This is our second trip with Quiet Waters. Both in November celebrating my birthday. Always a respite from the real world. So close to home and so very far from away from the ordinary! Soothes ones soul, quiets the mind and reconnects us with nature....More

Q.W.P.A. was a phenomenal experience. I will always repeat this majestic adventure with Q.W.P.A. when I return to New Mexico. The company management has great spirit and positive energy. Fortunately the weather was awesome too, the cottonwoods were in their Autumnal "Golden Attire"!

Our guide, Kia, was great and the fall colors were beautiful. It was a perfect afternoon and the best way to see the fall foliage!

Beautiful trip with our group. The guide was knowledgeable and engaging. Highly recommend the guided tour for beginners. There were small bits of excitement along the way but overall the river trip was mostly serene and relaxing.Will definitely go again.

This was the first time my wife had done this type of canoeing and she loved it. The river was not as scenic as I am used to; but, since my wife enjoyed it very much, I enjoyed it very much.

The staff were amazing and we were blessed with an absolute perfect display of balloons during the paddle. I would choose this business again in the future, no hesitation. Best experience ever.
