We had an amazing time with Zach as our guide. I felt safe with the entire crew;they were easy going, detailed on safety and kept it fun. Great time to go though as CO has had a ton of snow so water was at its peak for our rafting trip however cold as heck ha ha. My teens enjoyed it so much we were all trying to figure out how we can return before this season ends. Thanks for the included photos too, great extra touch.

10 stars for Guide Woody and White Water Adventure Outfitters! Our group had the very best time and we are also convinced we had the best guide. Woody was cracking jokes and telling us awesome stories the entire trip in addition to giving us the best white water experience! We will go white water rafting again and it will definitely be with this company. Support small businesses!
This was one of the most fun things I’ve done! I highly recommend it for anyone heading out to Colorado. There were lots of rafting companies to choose from, but I decided to use these guys based on the good reviews. They were very nice and organized. Our guide was John Rice and he was outstanding! These guys will make sure you have a blast and in the safest way possible. Next time I’ll go for the full day trip.
Had a great time!!! Easy to book the trip and great clean accommodations for changing and storing anything you didn’t want to take on the water. I really enjoyed that it was a smaller group as we only had two boats. We passes another company that had over 5 boats going at the same time! Free pictures came with the price too! Our guide, Kelsey, did a great job! Highly recommended rafting company!
