Friends and I did the Half-Day Intermediate trip with really high river levels. It was a great time with lots of whitewater action but nothing terrifying. You definitely need to prepare to get wet with VERY cold water! The guides were amazing - both in their navigation skills and the information they shared about the various whitewater sections and the history of the area. My friends and I go up almost every year and try to go with Liquid Descent because we've always had a great experience. The facilities are a bit basic but I think most raft places are similar. It's great to pair a half-day morning trip with a well-deserved lunch & beer in Idaho Springs.

I 100% recommend this group for white water rafting. It appears to be the most popular company when you search online, and there is a good reason for it. This was my first time white water rafting, and my friends signed us up for the intermediate tour - I was a little scared, but expected that the guide would help me figure out what to do. It was a blast. The company orients you well, teaches you how to paddle and stay safe. Our guide led us expertly as we had a great time on the water, getting our whole group to act like a team. They have great gear, very clean. All staff members there are friendly and helpful. We arrived an hour before our trip started, and they were very chill about letting us hang out on their couches and picnic tables. I met the owner, who opened Liquid Descent 8 years ago. He says he works to build a culture within the staff where they care about connecting you with nature, helping you expand your comfort zones, and creating good memories with your friends.

We went for a bachelor party and a ride of the raging Clear Creek and we got a crazy ride. We flipped on the Phoenix rapid and experienced the full power of the creek. Liquid Decent was prepared for any problems and had extra people waiting to assist us at this point. They were very safe and provided plenty of safety measure to ensure everyone had a good ride.

As the owner of another rafting company in the state, I know a great operation when I see it. Liquid Descent brings quality gear and a commitment to safety for a fun experience with their guests. Went on the full day advanced canyon and had a great time.

Four of us went on an intermediate rafting outing and it was a superb way to spend a morning or afternoon. Chill environment but still very safe and structured. Good music on transport. Excellent guide named Peter was funny and knowledgeable!!! The ride was about 45 minutes in length and worth the money.
