Although the bridge closure didn't allow for a full trip down the river we still had a wonderful time. We we're given the opportunity to double down and the faster rapids. I would highly recommend this company. Our guide carebear was interesting and knowledgeable. He spoke with our kids and included them in on the fun instead of just directing conversation at the adults. Made my kids enjoy it just as much as myself. Very funny and entertaining bus ride back. Great company.

Thank John B

Had Collin as a guide today and he was phenomenal (to say the least)!! Had never been whitewater rafting before and this was the perfect first experience. They were so knowledgeable and helpful and willing to cater the trip towards the guests. And the halfday trip through the Shoshone rapids was the best first experience.

Plus, out of all the whitewater rafting done in this area, they are the only company to have a dock on the river and so we drive upriver and floated through the rapids and landed right at their business at the end - didn't have to take a bus ride or car ride back. Would recommend this place to everyone - I will DEFINITELY take another trip with them!

Thanks Collin for the great experience!

Very accommodating and well organized. We had a great day on the Colorado with Whitewater and our guide (Stormy) was outstanding! Don't hesitate to book with them.

Perfect trip for the whole family. Rapids were fun but not scary. Tour guide ("Big Tuna") was informative, entertaining, engaging, and clearly knew what he was doing - everything you hope for in a guide. Great to see the beauty of the canyon at a slower pace. Highly recommend. Bring water shoes and Croakies for your sunglasses (although you can also rent booties and buy Croakies there).

We paid for a 3 hour trip. When we got there, they switched it to something else that was mostly riding on a sweltering school bus. They put us on the boat for about 20 or 25 minutes and stopped for another bus ride and another few minutes on the water. Not at all what we were told on the phone and certainly not what we paid for. It felt like we were carrying boats for longer than we were even on the river. They said it was because of construction but they could have had the decency to let us know that the trip was a mess before we drove hours to get there. They said the construction is happening everyday for the rest of the summer but they are still trying to call this a "halfday trip" !!***!! Not cool.
