I absolutely love rafting with Noah's Ark. They are so family friendly and I don't have to worry about things getting out of control with my kids coming along. I love that they are Christian based and the prayer at the beginning of the day! The guides are all very friendly and made us feel very comfortable and safe.

My family chose this company on a short weekend away in Colorado and we are so glad that we did! We chose to do the full day rafting trip on the Arkansas River, starting at their headquarters near Buena Vista. The guides were fantastic and the equipment is in great condition. My children are 10 and 6 and they had... More

Our Family chose Noah's Ark for our rafting trip during our Colorado Summer Vacation. It was, by far, the best excursion we had the entire trip. Our guide, Logan, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He made our trip very comfortable. We did a full day and stopped for lunch, which was very good. (Especially the brownies). We have two girls... More

We were down from Canada just over a week ago for a friend's wedding and went rafting as a group. It was lots of fun! We had Dan as our guide. Dan was informative, entertaining and showed interest in each member of our group. The water volume was low in the river, but Dan showed his skill and experience in... More

My husband & I recently took our 10 year old grandson for his very first raft experience. Alex made sure to make him feel confident & capable. It was a fantastic trip & we all had fun!

We did a company rafting trip and had 3 rafts. Our guide was Anna Larrabee. We had a great time. Anna talked to us throughout the trip with fun facts (and maybe a few tall tales) and was pleasant. She took care of us and calmed the fears for a few who were a little nervous about the trip. I... More

The rafting is great fun for families. It's Noah's Ark's PEOPLE that make the difference. They're all smiles, greetings, manners and warmth. They like what they do, like each other and they really like their customers, too. Great role models for impressionable kids. Our guide, Dan G, teaches middle school history all winter--but he has worked at Noah's Ark the... More

#1 rule: Have Fun IN The Boat!! Anna was a truly talented raft guide. With several first time rafters in in the boat, it was important for her to navigate the level 1-3 Rapids with expert ease and smiles. We much appreciated the entertaining bus ride back too. All the staff at Noah's Ark helped to make a fantastic family... More
