Closed until June 2023 - The rafting season is short! We hit the river each year from mid-June to mid-August.

Looking for a mellow river float, rather than the full-on white water experience? We've got that too, and what a float it is. Enjoy a tranquil journey on the Arkansas River where you’ll have time to unwind and play in the water. The entire float is filled with stunning views of three different mountain ranges and playfully relaxed class II water.

After a brief safety instruction and practice session with your guide, launch into the river and enjoy your relaxing day on the water.

We are NOT a high-production rafting company. We won’t just toss you a life vest, tell you what to do (and not do) if you fall out of the raft, and off we go. We truly guide you to help you fully immerse yourselves in the experience and soak it all in.Our guides are local, career rafters, not seasonal guides. They’re deeply connected to the river and its turns, rocks, rapids, and changing conditions. They can’t wait to share this stretch of water with you and teach you the rich history of the area.
