We have 2 petite girls (4 & 7 yrs old) and Nate gave us great advice on whether to have the girls swim test for the bigger rapids (he walked... More

We are a family with 5 kids and we had looked at other companies before scheduling. This is definitely the best and most affordable. Kids under 8 raft free! We did the 4 hr trip. And lunch was included in the deal. Our guide Nate did a great job engaging with all the kids.

When I booked this trip I didn't know which rafting company would be better than others and I'm so glad I went with DRS. Friendly and expert guides and a focus on fun. We might even skip our other plans to do this again!

We had a great time with Nate, our tour guide. Loved how they swim tested the kids so they could go through the main Rapids. The kids loved it! The serious barbecue lunch midway was great, and swimming in the river was fun as well. We all had a fantastic time!

The White water rafting you imagine is thrilling and exciting however this was pretty boring to be honest! There was 3 little sections when it was a bit bumpy but other then that it's like a little boat ride! I was just expecting more.

CJ and Hobbin led our trip down the Animas River and we loved them. They were both kind and knowledgeable and very much willing to chat. Our family of 4 came on a day when the Animas was raging a bit more than normal. We conquered the class 4 rapids guided by CJ and it was fantastic! Our two girls... More

With a group of 16, this was our first rafting experience for most of us. Regardless of their shanty check in location, we all had a blast down the Lower Animas. Taking the four hour trip, we were able to stop midway at Serious Texas BBQ for lunch which was included in the entrance fee. This was a BIG plus.... More

We just got back from a 4 hour rafting experience with Durango Rafting Company and we'll definitely go back to see them again. We had a large group: six families with a total of 12 adults and 12 kids ranging from toddler to preteen and the folks with Durango Rafting made it a great experience for all of us. The... More
