Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    After arrival at the departure office our staff will get you checked in and outfitted for your adventure. After a short ride to the launch area in one of our vehicles the trip leader will provide everyone with a river orientation/safety talk outlining what to expect on the trip. The guides will then review paddling commands and maneuvering the raft down the river. Then the fun begins! Your guide and fellow crewmembers will paddle through exciting moderate level whitewater that with spectacular 14000' peaks as your backdrop. Your adventure through Brown's Canyon National Monument includes lots of fun and excitement as you weave through Pinball, barrel down Zoomflume, Big Drop, Staircase, Devils Punchbowl and many more leaving you with memories that will last a lifetime.

    We're glad you enjoyed your trip and took the time to write a nice review, but the company you rafted with was KODI. Would be best to give them the review.

    Absolutely loved my experience! Despite the low water, I had a blast paddling through all the rapids. Lots of thrills and laughter with Adrian! Definitely recommend, just make sure to dress appropriately as the water can be quite chilly.
