Buffalo Joe’s Rafting brought to you by River Runners

Attraction details
Owner description: Buffalo Joe's has merged with River Runners! Our whitewater rafting adventures are run on the Arkansas River from April through September, beginning north of Buena Vista and continuing south through Brown's Canyon which has recently been designated a National Monument! For the experienced rafters we also offer the more challenging trips through the Royal Gorge and Numbers sections of the Arkansas. You'll love our brand new headquarters on the river in downtown Buena Vista's South Main neighborhood. Not only are we among the oldest and safest rafting company's, but we're the only rafting company on the Arkansas River that's walking distance to your hotel room, restaurants, shops and parks! Hope to see you on the river soon!

No complaints. Had wet suits and boots available (for a small fee)to wear on the river. Had a VERY experienced guide, Jacoby. Worth every penny. SO much fun.

We took our 2 boys , ages 9 and 12, on the 1/2 day down Brown's Canyon - it was perfect. When asked about the trip it is still at the top of their lists as a highlight. Our guide was great as well - thanks Margo! Would definately recommend.

We took our three boys, ages 18, 15 and 9 down the Brown's Canyon 1/2 day and what a great time! Koby was our guide and he was awesome! Not only did he keep checking on our youngest up front, he gave us history about the area and the best part, he was able to get us out of several tough areas. He was great! Everyone at BJ's were awesome! We will be back!

We were recommend to Buffalo Joe's by a local (always a good thing). Once on the river I was so happy to not be with the other larger companies. Noah's Ark had people in the raft that sat in the middle and do not paddle as well - Noah's Ark had people walk around some of the rapids (not because of age/health - because the guides are not as well trained). The other rafting companies looked better but were larger groups with more people on the rafts. Look on trippoons for a coupons. Great staff, great ride, very safe.

We went not knowing what to expect or if it was going to be too dangerous for our boys (7 and 8) but Buffalo Joe's Whitewater rafting company by far exceeded our expectations. They were very conscious about the safety of our family but without subtracting to any of the excitement and thrill of going whitewater rafting. It was wonderful and we can't wait to do it again. Our guide was excellent. I recommend them highly
