3 day trip to Escalante/Dominguez Canyons with historian

The beauty of the canyons was mind boggling. Camping in Dominguez Canyon with dinner served under the shade of the cottonwood tree, outstanding.

We rented canoes for a private trip through Centennial. The detailed service we received for put in and take out was spectacular! We had a great day for weather and the advice offered for a safe navigation down the Gunnison made the day memorable. We are looking forward to a return trip next summer!

We had a wonderful time on the trip and Centennial was great as always. We have used them for several trips over many years and never have issues. Our group of 20 did a five day canoe/camping trip on the Gunnison River. Our guides Greg, Jill, and Max did an awesome job, not only in the coordination/guiding, but also in... More

Spent 3 days on the Colorado River from Loma into Westwater. The guides were absolutely amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better trip. The food was generous and delicious. Plenty of water and also plenty of wine! The lessons were helpful and the guides were always talking us through more challenging scenarios as they came up. I was... More

Heather7177, We get repeated positive comments on our guides and glad to know you are also in agreement. They are a big reason for the success of our company. And yes, it is much easier to go on a guided, outfitted trip rather than trying to put it all together yourself. Hope to see you back on a different river.... More

We did a 3-day trip on the Gunnison River with them, and I would have no problem recommending them to other folks. The guides were experienced, quite friendly and very approachable, and seemed to be concerned about everyone having a good time.

We had a great time! Just wanted to thank you for all your advice and recommendations. We did nearly miss the asparagus campsite - I did not pay close enough attention to your description of it being "just" after the rapids. The mosquitos at Pleasure Park were overwhelming. We were under attack from the moment we opened the car on... More

Excellent food, excellent equipment, excellent people. We recommend them highly. Although the paddling is not too arduous, but there were times when we had to pay attention and paddle hard. Fun!

We had never done a multi-day trip before and were glad we chose Centennial Canoe. Mike, Sauna and Chris were wonderful guides and hosts and my wife and I enjoyed every minute (except for camping in the mud.....our mistake!)
