“Fun in the Canoe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

We took the three day canoe trip on the Colorado River over Labor Day weekend. We canoed on calm water (a few wiggles), saw beautiful vistas, ate delicious food cooked by the guides, drank wine and laughed alot around the campfire. So refreshing to be outside in the wilderness and on the river. The end of a great summer. Centennial Canoe Outfitters provides experienced guides and a fun atmosphere. That was my 5th trip with them and loved them all.

“Great fun!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

We went on the Colorado River Finnders & Youngberg float. It was a fabulous time. Great company, scenery, accommodations and fabulous music by Finnders & Youngberg (and a few of the guides were musically skilled as well!).

There was enough gear for everyone. The gear was in good shape. The information sheet that was sent to me via e-mail was all the info. I needed.

The guides were friendly and diligent. We had one canoe flop in our group and our guides were there in a split second to take care of the situation. Erin, Levi & Richard did a fabulous job of accommodating everyone with meals and information.

One comment I have is that the food was average. Not that I was expecting gourmet meals 3 times a day. BUT..... After floating on the river, hiking the trails and playing in the water I was glad to hear the kitchen call no matter what was on the menu.

I highly recommend Centennial Canoe Outfitters. I had a fabulous time and will definitely sign up for next year's Music Float!!!

“Perfect Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

The best part of the entire trip was the guides.
The location was beautiful - plenty of things to do, food was great. But the guides are what made it better than expected.

“Awesome Adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

We did the 3 day Gunnison River trip with friends. It was a blast! Beautiful scenery, fun paddling, water gun wars, great food, and plenty of good old-fashioned outdoor fun. Highly recommend this experience and will go on more trips with them in the future!

Hello JennCO,
Glad you had some good old-fashioned outdoor fun. Sometimes our lives get so busy with work & family we don't take time for the really important things like getting outdoors in nature & creating new memories. We look forward to seeing you back out on the river for another adventure.
