We did the 1/2 day Brown's Canyon adventure with Noah's Ark on August 6, 2014 and had a fabulous time! The place is efficient, organized, professional, clean, and friendly. All is done with excellence and the staff is well trained and caring! I loved that Noah's Ark is right on the water and you don't have to be bused anywhere to put your raft in the water! You put it in right on the property! We enjoyed the scenery and we all got to paddle except my 9 year old who sat in the middle for safety reasons. It was just enough excitement without being scary for the kids' first time rafting. However, I think my older boys (16 and 13) would have liked a bit more adventurous rapids. We were on class 3 and 3.5 and our guide Ramsey was SO good that it seemed less thrilling than I anticipated - do note that I was in the back! :) Ramsey our guide is a young man of character - he was interested in all of my boys and he was very safety conscious. He knew the history and stories of the formations of the canyon as well as other points of interest which kept us engaged during calmer portions of the river. I highly recommend Noah's Ark - we will definitely make rafting with them a summer tradition!
