There is just enough excitement to keep you entertained. The guide was cordial and competent in his actions. Easy in and out of the river. I would highly... More

We went rafting with our 13 year old son. It was beautiful scenery, and just enough excitement to keep us on our toes. Only one rapid was really big, and the company had set up several safety precautions at this point. Our guide, Drew, was friendly and very capable. He was looking out for our son, and managed to move... More

Although late in the season with the river somewhat low, our guide had the expertise to make our trip fun, exciting, wet, wild and wacky. He also demonstrated extensive knowledge of the local flora, fauna and history throughout our adventure. We paddled, splashed screamed and laughed our way down the Poudre with great delight. By our return to The Paddlers... More

My husband, myself and a small group of friends went rafting the last weekend of the season. Even though the water was pretty low, Nate was an amazing guide! Very knowledgeable & informative on the whole trip. Very organized, experienced, and fun! I would never go anywhere else!

Had all the gear we needed and it wasn't too expensive either. We are already planning on going back earlier next year when the water... More

The whole experience was great. Drew led us through the safety info with humour and precision. Aaron was our raft guide and he was rad, navigating us through the water with ease. I would definitely recommend this for anyone seeking some adventure and just for the beautiful scenery. I would choose this group again and do it in early summer,... More
