"I took my very apprehensive mother in law and my wife and our 3 kids down the river with Zach. His knowledge of the area, including bird calls and river jokes, added immensely to our experience. The river was beautiful, the staff was friendly, and my family had an awesome experience. The owner and the office staff were equally outstanding and hospitable. I would highly recommend this company over the other options in the area!! Thank you Southwest Whitewater."

"The guides are the friendliest on the river. The are conveniently located in town and they include all the gear that you need to have a great time. I would go with them again."

"Our family of 4 decided to try rafting for the first time, so we went on the 2 hour afternoon rafting trip. Rory, the owner, was very patient in explaining everything and our guide, Ti was great. The river was pretty calm for this time of year but we did experience some Class 2 and 3 rapids along the way. They also offer other packages and solo kayaking. We enjoyed this memorable awesome experience, highly recommend!"

"Great company! We rented 5 kayaks for the day. The staff was extremely helpful with advice and maps. It was very affordable and included helmets and PFDs. One of our group decided not to do it and even though we had the Kayak for the day they credited it back and I didn't even ask. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking for guided trips or to those who want to rent and do their own thing."

"We did a raft trip on the lower Animas with Emily and had a blast. She made the trip super fun and she had tons of knowledge about the area. She could maneuver the boat to increase or decrease the splash factor, this was great when my wife started to get cold. I would use this company the next time I want to make a rafting trip."
