We couldn't be more impressed with Blue Sky! This was our first rafting trip as a family, and everyone had a blast! Wyatt was our guide; he was hilarious and very knowledgeable about local history & geology. Glenwood Canyon is beautiful--even more so from a raft--a must for anyone visiting Glenwood. We had a paddle splash fight with the other... More

Booked a morning rafting trip and shuttle for bike trip the afternoon before we wanted to go with no problem. Every member of the staff was incredibly friendly and very helpful. I definitely recommend the morning rafting trips as it is not too crowded (lots of rafts on the river in the afternoon). Wyatt was our raft guide and he... More

The trip down the river was exciting, interesting and absolutely gorgeous. Our guide Tim was great. He memorized everyone's name and addressed us by name. He asked questions about each one and was genuinely interested in the folks in the raft. Tim knew about the area, the rock formations, the river and anything else we asked him. He was a... More

We took two kids--one 5 and one 9--on both the half day rafting tour and the double shoshone. It was far and away the best activity of the summer for our family. The half day is good for the scenery and just being out on the water a bit longer but the double shoshone was great for just hitting the... More

This is definitely an adventure that everyone needs to experience at least one time in their life! All of the guides and staff at Blue Sky are amazing. Very knowledgeable, entertaining, easy to be around, and in general just enhance the experience. This is a full day raft trip that is worth every cent. Make sure to wear sunscreen and... More

Kudos to Riley G. our guide who did an amazing job and was very personable. Initially on the bus ride over, I have to admit... More

Thank you to everyone at Blue Sky Adventures and Canyon Cycles for making our weekend in Glenwood Springs area amazing. We were a party of eight rafters and 10 cyclists. Our youngest was 4 and the oldest was 71. From the initial call to make the reservation, to the check in for bikes and for rafting and finally the raft... More

Even though the day started cloudy and rainy, it was the perfect day on the river. Joe, our guide, was awesome! He knew all the wildlife and lots of facts about the route we took. We saw bighorn sheep in Glenwood Canyon, several Bald Eagles and plenty of whitewater fun. Lunch was very good, but the option to purchase a... More

I hosted three friends from out of state- two had never white water rafted before. One was terrified and in tears during the orientation. When all said and done - This experience left a positive and lasting impression from the check in process to unloading at the end of the trip. Brad Schneider was our guide and he was fantastic....

Our guide was Tim. He kept us safe and entertained through this 1/2 day adventure on the Colorado River. The other staff members were excellent as well!
