Fun, friendly, family oriented whitewater rafting trips. Our guides have a minimum of five years of guiding experience and although you are on vacation "safety doesn't take a vacation". You meet us at our convenient location on river, the same location since 1982! We are the longest family owned and operated whitewater rafting company in Southwest Colorado. Trips depart throughout the day and are a perfect way to cool down after a hot hike in Mesa Verde or a thrilling splash after enjoying a walk through historic downtown Durango. You may have seen town from riding on the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad train now get a totally different perspective. Parking is free and secure and RV parking is available. When the snow is gone and the water level in the river drops we pull out specially designed river tubes, tubing is a local favorite.Come to have fun and dress to get wet!

Only $28 and well worth the trip. Our guide Ali was well trained and knew how to navigate the rapids and big rocks. We never felt unsafe or threatened. Lots of fun!!

Let me start by saying I am a long time Durango local who lives on the river (literally, house overlooks the Animas). We have inflatable kayaks so we never raft with local companies since we have our own equipment. My sister and niece were in...More

Had a good time. Quick to get us out on the river. Felt safe. Kids enjoyed the float and a little action through the white water activity center. Would definitely recommend. No nonsense.
