Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet at our riverside headquarters located just 2 miles South of Buena Vista, Colorado 30-45 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time. Upon arrival our helpful staff will direct you on how to prepare for the day and will make recommendations about rental gear (wetsuits, splash jackets and river shoes) based on weather/ water conditions.

    After enjoying a free continental breakfast (offered on morning departures only) and getting changed into your river clothes you will be given a safety orientation that covers possible scenarios that you may encounter during your trip and what to do if they happen. From there, we will transport you about 15 minutes to the river put-in location.

    After paddling through 6 miles of the heart pumping rapids of the Numbers section you will either end your half-day trip and return to our office, or if you are doing the full-day trip you will enjoy a riverside lunch. The full-day trip then continues into the technical class III-IV Narrows section and ends at our office take-out. Don't forget to view your photos before saying good bye to your guide!

    We had a great ride with a great guide (Tony)! The water was perfect (albeit a bit chilly!), and we led the pack of 4 rafts without a spill! Thank goodness for wet suits and jackets - it was a great way to start the long weekend prior to the Leadville 100. Can't wait to go

    Glad to hear Ethan took good care of you! This may be his last summer of guiding before he starts an engineering career.
