"Doug is a rock star"
...or a superhero. Depending on which child in our group that you talk to. Now when faced with life threatening situations or ethically challenging moral dilemmas they ask themselves "what would Doug do?" Not really. But he is an awesome river guide.

This is a GREAT company with an AMAZING crew. Clearly all the cool kids work here. From the office staff to the bus driver to the guides, everyone was friendly, enthusiastic, and really good at their jobs. We took the 1/2 day trip (yay snacks!) and a good time was had by all. I would recommend Mountain Waters Rafting without hesitation to anyone looking for a great river experience!

We had so much fun doing a 4 hour trip and being the only ones in her boat. We can not wait to go back and do this again. Kelly was the added bonus and I loved how much she loves doing rafting tours!!

Thank you LeAnna! Kelly was raised by a group of river rats in the wild and has adapted well to civilization in large part to being able to spend time on the river daily with awesome folks like you.

Awesome way to experience the Animas River when staying in Durango. We were fortunate to have an awesome guide in Kady! Pick up and and drop off right next to Double Tree.
From what we could see of other rafting tours, we definitely picked the right company. Our guides were great!

At the time of this trip southwestern Colorado was experiencing a drought so we had about 2 tiny rapids & got caught up on rocks a lot. Our guide Bailey knew the Animas River well & had an upbeat personality which made our first time raft trip a great experience. Can't wait to try it again hopefully with more rapids. The 2 hour raft tour was a great value.

Bailey is upbeat AND unique. She is a great river guide and great in the office which is kind of like being a great pitcher and great hitter in baseball, kinda rare and super special. Thank you for writing!

We went on a kayaking trip yesterday, it was awesome. Our guide was great. The only small complaint I had was that they put the three of us in kayaks out with three regular rafts. The raft kept getting stuck and just being kind of slow in general. We had to keep hanging back to stay out of the way of the rafts which got a little tiresome. Might have been better if they had sent the rafts out about 15 minutes a head of us as we had our own guide anyway. Overall the company was great, equipment was great, and our guide Kelly was excellent. All of the staff was great and very personable. Would definitely book another trip with this company in the future.

Congratulations for making it into the exclusive 1% club. I know that term is loaded these days, but having a group of kayakers who do as well as you did is about, you guessed it, 1%! Please do a snow dance for us this winter so we don't see water as low as you did this year and thanks for writing.
