Kayaking with a Purpose

As a Christ-centered Wilderness Ministry, Journey Quest strives to have a greater purpose behind all of our trips than just having fun. Our Inflatable Kayak trips are perfect for your family, friends, or youth group who are looking to grow in a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Our guides seek opportunities to use even a couple hours together on the river to share about the love and grace that is found in Jesus Christ. Whether you’re already a Christ-follower or if you’ve never come to know Him, we would love to share what He’s done in our lives and encourage you to take the next step in faith – whether that be increasing in love for Him or beginning a lifelong relationship with Jesus.

What Our Guests Are Saying

“White Water Rafting down the Arkansas River”
Anthony Godard
Willis, Texas
“Had a great time with your rafting company. Was a great time and a great value. See you again next year.” Read Full Review
“Amazing Family Adventure”
teamschwalm6
Kansas City, Missouri
“We'd been waiting to raft until our youngest could go with us. Journey Quest provided a wonderful family rafting experience for us all. We had Mark with us and our group of six, four being our kids ages 8-12. He was great throughout and being a father himself, answered all the kids' questions without a problem. It was fast-paced for the adults, but tame enough for the kids. Very experienced and professional group of guides.” Read Full Review
“Full Day Adventure – Royal Gorge Whitewater Rafting Trip”
Kfk73
Cedarburg, Wisconsin
“We went on the Full Day Adventure Royal Gorge Whitewater Rafting Trip. It was a wonderful trip and I would highly recommend it for those who love whitewater rafting. We went in August so the river was down some, but we still had great rapids and a very enjoyable trip. Our guide did an excellent job. If we lived closer we would go several times a year. The kids thought the whitewater rafting trip was the best activity we did while in Colorado.” Read Full Review
“What a great afternoon!”

“Our family thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our rafting trip with our guides, Mark and Ryan. What makes it even better is the fact that they are Christians! We spent the whole day breaking spiritual bread with some awesome men of God...and we got to navigate the waters of Royal Gorge in the process! ” Read Full Review

“It was the most amazing time we have had in a looong time! From the beginning when Mark gave the safety meeting I knew we were in good (Gods) hands! We then met our guide for the trip, Ryan is an amazing young man, and an inspiration to anyone who is lucky enough to meet him! ...There are tons of Rafting companies on the Arkansas River, but we will be back and recommending Journey Quest every time... ” Read Full Review
Inflatable Kayak Trips

Whitewater Kayaking

Inflatable Kayaks

Inflatable Kayaks, also known as Duckies, are an open-top kayak that are more stable than your traditional hard-shell kayak. These easy to maneuver crafts are perfect for beginner to advanced paddlers who want to try something new and exciting. These Inflatable Kayaks are designed to hold one to two paddlers and get you right down in the action of the rapids. Because of their low profile, even the small waves on the Arkansas River seem large, leaving you soaked after every hit. These kayaks are fun and exciting way to experience what Colorado whitewater kayaking is all about!

Kayak the Arkansas River

The variety of whitewater on the Arkansas River makes the Bighorn Sheep Canyon a perfect location for Inflatable Kayaks. With several sections of river to choose from, there is perfect whitewater kayaking for every skill level. Because of this variety, our Inflatable Kayak trips can be tailored to suite the specific skill level and desires of your group. As a beginner, be prepared to face continuous class II rapids that will leave you soaked by the end of the trip. If you’re looking for a little more adrenaline-pumping excitement, we can take experienced kayakers down a more advanced section of river, facing wet and wild Class III rapids.
