The guides at Santa Fe Rafting Co are friendly and hard working to make customers feel safe, comfortable and well taken care of the whole day. Mr. Guide Adams was a knowledgable and passionate trip leader.

This is very fun, but still cold in April because the water is melted snow. It was 1-3 rapids and not bad for beginners.

My Mom just informed me we paid $65/person because no reservation. I think normal is $45, but they allow you to book on their website. We weren't really sure we were going until morning. Kids are unpredictable.

Hi, I would like to know if you conduct trips around Sept 21-24th and how much water is expected, i.e., is it still part of the season? What would be included in the trip for two. What is the cost? We are staying at the La Posada de Santa Fe.
