“Request Kiel!”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

We had an excellent trip, and though we went off season when the water level was low, our guide, Kiel, made sure we got our money's worth. As a first time rafter I was not sure of what to expect, but our Royal Gorge half day trip gave us all the fun, thrills and laughs that I hoped to have. When going through the rapids, Kiel maximized the excitement with his fancy whitewater rafting moves and though we had our spills (which was part of the fun!), I always felt safe and in capable hands. During calm waters, Kiel made sure we were still entertained. Kiel was very knowledgeable of not only the water, but of its surrounding history and landscape as well. Kiel was easy going and would get along great with any group. He cares about his passengers and and truly wants to give them the best trip possible. Kiel's ability to handle the water makes any rafter at ease. If you are any where near Canyon City and are looking for a little adventure and a lot of fun, go to Raftmasters and request Kiel!

“An adventure that wont be forgotten”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

We went with a group of couples. It was a lot of fun and adventurous at times (ok, fine the whole time). I dont have anything negative to say, just a different type of experience that I have not done before. We had a great time and would suggest for anyone to try it at least once. Our group may have overdid it a little bit. We went 1/2 day Royal Gorge on Saturday and Double dip Royal Gorge on Sunday. Definitly by the third time I knew what to expect a little more then the first time. All though, I had a different experience each time down. We also got to see some Big Horn Sheep. Amazing!! I got to know our guide Kara a little bit and wish her the best of luck on whatever she decides to do in the upcoming year.

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed 15 September 2011

This is the first time I have been rafting and it was great fun. The rapids were enough to be fun, but not enough to be scary. Our guide was very informative and very good at his job.

“Best rafting experience ever”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

We had a great experience rafting with Raft Masters. They took care of everything for us and made sure we knew all the safely rules and what to expect before we started on our adventure. We rafted the Royal Gorge and it was awesome. BL was an outstanding guide, giving us history of the Gorge area, and helping us help him navigatie the waters of the Gorge. We would highly recommend them if you plan to to raft the Arkansas River. Ask for BL, he's the best!
