The meeting point is located just south of Buena Vista, and north of Salida. Check in at 8:45AM with Noah's Ark's talented and friendly staff! Your rafting trip leader will talk you through what to wear, where to be and what to expect. After your “TL” gives you a whitewater rafting safety talk, life jackets, helmets and a guide, you will hop on the river, paddle some of Colorado's best class III and III+ whitewater, and eat lunch in the Browns Canyon National Monument! A bus will pick you up 16 miles downstream and bring you back to the original departure point, where you will dry off and head out!

Noah's Ark Colorado Rafting & Aerial Adventure Park
Browns Canyon National Monument
Raft through Browns Canyon National Monument and experience the fun and excitement of Colorado's #1 stretch of whitewater. This full day small group trip extends 16 miles and the fun of the half-day Browns Canyon trip (10 miles). Typically, you will be on the river approximately 4-5 hours (varies with water levels), including lunch. Lunch in Browns Canyon features delicious deli-style sandwiches, fruit, homemade breads and fresh-baked cookies. After lunch it's back to the river, where an afternoon of rapids, including the infamous Seidel's Suckhole and drenching waves of Twin Falls, await. A must do on your Colorado Adventure Vacation!  Please note:   A PRIVATE BOAT IS NOT GUARANTEED. YOU MAY BE GROUPED WITH OTHER GUESTS.

This was our first time whitewater rafting and we had an awesome trip thanks to our guide Pierce. He did a great job maneuvering us through the rapids even though the water was low. Highly recommend Noah’s Ark! The three other guides in our group...More
