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

“Excellent for Youth Groups!”
Erica D
Via TripAdvisor
“The youth group I work with has gone rafting with Journey quest multiple times as a cap-off to a week of missions outreach. Not only is it a fun and exciting time of bonding, but it is so refreshing to hear your guide talk about the beauty of God's creation like a real, down-to-earth, and fun-loving person. All the guides I've met are very skilled at teaching, encouraging, and leading their rafting crew, which puts even those who are a bit squeamish about the endeavor at ease.” Read Full Review

“Fantastic, fun, faith-built company!”
Brian S
Des Moines, Iowa
“We did the full day trip through the Bighorn Sheep Canyon and Royal Gorge on our honeymoon, and absolutely loved it...Nicki, our guide was absolutely amazing... personable, friendly, knowledgeable and in control, and did a great job of making the trip safe and fun for everybody. It was refreshing to be with other believers. You could see the love of Christ in the staff members faces, and they were unashamed of Christ, but definitely not pushy with their faith...We had the ride of our lives, and if we're ever back in that area again, we'll definitely be re-booking with Journey Quest! ” Read Full Review
“Great Experience for my Family with Young Kids”
RyanDavis21
Vinton, Iowa
“Awesome experience. I have four kids ages 11 through 5 and I wanted to find something that even our 5 year old could do but that would also be exciting for the adults. This was perfect...Our guide, Mark, has young kids of his own so he knew how to give us an experience that was safe but very exciting. We did the 3/4 Day and it was the highlight of our vacation to Colorado. When we come back I will definitely book again with this company.” Read Full Review

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.
