This is a great business to frequent if you want to have a wonderful rafting trip! All the guides really knew what they were doing and I felt safe the whole time. I would highly recommend these guys!

Having never done whitewater rafting, Ryan quickly advised me from a beginner's trip into an intermediate adventure. I was considering beginner only because of our inexperience. Ryan was correct!

Becky then fielded my follow-up phone inquiry, was friendly and quite pleasant.

The online forms arrived instantly via email.

The guides made the instruction simple, they had all of the appropriate gear, and knew the river and conditions exceedingly well.

Great job folks!

Really enjoyed the smaller group - other outfitters were trying to keep 20+ rafts together, and we didn't have that hassle. All of the staff were great. Clear creek in August - well - it's not exactly a thrill ride. Great as a beginner float, I suppose

We havent done this before so we wanted to choose an experienced crew. The folks at DA did a great job going thru all the safety procedures and training involved. Our captain (Jordan) was not only an obvious expert in the boat but also a very well spoken and knowledgable tour guide. Rafting was a big part of our vacation this year and it was awesome. We did the intermediate run and found it to be the perfect balance of excitement without feeling like it was too much for us. Scenery was amazing....all around wonderful trip. Only downside: wish it was a little longer
