Awesome, awesome, awesome. Guide was AWESOME! Don't hesitate, just go! The scenery, food and guide were all awesome. It seems tough to make reservations, but just call them and they will set you up. Very flexible.

Just show up from Phoenix or Tucson in a bathing suit and a smile and we will take care of EVERYTHING else, once you make that reservation! Book online or make that phone call, you can't imagine how tough it was back in the 1990's before the interwebs and the smarty phones. Your day of rafting will be filled with Sun, Splashes, Scenery & Saguaros. And according to Veronica and her 11 year old, Salt River Rafting rates a family friendly "4 awesome", Thank you!

Had a great time. All the guides seem to know each other as they come to AZ from Colorado or out east each year for the rafting season. My son (10) and I did the 4 hr outing. Friendly, knowledgeable, safety oriented, but loads of fun.

You can have a lot more fun whitewater rafting when you know the guides have your families safety as their number one priority. It's also true that we are a group of migrant workers from rivers in Colorado and elsewhere who reunite in the Salt River Canyon every spring. All of us at Salt River Rafting look forward to sharing this magical place with families like yours visiting the Phoenix and Scottsdale areas. Thank you for the review, Cheers!

This was the original company when I started white water rafting in many years ago . I have only done the one day rafting trips because I’m not able to get away from work for long periods of time

The one day trip is the perfect venue for beginners first time rafters and seasoned veterans

It is always a wonderful day out on the river not to mention a delicious lunch that is included at the halfway point

Lots of great memories

Reviews from our repeat customers are always a special pleasure but we need to get you out here for an overnight deluxe car camping trip Lawrence. The Salt River Canyon is pure magic at night and the guides cook three amazing river side meals as good as anything you will find near Scottsdale or Phoenix. Thank you for the review, Cheers!

It was a fun trip down the Salt River with spectacular views! The guides were entertaining, highly competent, and excellent cooks. We enjoyed both the rafting and camping experience!

Car camping takes the "roughing it" out of spending the night in a truly remote and spectacular river canyon. And don't worry about having to cook and clean, our guides will serve up three amazing meals during your Raft & Camp experience in the Salt River Canyon of Arizona. Our river-side base-camp is permitted by the White Mountain Apache Tribe and has all the amenities to ease anyone into the joys of camping after a fun day of rafting.There is nothing like spending an evening riverside by a camp fire and you will rarely see a sky so filled with stars. Thank you for the review Kristie, Cheers!

Getting the kids up early is tough during spring break, but going on a white water rafting day trip had everyone up and excited. We were NOT disappointed! Don't expect a 'day spa' experience in this remote high-desert wilderness area. The facilities are primitive, but the equipment and the guides are first rate. Everyone's safety is paramount from the beginning, and our group of 5 felt that way throughout the trip. And the fun on the rapids is fantastic and an adrenaline rush as you go through the shoots!! I actually got caught off-guard on a smaller bump and got pitched over-board. As the Dad, it made for a great memory as my girls made fun of me the rest of the trip. Highly recommend this adventure!

Thank you so much for mentioning the family friendliness of the raft trip and the lasting memories an adventure on the Salt River will make. Safety is our number one priority and once you know and see it in our guides you can relax and enjoy what rafting has to offer. Thanks you for the wonderful review Mark, Cheers!
