We had an awesome experience. My husband and I brought our 8 year old boy and 13 year old girl on this trip. We felt safe and our guide Thomas was awesome! It was the kids first time white water rafting! He was very informative and kept us up on what we were going to face on the creek! He... More

Nichole, We are so glad that you chose Raft Masters and that you took the time to right a review. We can't wait until your son is a little older so we can get him out on the intermediate. Keep in mind that we have another family trip out of our Canon City office called the Bighorn Sheep Canyon which... More

This was a beautiful morning to go rafting on Clear Creek with guide Worth. The water was cold but our free to use wetsuits, water proof jacket, and booties kept us warm. Worth was a very knowledgeable guide and made the trip fun. Raft Masters offer rafting trips for every level including first-timers beginning at age 14 on easy waters... More

Thank you Dianne for the review. There is no doubt that Worth is top notch and the free wetsuits, jackets, and booties let you enjoy the thrill without the chill. Hope to see you again real soon. Thanks for sharing your experience. More

I was a class sponsor for our school's Senior class. We experienced our first Colorado Blizzard in the middle of April! Raft Masters had to cancel our rafting trip because of cold temperatures. They could have just refunded our money but Raft Masters booked our group of 23 with a Jeep Tour and saved the day! Raft Masters went above... More

I drove 10 hours to go on a white water rafting trip to celebrate my 30th birthday with my twin sister. We booked and paid for our reservations for Raft Masters well over a month in advance, got our confirmation number and headed to Idaho Springs. When we arrived, the doors were locked. We called the customer service line and... More

Our whole family of seven went rafting and had lots of fun! The river was beautiful and the guides were great. They explained the safety stuff very well so we felt prepared for every circumstance. But they did such a good job on the river that we were totally safe and had a great time! Would recommend it for sure... More

Even though we had never been rafting before we decided on the level 3 intermediate at Clear Creek. It can get a little scary but our guide Whitey was great and made me feel safe, especially after we flipped our raft in some rough water. He was very funny but you could tell he was serious about keeping us safe... More

Aaron and I road tripped out to Canon City for our honeymoon. We went white water rafting twice and would have done it on a daily basis if possible. Our guide Alan was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He made our trip down the river unforgettable. We would love to make this a yearly trip. Thank you Alan!!

We were limited to the "beginner" trip down Clear Creek b/c the youngest is 11 years old. I wasn't too excited about floating down a creek, but it turned out to be way more fun and "rapid" than expected. Everything was as advertised with Raft Masters; there were no hidden fees, the wet suit/booties are included, the trip left on... More
