Our guide Isec was very knowledgeable and passionate about the landscape. We enjoyed his informational comments along the Route. The water was the perfect temperature as was the sky. The Racecourse was relaxing yet exciting. We managed to catch the last rafting weekend of the season on September 4th. The water was low but there was still some exciting Rapids

Loved, loved, loved our rafting experience! Our guide Judah was wonderful- so knowledgable and interesting. Plus he has a great sense of humor. All of four of us (including two very picky teenagers) had a fabulous time. Kokopelli Rafting is the way to go!

We did an impromptu rafting trip that was scheduled the day before. The organizer on the phone was super helpful and patient with us in planning the trip. They also provided excellent directions to get to the meet up spot. Once there the guides were both super nice and kind. Myriah especially seemed excited at all points in the trip. She told us stories about the surrounding area and gave us a chance to swim in the calmer parts of the river. When we got stuck she was super patient and didn't ever seem upset if a member of the group didn't know what to do.

Took the kids white water rafting down the Rio Grande Racecourse. Our 6 year old was scared at first, but our guide, Jack, talked to her and made her feel better. Both our kids ended up loving it and wanting to go more! Jack from Kokopelli Rafting Adventures was knowledgeable, experienced, safe, and fun... perfect for our family! 🥰 He even brought a snorkel and blow up alligator so he could do a trick for the kids at the end.

Jack and Abelino were great guides! My wife and son had a fantastic time and we enjoyed the complete day on the river. Kokopelli is a first class operation. Thanks again, Bobby Moedl
