We had a really great time on our rafting trip down the San Juan. The water was low so it was a bit of a "float" instead of high action rafting but our guide, Jake, was the show! He had us laughing and singing and telling jokes. He is very knowledgeable about geology and we got a lesson between karaoke... More

Our experience was awesome even though the river was down. Our 2 teenage sons still had a great time in the "duckies" and our 5 year old daughter had a terrific time riding the raft. Ben was an exceptional guide and knows a great deal about the history of the area, he's like a walking history book. He made the... More

Thanks Scott J, As you had mentioned, the river have slowed down some. We take the approach to controlling the factors that are within our grasp and that is providing a quality tour. It is great to hear you enjoyed yourselves and took advantage of the "duckies". they almost always seem to be a hit! We look forward to you... More

The rafting trip down the San Juan River was great. The water level was down some, but it was still an interesting and beautiful trip. We have 4 kids and Jake was our guide. He was awesome with the kids, keeping them entertained the whole time, even on the bus ride to and from the river. The kid's liked him... More

We had a blast with our party of 7 adults! For most of us it was our first time white watering any river, but journeying down the wilderness area of the San Juan was simply gorgeous. The guides were professional, and "steered" us right with their expertise. It was just enough thrill to be worth our time and money. The... More

Tara K, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your trip. Next time I'd recommend asking for the booties. They are part of the trip price and will keep your feet much warmer. As far as the clouds, well, Mother nature doesn't allow us to control the weather. All we can do is hope for the sun to stay... More

Had a blast on the rafting tour. Jake was the best guide possible. Really new how to take us through the rapids like a pro. Also he had tons of knowledge to impart and he was a great singer. Jake knew all the best places in town and even invited us to go retro dancing, though we couldn't make it... More

We felt in very good hands with Brian as our guide and were sad when the ride was over. Would definitely recommend! Wear... More

Amazing trip on the Upper San Juan River. Our guide was phenomenal and the whole family enjoyed every splash of cold water in the rapids on this 3 hour white water rafting excursion. Highly recommend this outfitter over all others in Pagosa Springs. Make sure to book through Discount Adventures for the best price and friendly experience!
