Had a great trip with the boys and our guide Aaron on Clear Creek. The staff was very knowledgeable and taught us everything that we needed to know for our day on the water. Would recommend to anyone traveling in the area. Cheers.

We had such an amazing time white water rafting with Downstream Adventures. Kevin was an excellent guide as most of us had not previously rafted and we had younger kids with us ages 7,10, and 12. It was the perfect balance of rowing and relaxation!! Highly recommend these guys!
