Rafting!

We are fortunate to enjoy the expertise and adventure offered by three excellent rafting companies, each of which provides fabulous fun, adventure, and something unique.

 

Raft on Colorado’s Best River, Cache La Poudre River with Mountain Whitewater Descents where they are enjoying a fabulous early season. With the river still in high water, you are sure to enjoy a great fast ride! While spring runoff keeps the river running fast and high, their minimum age for rafters is 13. Once the waters calm and lower a bit (until about June 20th) almost everyone can raft! They have lots of gear to keep you warm and safe (no promises about keeping dry) and as always, a safety boater will be with you on every high-water trip.  After your tour, sip an icy Colorado Micro-brew at their Paddler’s Pub.

 

 

The folks at Mountain Whitewater are very passionate about their business and your enjoyment. They put a lot of heart and soul into making sure your ride is a safe, thrilling adventure. Experience why they are different!

Experienced and first-time rafters alike will enjoy a great time on the morning or afternoon half day trip on the Cache La Poudre or spend the whole day on the Colorado River.  All Rapid Transit Rafting guides are professionals who surpass the state requirements with extensive training in first aid, river rescue and CPR.   Each trip starts with a rafting orientation and safety presentation. Rapid Transit is fully insured and licensed by the state of Colorado and has one of the best safety records in the state.  With that in mind, remember please, children must be both – at least 7 years old and weight at least 50 pounds to ensure the correct fit of proper safety equipment.  Rapid Transit does all the driving too!  You meet up at Estes Park High School (5 minutes from Boulder Brook’s Front Door) load up, sit back, relax and let the experts drive while you enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife between Estes and your final, rafting destination.
