Fun, friendly, family oriented whitewater rafting trips. Our guides have a minimum of five years of guiding experience and although you are on vacation "safety doesn't take a vacation". You meet us at our convenient location on river, the same location since 1982! We are the longest family owned and operated whitewater rafting company in Southwest Colorado. Trips depart throughout the day and are a perfect way to cool down after a hot hike in Mesa Verde or a thrilling splash after enjoying a walk through historic downtown Durango. You may have seen town from riding on the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad train now get a totally different perspective. Parking is free and secure and RV parking is available. When the snow is gone and the water level in the river drops we pull out specially designed river tubes, tubing is a local favorite.Come to have fun and dress to get wet!

We had a great time and enjoyed our experience with Flexible Flyers. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. We had a group of 31 and they accommodated us very well. Most of the group this was their first time and they kept safety first. At first I didn't realize the meeting place is right off the river in a public... More

My husband and I went on a 2 hour rafting trip with our son (6 years old). We have never been before and it was perfect for our family. The length was just right for our son. Any longer and it may have been an issue, any shorter and it would have been too short. The price is very reasonable.... More

Our family had never rafted before and we selected Flexible Flyers after evaluating several different rafting operations in Durango. Flexible Flyers was one of the most reasonably priced and we had a great experience. We made reservations online a month in advance and those were promptly confirmed. It turned out we had to change our date about two weeks before... More

I highly recommend using Flexible Flyers!! When you book your trip ask for Kjristen Territ. I've been all over Colorado and she by far was and has been guide I've ever had. Hands down we will be coming back and will be requesting her as our guide.

I prefer going to smaller businesses instead of the bigger ones because I usually have a better experience. These guys were just great. We met them on the side of the road and they took us up river by bus and then we enjoyed a two-hour float down the Animas river. Kat was a great guide who really gave us... More

We did the two-hour trip with our 4-year-old and she loved it. The guide was very nice and made it easy. The river is FREEZING to swim in but beautiful to raft. We were there in low waters so it was only about a 2.5 where we went (lower Animas I think).

Per my research, this is one of the few companies in Durango that has a short "mild" raft ride. My husband and I didn't want to spend a long time on a raft trip or go on one that was too "wild" so we chose the Historic Durango 1 hour trip. It was great! Kat, our guide, was good and... More
