Our experienced guides pilot 16’ rafts capable of carrying 8 guests through roughly 6 miles of beautiful scenery. The most exciting rapid, South Canyon, can be up to class III during June runoff. After about 1.5hrs of float time, it’s just a 12 minute shuttle ride back home, making this the perfect primer to river experiences. Launch site and take out are subject to change due to water conditions but will always contain scenic views and a beautiful Class II float. Class Rating: Class II, on the Colorado River, 6+ river miles, departs from our riverfront facility. Age/Weight: Minimum age 2, no minimum weight, max weight 375lbs. Meeting place: All trips meet at our location in Glenwood Springs, CO, which is about 2.75 hours from DIA, 1 hour from Vail and 1.25 hours from Aspen.

The Right Choice
Whitewater Rafting was our first and only choice when we decided to take family from the Philippines rafting. Since this was their first time rafting, and we also had my eleven year old son, safety and expertise was my big concern. JC assured me that we would be well taken care of without compromising the fun of whitewater rafting. A lot of things about Whitewater Rafting stood out. The boathouse was conveniently close to our hotel, the staff was incredibly friendly, and top notch merch for sale.

On our trip down the river, we were very lucky to have EP as our guide. Don’t let EP’s southern belle charm and drawl fool you, she is one tough lady on those rapids. I give her half of the credit for making our experience that day. Aside from taking us down river, she entertained us with games, jokes, trivia and facts about the Colorado River and Glenwood Canyon/Springs. She dared us do stunts that made the rafting experience more exciting. Her confidence and expertise on the raft made us feel safe and we trusted her. Overall, it was a great time for me and my family. Thanks to Whitewater Rafting!

PS, don’t forget to get the photo package. It is worth it.

Outstanding first rafting trip with Whitewater rafting
Aug 2020
Bob was an outstanding and very experienced guide with a lot of humor!!! He gave us all the right instructions, and we had so much fun!! A gentle start, a little bit of practice and off we went into the rapids! One after the other, all are individual as for the waves and splashes, with calm minutes in between- we had such an awesome time!! Very well with the money, and a safe procedure for your car key at the office. Very friendly and highly motivated staff!!!!

Fun, easy rafting trip
Aug 2020
We had a great time on our rafting trip. Nate was our guide and did a terrific job of keeping everyone engaged and giving us info about the area. It's definitely not a wild rapids ride and that's exactly what I was looking for. My 8 and 11 yo niece and nephew had a great time and enjoyed getting out of the raft to cool off. Thanks again Nate for a terrific time.

Great trip for first timers!
Jun 2020
We had a great time. Excellent service from Whitewater Rafting LLC. This was our son's first white-water rapid trip and we wanted him to enjoy the experience and look forward to rafting again in the future. This trip accomplished what we wanted. Our son loved the trip, and so did we. It has three sections of mild rapids. Just enough to find out if you like white-water rafting! Oh, the views were great also!

Bob was great! We enjoyed having him as our guide. The float was really enjoyable and the rapids nicely paced. We had a lot of first timers rafting and everyone left happy! Even the 4 year old.

Have been rafting before with this company and it's why we keep coming back. We only had a few hours before had to head to Denver so took the short trip. Kennedy was our guide and he was simply outstanding!

Great family activity
Our family 2 adults and 2 teenagers did the short trip with level 3 rapids. I am not a strong swimmer and was terrified for weeks, and vacationing with all boys, all very athletic. 😓 Our guide was extremely nice, very reassuring and knowledgeable about not only rafting but everything we were seeing along the way. I was still terrified, that's me, with the terrified face, also I had a great time! We all had a great time and I was even excited about doing it in the future, and also trying kayaking after all the things we talked about with our guide. Will definitely be back in the future. We recommend to families children even younger. The whole staff was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Wear: swimwear or fast drying clothes, water shoes, hat, sunglasses, and sunblock. EVERYTHING gets wet! You can bring drinks in a cooler but a water bottle is enough.

Great Newbie Experience
Jul 2020
This was a great experience. Neither my wife nor I had ever been rafting before. Halie was our guide and was friendly and pointed out to us some really interesting features. There were enough rapids to get a little wet, but nothing too crazy, which was perfect for 50+ first-timers. The scenery is beautiful and we were treated to a Bald Eagle sighting. I would recommend this to anyone who has never rafted before and anyone with children. We'll be back again!

Wonderful experience thanks to the best guide!
Jul 2020 • Family
Absolutely amazing. Our guide, Kai, was extremely knowledgeable and charming. The adventure wouldn’t have been as magnificent without him! We had the most wonderful time learning about the area and enjoying the views. My family has previously been rafting and this experience blew it away! We felt safe and never anxious for the entirety of the trip. 10/10 would recommend (11/10 if you go with Kai)!!
