Fantastic raft trip on the upper Roaring Fork from Snomass to Basalt, it seemed like non-stop fast and exciting whitewater. After a good riverside lunch with delicious homemade cookies, we paddled kayaks from Basalt to Carbondale. 3+ hours on the river, about 18 miles; 2...More

Ryan and Molly are awesome! They offer rafting trips that the big rafting companies won't do. Ryan was our guide on the crystal river and it was great! We were the only raft on the water, it was fast and fun. The water was moving...More

Thanks, you're awesome too! We do have lots of options that no other companies offer. The Crystal River is one of those great choices. We pick up at the KOA, Avalanche Ranch, and other locations throughout the local area.

Our family loved the rafting tour today with Ryan! We have 3 kids- ages 10, 9 and 6 and the challenge was perfect for our kids. Ryan was very knowledgeable and we felt we were in great, experienced hands. I'd highly recommend for any family...More

Ryan was awesome and the experience was beautiful. We love his profile on his brochure. Down to earth and very knowledgeable about the river and Colorado. Just my boyfriend and I were on the trip and it was so delightful.

We can offer trips to as little as one person because we are small, and owner operated. Several times throughout the year couples are able to experience a raft to themselves!

Our trip was on Memorial Day weekend and it was just right for us and the kids. The guys really tailored it to our family, but still got plenty of rapids. Would ride again.
