“Hidden gem north of Bryce!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

What a special family-owned & operated business! We learned SO much & had MANY laughs along our exciting raft trip! The couple suggestions I would make is to have some sort of picture taking system - we didn't get any pictures of our adventure....and to have a longer option than the 2-hour ride. With the prep time & driving to/from the boat launch, it felt like the ride was too short - we weren't ready to be done yet! But better to be left wanting more than the other way around...:)

“Great Rafting With ARK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

We took a family of 9 on a raft trip with ARK. We all got to ride in the same raft. The ages ranged from 65 to 7. We had a great time! Don was a great guide. I highly recommend this trip. The 2 hours flew by. Make sure that you make a reservation before you head to Marysvale, UT.

“Fun for the Entire Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

We were down at Bryce Canyon this past week for a family reunion. The HIGHLIGHT of my entire week was our rafting trip with Always Rafting. Don has the BEST guides on the river. So even if he can't take you, his guides are wonderful! We were a diverse group of 13 people, including five kids ranging in ages from 5-12 years old, some spunky grandparents, and a rather chicken mom (me), and we ALL had a blast! We had a great ride on the river, got plenty wet, and enjoyed learning a bit about the area. Joe was our guide, and I was amazed at his skill in handling the boat and his ability to make it a great trip for everyone! ...though he did seem to delight in turning the boat for MAXIMUM SOAKAGE!!! The rapids were great fun.

Always Rafting is a great family business, very professional and very welcoming. I would heartily refer them to anyone. The 90 minute drive from Bryce is worth it! You will have a GREAT TIME!

“Rafting and History Lesson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

Very entertaining trip down the mighty Sevier. Water was low so the rapids were not as good as they will be soon but it was a very enjoyable day. The water was very refreshing, yes you do get wet, and Don's history lesson during the float times was interesting. Overall, great fun. Debra was very accomdating with our reservation. We will do this again.

“They Are The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2011

My wife and I have been avid whitewater boaters for the last 4 years. It all started with a trip down Marysvale Canyon with Don and Debra from AlwaysRafting. We had so much fun we were hooked. We now own three boats of our own (two tandem duckies and one hardshell kayak) and we do lots of trips around the west. Westwater and the Moab Daily on the Colorado, Payette, Snake, Green River and others. We love boating the Sevier River in Marysvale and try to hit it at least once a year. It is a lesser known whitewater gem.

The rapids are very fast and fun and the scenery is spectacular. There are other guides on this stretch of water but AlwaysRafting is hands down the best! Don not only knows the river but the local history and geology too. He is an excellent pilot, a real character, and always makes sure that the trip is very enjoyable.

Bottom line: this is one of the funnest day floats around and Don and Debra with AlwaysRafting are just great people!
