This was my first rafting trip, it was well worth it. My guide Molly made me feel safe the entire time and the rapids were a lot of fun.

Full Day on Brown's Canyon

What a GREAT Trip! Our group contained 10 people ranging in age from 17 to the mid 50's, with only 2 ever having rafted before and everyone had a fantastic time. The whole experience was great, the people at the shop got you going in the morning and were very welcoming and helpful. The Guides on the trip were OUTSTANDING! All were very outgoing and funny as we prepped our gear and took the ride on the bus over to the launch point. Once we arrived at the river, we split into our teams and went over a few more instructions and loaded up the raft. Our guide for the day (Molly) was AWESOME, super knowledgeable about the river and the surrounding areas and made everyone in the raft feel excited about it. Brown's Canyon was fun with several different Class II & III Rapid sections. there was plenty of calmer water between the rapid which was great to relax and just soak up all the great scenery. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone and I look forward to going back to tackle some Class IV rapids next time.
