My girlfriend's family and I were in town for a Graduation from Indiana and Liquid Descent showed up when searching as a good option. We did an intermediate trip on Clear Creek and it was amazing. The rapids weren't too intense, but that's expected with the early time of the year. The staff was great at explaining the gear, techniques,... More

We did the Gore Canyon trip on August 13 as part of a bachelor party weekend. This trip was a once in a lifetime experience! Liquid Descent outdid themselves in terms of safety and overall experience. The trip started off with a thorough safety brief that prepared us for the Gore Canyon. Once we hit the rapids it was game... More

We got to Liquid Descent a little before our 11 am start. We knew it was going to be a good time when you see the guides blasting music, dancing, bumping volleyball, and looking like they absolutely love their life. And who could blame them? They get to go rafting down Clear Creek multiple times a day and epitomize the... More

Did the half day intermediate trip on Clear Creek. The guides at LD were awesome from the very beginning. We had a great time from beginning to end, and loved our rafting guide Syd. The rapids we went down were extremely fun, and made for an exhilarating trip. Challenging but well worth every penny! Highly recommend this great company! Oh... More

This company caters to keep you comfortable, they offer wet suits, shells and booties for your feet. The suits & shells are complimentary you do need to pay for the shoes. We all had a blast and...

After a reservation snafu on our part, Peter went above and beyond to make sure our family of 4 was able to squeeze into the next available trip. We were outfitted with complimentary wet suits and splash jackets because it was a cloudy, cool day. During the short bus ride to the river access, one of the guides gave a... More

Alan could not have been a better guide. My family loved going rafting. Alan asked my younger son if he wanted to pilot the boat and made his day. My youngest daughter did not want to paddle so Alan gave her the job of "steering the boat". She loved it! This is a well run company who actually wants to... More
