What Our Guests Are Saying
Rafting with a Purpose
Like all our trips, the purpose is much more than just white water rafting. 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. On this full-day trip, we seek to share the transformational power of the living Gospel with all of our guests using spiritual analogies, personal testimonies, and thought provoking questions. This trip is perfect for those looking to grow in a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ while experiencing the beauty and thrill of God’s Creation. Our guides look to be an example of what a disciple of Christ looks like by proclaiming the truth of the Bible, showing love towards one another, and praying with you during your trip.

Navigate iconic rapids such as Three Rocks, Spikebuck, and Shark’s Tooth as great warm-up for the thrill of the afternoon.

After a couple hours on the river, enjoy a delicious riverside lunch with your guide and crew.
After lunch, the adventure continues as the canyon narrows and the rock walls tower 1,000 feet above you. As you hit the continuous world-class whitewater rafting, don’t forget to look up and see the infamous Royal Gorge Bridge. You will encounter adrenaline-pumping Class IV-V rapids such as Sunshine Falls, Sledgehammer, Wallslammer, and the Narrows while breathtaking scenery surrounds you on this incredible Colorado Rafting adventure.
