So much fun! My teenager and I loved rafting Browns Canyon.

My son and I had a great time, and plan to go back this Summer. Spectacular scenery and huge smiles all day!

We took our teen-age grandchildren on a River Rafting Trip with Dvorak Rafting. Our guide was funny and very entertaining. On the other hand he was very serious about keeping us out of danger and an excellent and professional guide who stood at the back of the boat deftly guiding our raft while giving clear instruction to those of us...

Inflatable kayaks are such a great way to get in touch with the river on a personal level. Always great to hear stories like this. Thanks for your kind words. We hope that we get to show you some more rivers and sections again soon. More

Went Whitewater Rafting with this company back in July - what appeared to be peak summer season. We had many options to choose from, but went with Dvorak based on a friend's recommendation. The staff was extremely accommodating as they got everyone fitted for their safety gear. During the ride over they went over the safety tips and genuinely wanted... More

I booked a guided raft fishing trip for my husband and Special needs daughter while we were vacationing in Co. in July. They both LOVE to fish but this was their first time fishing from a raft. They both had an awesome time on the river. Their guide was very friendly and helpful, and very accepting of our sweet girl.... More

When we retired and moved to Salida we were told Dvorak's was the only rafting company to book with. Bill Dvorak has done so much to protect the beautiful waters of Colorado that It just feels good to support him. We completed our third trip down Brown's Canyon with Gabby today. What an awesome run with our awesome local guide... More

We did the fly fishing float trip and next day rafting in Browns canyon combo. The Arkansas is a beautiful river and we have floated it before. For the fishing they took us up river which was different. We floated through the dam and through town which was fun. My boat, with Bill in it caught fish, the other didn't... More

What a treat to fish with Old Man River himself. Please give a call the next time you need to book an adventure and feel free to ask as many questions as you like.
