Buffalo Joe’s Rafting brought to you by River Runners
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Buffalo Joe's has merged with River Runners! Our whitewater rafting adventures are run on the Arkansas River from April through September, beginning north of Buena Vista and continuing south through Brown's Canyon which has recently been designated a National Monument! For the experienced rafters we also offer the more challenging trips through the Royal Gorge and Numbers sections of the Arkansas. You'll love our brand new headquarters on the river in downtown Buena Vista's South Main neighborhood. Not only are we among the oldest and safest rafting company's, but we're the only rafting company on the Arkansas River that's walking distance to your hotel room, restaurants, shops and parks! Hope to see you on the river soon!

We did the numbers 1/2 day trip. It was a great experience. I had never been rafting before, but our guide was so great, I felt confident he would get us back safely! Go JT! I was also worried about the temp of the water, but it wasn't too cold in just splashes at a time.

We took our whole family (boys ages 15, 13 and 7) for a full day rafting trip through Brown's Canyon and had a really great time!!! We had J.T. as our guide and he did a fabulous job. He is experienced, knowledgeable and fun and you can tell he enjoys his job! J.T. pointed out lots of great rock formations, knew history and background of the area, which was an added bonus. We would definitely recommend to ANYONE! The steak lunch was also fabulous...we ate until we were stuffed. If we go rafting again in the Buena Vista, CO area we will definitely go with Buffalo Joe's again....we are completely satisfied so no need to go elsewhere. The pictures were a bit pricey...$50 for a CD w/ 5 or 6 pictures, but otherwise completely happy with our trip (did not purchase the CD). We didn't go for the pictures anyway....we went for the fun and we definitely had FUN!

No complaints. Had wet suits and boots available (for a small fee)to wear on the river. Had a VERY experienced guide, Jacoby. Worth every penny. SO much fun.

We took our 2 boys , ages 9 and 12, on the 1/2 day down Brown's Canyon - it was perfect. When asked about the trip it is still at the top of their lists as a highlight. Our guide was great as well - thanks Margo! Would definately recommend.

We took our three boys, ages 18, 15 and 9 down the Brown's Canyon 1/2 day and what a great time! Koby was our guide and he was awesome! Not only did he keep checking on our youngest up front, he gave us history about the area and the best part, he was able to get us out of several tough areas. He was great! Everyone at BJ's were awesome! We will be back!
