My husband and I were first-time rafters but haved paddled, so we were looking for something challenging but doable. Noah's took us on class 3+ to 4 rapids and it was fantastic. We did an all-day trip with Weston as our guide in a combo boat with four others, and we had a blast. Lunch was filling and delicious, the... More

My two teenage kids and my 77 year old dad joined me on the 1/2 day trip, and it was fun for all. Our guide, Devin, was THE BEST! Will do the full day next time.

What an amazing trip! It all started with my first phone call to determine what group I wanted to use. The staff at Noah's are all very knowledgeable, friendly and skilled. After I made my choice the experience just continued to be positive and reassuring. I was a first time rafter so I was nervous but chose the all day... More

It was fun and exciting ! Very organized and our guide Jack Sentz was the best. He was friendly and pointed out things along the trip so we wouldn't miss a thing. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Noah's Ark rocks !!!!!!!

We are a group of seven women who travel together every summer. We chose a half day rafting adventure through Brown's Canyon. Daniel was our guide and he was amazing. Most of us are teachers and he was so friendly and interested in each of us. He also kept us safe on the river and I'm sure he was working... More

My sons and I, and a family friend recently went whitewater rafting for the first time at Noah's Ark Rafting & Aerial Adventure Park. The entire experience was wonderful from start to finish. It is a very well run park. All of the employees were knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Getting 50+ rafters ready for the trip would be difficult but... More

This was our family's second trip with Noah's Ark. We took the 1/2 day trip down Brown's Canyon with another group of friends. It was a great experience from start to finish. The 1/2 day trip has about 5 miles of rather calm water (class 1 rapids) and about 5 miles of thrills (class 3). It is a great trip... More

TONS of laughter on our raft down the river and on the Bus ride back to the shop! Highly professional guides (Carter and Rob) and an overall highlight of our weekend! I have been on many whitewater rafting trips and NoahsArk was by far the most fun and memorable-can't wait to go back and try the Adventure Park!
