River Rafting Safety is Our Number One Concern

A few months ago, the river rafting community was concerned that we would get enough water to fill our rivers for thrilling river rafting and kayaking in Colorado and it’s neighboring states. Today, with the snow and rain storms on May, our main concern is almost too much water flowing through the many rivers of Colorado.

Our river guides are safety trained under rigorous training programs
