It's a shame I'm just now getting around to writing this review. I visited in September 2015 and me and my partner were actually able to get spots on their last run for the season. It was my first time ever going white water rafting and I must say I had a fantastic time. Laura, the owner, is so nice... More

My family of 4 went on the beginner's trip today and had an absolute blast! This was the first time rafting for all of us, so we were a bit nervous beforehand. After our guide, Kyle, went over safety with us we felt much better about our trip. There were a few rapids, but nothing too scary! It was so... More

River levels change, we thought it would be ok for beginners. Everyone in our boat was catapulted out, one lady broken ribs, one lady bruises across 80%, one lady tumbled through the rocks for 300/400 feet, ended up taking her to hospital for second drowning, that night. Never even heard of second drowning, had the owners informed us this was... More

Hi Ron, We’re sorry you had an unsatisfactory experience on our Clear Creek Express. Rafting is an inherently dangerous sport. This is why we give very thorough safety and paddle instructions, to both minimize the chance of ending up out of your boat and maximize your options if you do. Additionally, we work very hard at explaining the risks to... More

We visited from Cleveland, Ohio and had an absolute blast. We were looking for something in the beginner to intermediate range and got the perfect ride which was both exciting and doable for newbies. We were provided wet suits which was fantastic as the water was only 40 degrees. Sarah was an amazing guide who not only gave clear instructions,... More

I visited from Dallas, Texas and had the most amazing time with this rafting company. If possible, ask for Sarah! She is a tiny, 120lb ex rugby player who could whip any guys butt!

For a good smile, ask for Kyle. For my wife and I, this was our first rafting experience. We went with the intermediate, class 3 and 4. The water was good, the staff was friendly, accomadating, and super funny. The rapids were amazing, just enough excitement mixed with movement through the beautiful mountains. Call in advance. Clearly the best outfit,... More

We did a half day class 4 rafting adventure with Sara as our guide down Clear Creek. Water flow was at 800 cfm which is great! We got soaked over and over! Sara knew her sh..t and was funny to boot. Highly recommend, a must do with All American Adventures. Thanks for a great time! We loved it!
