Frank Miller and the River rafter, Cole, were OUTSTANDING guides in Mesa Verde. Frank is very knowledgeable about the entire area. His manner is very personable and his geological and geographical teachings are both fascinating and accurate. The teenagers in our group were immediately drawn into the adventure by his personality. Cole was so very kind and careful with all of us as he accompanied us on the tour and drove us for miles when an accident (not our bus)stopped traffic on the highway for three hours. I highly recommend Frank and Cole.

OUTSTANDING! Frank is the man, the guide and the teacher! He has the knowledge of one who was born and raised here and who's mothers family is Santaquin Ute - Black foot. The whole crew at Mountain Waters has been blown away by Frank's knowledge, friendliness and endless stories of a man who is living life to the fullest. He and Cole have connected to be our Mesa Verde National Park heavy weights, we are so glad you enjoyed them, thank you for the kind words, Cheers!

What a great crew to spend a day on the river with. The lower Las Animas trip is perfect for a family adventure. We brought our 9 year old daughter and her friend and it was the highlight of our vacation. Collin was an excellent guide and we would no doubt recommend Mountain waters rafting.

Another "highlight of our vacation" review! Whoo Hoo! Mountain Waters Rafting is here to bring your adventures to life, make your dreams come true and fix all the problems in the world! No really, think about it, if we could get everyone in Washington D.C. on a raft trip working together as a team having fun, well, anything could be possible......!

We had Jeremiah as our family's personal guide. He was very nice and fun and let my 8 year old sit in the back for a bit and give the Captain commands - it was his favorite part. We look forward to going back.

A life lesson: put the kids in charge (appropriately of course) and a great adventure will be had by one and all. We look forward to having you back for more rafting, jeeping, zip lining, and rail road adventures, Cheers!

We did a quick 2 hour taster rafting trip down The Animas River. Mountain Waters Rafting were great. From booking to the day everything was clear and organised. They're a great bunch of people. Very safe, well organised and fun! The river was running at around 3000 CFS when we did our trip and we had to sign 2 wavers but it wasn't too bad in all honesty. In fact after the rapid section everyone in the boat wanted to go back and do it all again even if we were all wet (in June the water was cold)! Great fun and if your in Durango then go give it a go, really a fun experience!

Give it a go, it's Great Fun! Twice the fun takes twice the waivers just so you know this isn't the mellow family float that the Animas becomes in August. Either way we go the extra mile to make it safe so you can focus on having a really fun experience. Thank you for the review!
