Actually pretty peaceful experience but this is because the guide was so skillful. He makes it look so easy. They were kind and very concerned about the experience for us.

We took our 3 children, ages 13-6, who had never been rafting before. They loved it. The rapids were quiet this time of year, but the guide was a local and was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

We had a great time rafting the Rio Grande. The water was perfect, not too rough, but enough rapids to make it fun and get wet. Our guide, Rye, was awesome. He was extremely knowledgable about the area (having grown up in Creede), pointed out...More
