Rafting the Arkansas river
We had a great time with wilderness aware.
We had a great guide (Rachel ) she was the best.
We had a great group in our raft.
The weather was perfect.
Lots of rafts on the water.
Highly recommend.
We are in our 60’s and had a wonderful time.
The water was low creating many hazards. Rachel was a expert in guiding us down River.

Great afternoon on the river
Aug 2021 • Family
We enjoyed the variety of water we rafted from gentle floating to class 3 rapids. Our guide Jake did an excellent job of calling out instructions as we maneuvered through tricky parts of the river. It was a very enjoyable and exhilarating experience.

Amazing rafting experience
Jul 2021 • Family
Request Michael as your guide. He was phenomenal. His experiences provided for a great trip filled with lots of stories, descriptions of the canyon and lots of laughs. We were very impressed with the way he could maneuver the raft through all the rocks and twist and turns. He made our trip so memorable. We are still talking about the rapids and laughing a lot about all the silly things we did. I highly recommend Wilderness Aware to book your rafting experience. You won’t be disappointed.

Great Family Trip
Adults and teens took the half day Browns Monument float trip. We had a great guide named Michael. He was knowledgeable, safe and entertaining! The weather was wonderful and a half day trip was perfect for us. This float company was very organized and efficient and clean. I would highly recommend them and I would definitely use them again! Thanks for a great day Michael!
