About
The Royal Gorge is one of the most thrilling and exciting whitewater rafting trips on the Arkansas River. Enjoy the beauty and thrill of God’s creation as you experience 1,000 foot high canyon walls, confront exciting Class IV-V rapids, and see the famous Royal Gorge Bridge. The Royal Gorge is a serious section of river facing Class III-V Rapids, and a half-day trip is not a suitable introduction for beginners. Previous class III or higher paddling experience and strong swimming ability are recommended for all guests. For the safety of our guests and guides, we cannot take guests who are over 250lbs or individuals with a history of heart or serious medical problems. Journey Quest is a non-profit Christ-centered rafting ministry, and these trip are uplifting, family-friendly adventures. You’ll love the scenery, the experience, and the intentional ministry led by our guides on this Colorado whitewater rafting adventure.

Morning Gorge Run
Aug. 2021
We had the most fantastic experience! All of the staff were nice, friendly, and helpful! Our guide, Emmaline was also fantastic. We had a great group that totally rocked the Gorge! We can not wait to come back and float the high water! Cheers until then, friends. I apologize I misspelled our guides name…….

Great trip! Super fun for our family of 4 w/2 teens. mOir guide Kenny was great - he kept us upright through the rapids, taught us a thing of two about rafting, and is a really nice guy.

We had a thrilling time with Steve rafting beautiful Royal Gorge! With two parents and two teenagers, the challenge level was just right for us. Steve did a great job guiding us, and we enjoyed the fellowship on the River!

Great and professional experience
Jul. 2021
Very competent and friendly rafting company. I have rafted the Royal George five times throughout my lifetime, and this is by far the best company I have gone with. They add a personal and individualized touch. You are not crowded into big buses with hundreds of people for each trip. Furthermore, I felt the most safe with these guides than any others. Mark has over 30 years experience! Will definitely be going back.

Great half day trip !!!!
Jun. 2021
Our guide Bracey was very good and personable. Our party of 6 had a great trip, our youngest member was 10 years old and it was his first rafting trip. Remarkably he managed to stay in the raft the entire trip. My daughter's family was visiting from Las Vegas, they had rafted on the Colorado River on a previous trip, but this raft trip was a better one and the weather was perfect. We were very happy that we chose Journey Quest !!!!!
