Three of us from Minneapolis visiting sis-in-law living in Boulder and thankfully she chose Rocky Mt. Whitewater Rafting for our trip! Troy and Ron were great but guide Troy gave us a perfect time on the water, esp. since we were newbies and our 11 year old boy was a bit nervous...ideal! What's better than having experts and gentlemen when you do this? Nothing. Do this here, people and you will have a 5-star outing!!!

Great trip with the family with three first timers the creek was fun but not too scary for the kids. The drop off area was a walk to, no long bus ride to start the trip. The guide was great, knowledgable and humorous during the entire trip. This allowed us to see a lot of the local area and wildlife at a competitive price.

My wife and I rafted down Clear Creek on the Intermediate level course this July. Neither of us had been rafting before, but we felt safe and comfortable on this trip and had a ton of fun. In fact, we would probably describe this activity as the highlight of our Colorado trip.

Our guide, Mike, seemed very knowledgeable and had years of experience. The owner, Ron, was in the other raft, and seemed like a very nice and knowledgeable guy as well. Our trip down the creek was very exciting, and we had a blast. Our only complaint would be that the water flow was not as fast as we would have liked it to be, and thus the trip wasn't quite as fast paced as we had expected. Of course, RMWR has no control over this and we were very satisfied with the experience over all.

This was such a cool trip! Went with the family, plus two FOD's (friends of the daughter). Captain Ron has got some classic humorous lines and is an awesome guide. It was quite a memorable day for all of us! The class IV rapids did not disappoint, and Ron contributed with a lot of facts/history about the area and Clear Creek. It's amazing how many of these rafting companies have emerged on Clear Creek, but a lot can be said for supporting someone who's been making the trip for over 15 years and you have the water to yourselves (rather than a caravan of rafts)... it certainly enhances the experience. Pictures were priceless.

My 17 year old son and I were fortunate enough to be the only two on our raft with our guide, Ron. We went on the Intermediate level trip on Clear Creek. Ron is a very experienced guide, who is obviously determined to give his guests a very positive experience. His instructions are clear, his knowledge extensive and his philosophy of having the guests participate in navigating the rapids was very rewarding for us. There are obviously many rafting companies operating on Clear Creek, most of which seem bigger, but based on our experience, I see absolutely no reason not to choose Rocky Mountain.
