My boyfriend hadn't had a Colorado experience. We loved the guide, the views. We laughed and got wet. Great time!!!

Our guide Jake was awesome! Super funny and very skilled. The mudslides had changed the Shoshone rapids from class two to clad three! Tip: bring closed toed river shoes and goggles/ sunglasses for better pictures!

A lot of fun! My husband and I went with our 3 kids ages 21, 18 and 12. Went on the half day trip, class 1-4 rapids down Colorado River. The guides are experienced, knowledgeable, and very friendly. This is an exciting and relaxing trip. Down the river in the calm area the guides let you get out of the raft and float if you would like. At the end you can purchase a flash drive with all your pictures that were taken by Blue Sky along the trip while going through the rapids for $50- worth the money to have those memories. You will need closed toe shoes or sandles with ankle straps, life jackets are provided and water shoes if you want. Best rafting trip ever!

First time rafting with my family. Everyone had a blast. Will totally go rafting again. Our guide Taylor was experienced and kept everything fun
Choose Blue Sky to raft the Colorado!

The trip was great! A nice mix between white water, floating, and a swimming hole. Our guide, Ciara, did a great job of setting expectations, guiding through rapids, and sharing the history of the canyon. We will definitely be back next summer!

Larry was very nice and funny. Made sure that we were all comfortable with the raft situation! All in all it was a great time! Would definitely do it again
Michel_J, Jul 2020
We had a great time! All of this despite that fact that we saw about 5 minutes of sun on the trip. Murphy was AMAZING! He kept it interesting when the rapids were a bit slower plus some boat to boat competition made it fun. Highly recommend!
