My daughter and I went rafting with Mountain Waters Rafting when we first visited Durango in 2016 and had an amazing time with Marcus. When we discussed what to do this year in Durango (2017), rafting was at the top of our list. This year we had Dominique and Colin as our primary guides. We were in the inflatable kayaks again this year, and it was again a fantastic adventure. I highly recommend the 1/2 day (4-hour tour). Both times we went the river was higher than usual. This was awesome. Even with advice from Dominique, Colin, and Aaron, I ended up flipping my kayak in the whitewater park. But no worries, Colin came by in the raft and I was back in a boat within 2 minutes. Of course, my 13 year old daughter made it through the whitewater park no problem at all! The folks at Mountain Waters Rafting are great - and it was a highlight of our trip!

The reviews from our return guests are our faves! Thanks for coming back, thanks for taking the time to write a review and thanks for telling people to check out the Inflatable Kayak option for that extra bit of adventure for those ready for the challenge and possible "no worries" swim. Cheers!

Highly recommended. Guides were very thorough and entertaining at times. Water is very cold even in summer (especially if you are from The South).

Do we need wet-suits? Depends, where are you from? Chicago. Then no. Phoenix, Texas, Florida, then yes. Thank you for the review!

Rafting the town run is the appetizer.
Kayaking the town runs add some spice.
Challenging the Upper Animas is a Full Course Dinner!
Thank you for the meal plan!

Great to hear AZ Sun Child! May I suggest you put some level 4 or level 5 white water rafting onto your bucket list now that you have done the introductory run on the family friendly class 3 Animas River?
