Our little family of 5 had an AMAZING white water rafting trip with Downstream Adventures!! Our youngest daughter, 6 yo, was quite nervous and super excited at the same time. Mark, our guide, did a fantastic job making everything fun and safe. All of us had the best time and highly recommend Downstream Adventures for white water rafting. They are a smaller operation with excellent customer service and clean, new equipment, literally everything was PERFECT!!

What an amazing experience. Mark our guide made us feel at ease and led our trip fantastically. Clear Creek was full of rapids which made our trip super fun for our teenagers. I highly recommend Downstream Adventures for your next fun adventure!

Our guide was great and the trip was one of the most fun beginner trips we'd been on. It was no float trip, we worked a little bit, got turned around a couple of times and enjoyed some great scenery. Thanks for good time and we would definitely recommend them.

My husband and I with our 17 yo son went on an intermediate rafting adventure. My husband chose the best adventure company: Downstream Adventures Rafting. Their guides have years of experience and are indeed outdoor adventure seekers. Before the ride, we had a quick lesson about rafting in the rapids, what to do and what not to do, and how to do what (such as if you fall off of the raft). Everything important that you need to know was clearly explained in a plain manner that even someone like me, who haven’t gone rafting before, would clearly understand. They provided wetsuits, helmets, life jackets, water shoes, and wet jackets. They were clean and they didn’t smell. After the quick lecture, we all suited up and hopped into the bus. Note: there are no lockers for your dry clothes and shoes, they only have a wall where you hang your car keys; but that didn’t bother me because there was parking outside the shop. When e reached the starting point, we were grouped into 3 groups with 5 people/ group. My family rode with a father and his son who’s just a year younger than my son; and these 2 kids chose Chaz as out guide and they chose well. Chaz is an awesome guide. He has a lot of trivia’s about the creek and the rapids, he put me at ease with his confidence and I apparently just trusted him. Before we went into the water, Chaz when through the things we learned at the previous class and he taught us how to sit on the raft, the placement of our feet, how to paddle, and the commands. Chaz, and all the other guides at Downstream Adventures Rafting are professional and experienced and they know their stuff. They have passion, they’re thorough, they have good equipment, and that’s what impressed me, an anxious beginner who doesn’t know how to swim; and guess what? I made it! I’d do it again with them. If you want a great rafting experience, look up Downstream Adventures Rafting; and if you want to get weird, choose Chaz as your guide. 5 stars hands down! Oh, and they take amazing photos of your experience too! Love it!

Went on a family rafting trip and Downstream did not disappoint. Very informative safety session and raft etiquette/preparedness for rafters of all levels. Sam was our tour guide and he was super helpful! Would definitely come back.

Tippy was a great guide and very knowledgeable about Clear Creek and the history of the area. The beginner's trip is just that, designed for beginners. We had our 8,10 and 12 year old boys with us. They were trepid at first but now cannot wait to go again. I would highly recommend if you have never gone before or are with younger kids. My wife and I have gone on more challenging waters but this was a perfect way to introduce the kids to white water rafting.

We were fortunate to see all kinds of wildlife including Big Horn Sheep, all kinds of birds (hummingbird, King Fisher, gold Finch I think, and others). I was a little hesitant being so close to I-70 but it was not an issue or much of an impediment to the views.

Again, we had an awesome trip and can't wait to get back!

So glad we chose Downstream Adventures. They were top notch and even accommodated a request to switch days due to weather. Russell was an awesome guide , very informative and personable. Hope to do another trip with them...

I have to say I had one great day today. Scott was an awesome guide. This was my first time white water rafting. Great crew, we did a private tour, and it was tons of fun. Highly recommend. And I will be back for sure.

These guys were great. Our guide, Casey, did an awesome job. We had fun and felt like we were in good hands. The whole family enjoyed the beginner trip, kids, parents, and grandparents. We are ready for the intermediate rafting trip next visit. Can't wait to go back.
