Way Fun In The Water

The trip was fantastic, the employees professional and the overall experience outstanding. Leave the phones in the car or bring a ziploc bag to put them in.

A phenomenal time. My guide was Ron, I was one of the Teenagers in this family, and he was awesome. The guides are very informative, and run down a mandatory safety list. The list was rather intimidating at first, but at the end we were told that it was just for very rare circumstances. There was a short drive to... More

I had a total of four people in my group and three strangers and a tour guide, Ron, for the beginner's course on Clear Creek. Ron explained the whole course which involved up to Class III rapids as well as all the safety procedures and proper rowing. The tour lasted up to 90 minutes, and it was extremely enjoyable. I...

I wanted to take my wife whitewater rafting (her first time---she was a little nervous) and staying in Boulder this was the closest venue for us. We booked the beginner section of course..and with water being low it took about 1.25 hrs...with two class 3 rapids. It was just perfect for my wife. RMWR was very safety conscious and well... More

Took the wife and two teenage boys on the Intermediate Level 1/2 day. It was amazing and exciting. I would highly recommend this company. The guide was helpful and knowledgeable. I plan to take another journey with RMWR next year even earlier in the season when the water is at its highest level.

My group included 3 adults and 3 kids. All kids between 9 and 11 yrs old. Staff is great. They go over all of the important details and make it fun for the kids too. Even though it was the beginner trip, we did get wet. We liked the trip so much that we booked a 2nd one before heading... More

We went on the beginner trip. My youngest thought it would be "boring and for babies". Wrong! We had a group of six, four adults and two kids (11&14). Only two of the adults had been before, first time for the rest of us. Our guide Pat was awesome! Went over the rules before hand and then down to the... More

I booked a trip for 4, one of whom was very reluctant to go on a whitewater rafting trip. We booked the intermediate trip on Clear Creek. The guide was mostly adept at getting us through the rapids, told us what to expect ahead of time, confidently solved the problem of getting grounded on a rock, and we all enjoyed... More
