From the moment you arrive it is clear that everyone at Noah's Ark wants you to have a great time and make the entire process as smooth as possible. They have a great system and it works. The rafting was a blast for kids age 6-11 and all of the adults. I recommend the splash jacket if you get cold easy.

“Arkansas River white water”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I went with my wife and daughter on the rafting trip with Noah's Ark on the recommendation of a friend. There are many outfitters on the Arkansas, so it would have been hard to know without a referral. I highly recommend Noah's Ark. They are very well organized, and the trip is spectacular. Staffed with young, energetic and courteous young folks. Our guide was fantastic. Safety first all the way, but a lot of fun. He made us feel confident and safe. The scenery is spectacular and the rapids a blast. On top of that, I think it is a great value. A 10 out of 10!

This is a well run place-very organized! We had fun-water is amazing right now. Anna was our guide and she was great-gave her jacket to my 6 year whose legs got cold. I would recommend closed toe shoes and a rain jacket. They rent wet suits for only $7 or splash jackets for $5. We also did the ropes course with our 10 & 12 year old boys-they loved it. You get 2 1/2 hours to play. The swing is very fun.

“Rafting trip”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Last weekend we rafted with Noah's Ark on a half day trip. What a great experience! We have rafted in places all over the world and this company has it together. Andy Ladner, our guide, . was wonderful...ask for him. They are organized, safety oriented, and have good equipment. I am a travel agent and they get my vote for anyone wanting a safe and fun trip. Be sure to book in advance if you can, as they are busy....They do have equipment to rent , but the helmet is included. If you have a water repellant jacket, and water shoes, that would be helpful.

“An experience you will want to do again and again”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We have visited Noah's Ark for many years and yet it is as good or better every time. The guides are incredibly well trained, but what makes it so great is their way of making personal connections with everyone. Although they do this every day, they act like it is just as exciting for them as it is for you. They incorporate stories and jokes, science and history trivia about the landscape, and show genuine interest in each person. Our guide,Gavin, takes his job very seriously. We felt absolutely safe because he was so conscientious and clear at communicating what we should or should not be doing. He was full of smiles and questions about us all and it seemed his ultimate goal was that we all had an incredible time. The Adventure Park on site was awesome also. As challenging or fun as you choose it to be with guides there to consult if you want or need assistance. There are several rafting companies in town, but you would be missing out to go with any company but Noah's.
