“Top notch rafting company”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We only go with these guys, as their guides are well trained and experienced - the most important thing on the river. ( We had Wyatt who has been rafting this river all his life and knows every rock and eddy) Equipment in good order, trips well organized, safe and reliable - while being tons of fun. All day trip was great, though the water was icy - wear a wet suit or Goretex or equivalent or you will freeze. Even the lunch was very good - they serve it back at their storefront picnic area where you check in (which has restrooms and access to your car) before putting you back on the river. You can shower and dry off afterwards and continue with your day. Showers are coin op and a little stingy. Leave your stuff in your car, the keys with the staff. All in all, an excellent time and outfit.

“Great family fun”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We tried this out for the first time and absolutely loved it. Our guide(Kelly) was great. She had a lot of knowledge about the area and guided us thru the rapids like a pro. My young kids felt like they were a big part of the trip also because of her. The rapids were intense in places and calm in others. We did not experience any hot springs however. We were allowed to go swimming but the water was way too cold so we did not choose to do that. All in all a trip that we will definitely do again! Only negative I guess would be the cost of the pictures that were taken which were awesome by the way. The cost was $60. I would like to see that cost go down especially if you have a certain number of guests you have already paid for. We had 6.

“Great fun!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Did the all day trip with rafting in the morning, then got a chance to kayak in the afternoon. The cold water didn't spoil the fun. Our guide was great and shared a lot of information about the river. flora, and fauna.

“River rafting”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Whitewater Rafting staff do it right. Good equipment in good repair. Safety is first. Having fun is required. Everyone was friendly, courteous, and helpful. Do the rafting on the Colorado River when water levels are higher.

“Water fun”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Our third float with this company, all have been great. Guides are fun and well organized. The process is easy once you are there. June seems to be a good month for the river as there is plenty of water. We felt the price point was appropriate. Please tip the guides. I don't think many people do that any more.
