“Ride the Duckies”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

14 of us decided to brave the rapids in the inflatable Duckie kayaks. The trip was well organized and run. Dry wet suits and splash jackets were offered. We spent about 2 hours on the river and had a great time. But paddling isn't easy and you definitely need to have a moderate level of fitness at best to handle the paddling. We laughed a lot and had a super time!

“Awesome white water rafting experience!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Our guide, Mike, was UNbelievable! The rafting was everything we hoped it would be. Mike was highly skilled, experienced AND hilarious (an added bonus). He even made the drive over independence pass very entertaining and was filled with vast interesting facts about the area.

“Whitewater fun”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Probably been on 10 different rafting trips over many years and this was up there for fun and laughs. Guides (Seth) were funny and they made the independence pass drive go v. Fast. Or maybe they were just going fast? Trip was well organized without feeling like we were part of a factory tour. But do paddle when they tell you to...

“Props from Texas”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Adventures like this are all about the guides. Just got back from a terrific white water rafting trip with Mike,Seth and Casey. This is one of the best outfitters and trips we've ever taken! These guys could have their own SNL skit. They were friendly and funny made the ride over to the water go fast. The white water rafting was great. Be sure to ask about the G-Force and the holy place.

“Rafting Trip”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This morning my roommates and I rafted the class 4 run slaughterhouse on the roaring fork with blazing adventures and had a wonderful time! Everyone was very helpful and accommodating. Our raft guide was Casey V and he made our trip perfect. Making jokes throughout our trip and personal conversation made us all feel comfortable and safe. I WILL be rafting with blazing adventures more this summer! Highly recommended.
