“Great fun!!!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We went on the Colorado River Finnders & Youngberg float. It was a fabulous time. Great company, scenery, accommodations and fabulous music by Finnders & Youngberg (and a few of the guides were musically skilled as well!).

There was enough gear for everyone. The gear was in good shape. The information sheet that was sent to me via e-mail was all the info. I needed.

The guides were friendly and diligent. We had one canoe flop in our group and our guides were there in a split second to take care of the situation. Erin, Levi & Richard did a fabulous job of accommodating everyone with meals and information.

One comment I have is that the food was average. Not that I was expecting gourmet meals 3 times a day. BUT..... After floating on the river, hiking the trails and playing in the water I was glad to hear the kitchen call no matter what was on the menu.

I highly recommend Centennial Canoe Outfitters. I had a fabulous time and will definitely sign up for next year's Music Float!!!

“Perfect Trip”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The best part of the entire trip was the guides.
The location was beautiful - plenty of things to do, food was great. But the guides are what made it better than expected.

“Awesome Adventure!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We did the 3 day Gunnison River trip with friends. It was a blast! Beautiful scenery, fun paddling, water gun wars, great food, and plenty of good old-fashioned outdoor fun. Highly recommend this experience and will go on more trips with them in the future!

Hello JennCO,
Glad you had some good old-fashioned outdoor fun. Sometimes our lives get so busy with work & family we don't take time for the really important things like getting outdoors in nature & creating new memories. We look forward to seeing you back out on the river for another adventure.

“Excellent guides, amazing scenery, awesome experience!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

2nd trip with Centennial and I will definitely sign up for more in the future. I did a 3 day trip on the Gunnison a few years ago and enjoyed it so much I signed up for the 3 day Colorado trip. The guides are hilarious, great cooks, knowledgeable and passionate about the environment, and experienced river rafters - what more could you ask for?! I went on a family friendly trip and was impressed at how the guides helped create a cohesive group and responded to the needs of all participants, from tired children to fearful grandmas... The themed trips with experts from various places such as a Boulder Brewing, Denver Zoo, and Denver Museum is an excellent idea! Highly recommend this company!
