Private Raft Trips
- Rafts Each raft holds up to 8 people
Create the Perfect Private Whitewater Rafting Trip in Colorado!
Private shuttles, private rafts, and custom launch times are available, paired perfectly with our top guides. Raft exclusively with your own party, from arrival at our building to the end of the day, to make your day intimate and special. For our guests who like to avoid the crowds or want a more intimate river experience, we can customize your trip on the Colorado or Roaring Fork Rivers to avoid public encounters or offer your group a private experience. These trips help keep a family reunion family only, a bachelor party private (did we mention alcohol is allowed), or make a special day with loved ones extra special.
These premium priced private trips are each customized to the group and no two are the same. Our private trips can include a few or all of the following:
- Private launch time to avoid the crowds and create a more intimate experience
- Private shuttle with only your group on board keeping it cozy from start to finish
- Private raft(s) with one of our most senior and most requested guides
- Custom routes on the river to suit your group
- Upgraded catered lunch, pre-stocked coolers, inflatable kayaks and many other custom options are available
Whether you want a private raft, a private trip, or an entirely private facility, we can cater to your needs. Please let us know how we can create the best private river experience for you! Private Raft Trips are offered on a per raft basis, with each raft holding a maximum of 8 guests. Catering, inflatable kayaks, etc are additional charges.
We provide all safety equipment and necessary gear including life jackets/PFDs and helmets. We recommend guests bring the following items to maximize their fun:
- Shorts or Swimsuits (Light nylon clothing is best as everything gets wet!)
- Old Tennis Shoes, sandals, or water shoes (Flip Flops not recommended as they float away!)
- Windbreaker or Fleece (if cool)
- Sunscreen/Lip balm
- Water Bottle
- Change of clothes (for after your trip)
- Towel (to take a warm shower at our riverside facility after your trip before hopping back in the car)
Full wetsuits, booties, splash jackets, and all other supplies are available in our gift shop for rent or purchase at very reasonable prices. DO NOT BRING any electronics such as smart phones, digital cameras, car keys or anything you would not want to get wet. These items have a tendency to be taken into the depths of the mighty Colorado! Please leave these items in your car and we will be happy to hold your car keys while you enjoy your trip!
