COLORADO RAFTING TRIPS
Colorado Rafting Tours offers several rafting trips to suit most ages and abilities. If you are looking for a more relaxed tour with less demanding whitewater, we offer the whitewater rafting along the Bighorn Sheep Canyon. The Bighorn Sheep Canyon provides plenty of excitement but isn't as demanding as the higher class white water of the Royal Gorge. The Royal Gorge is a more demanding stretch of whitewater that challenges most paddlers experienced or first-timers looking for a greater thrill. Allow us to find the ideal trip for your group, whether you're planning an all ages trip and your looking for family-friendly whitewater or if you are planning a memorable and adventurous bachelor party or the perfect company, corporate outing.

OUR WHITEWATER RAFTS & RIVER GEAR
On your adventure, all of the river gear is being provided free of charge. This is more than a perk. It is often gear that would be necessary to keep you comfortable on the river. We provide wet suits, river boots (we encourage you to bring a familiar pair of your own sneakers you don't mind getting wet though) splash jackets, PDF, paddles, and helmets.
The Rafts we use are State Of The Art Rafts - Literally - The Brand Sotar is an acronym for just that. These rafts are military grade high-performance rafts that are the raft of choice by professionals paddles the world over. Sotar rafts are extremely rigid as they are made out of a PVC material and not rubber. Rubber can flex a lot more. Maybe you have heard the term "taco" before? That is when a raft bends so much it resembles a taco and when this happens, and on the recoil, the tomatoes, lettuce, and chicken or beef end up in the river. We prefer our taco's after rafting, and we prefer you to stay in the boat.
WHITEWATER RAFTING ORIENTATION
Upon arrival at Colorado Adventure Tours - Royal Gorge Adventure Beach, Our guides will spell out all of the important information via a pre-trip orientation before you get your adventure underway. They will teach you how to paddle efficiently, explain the various commands they will be using, and will go over a few swimming techniques for you should you end up on an unexpected swim. It is typical that your guide will do a play by play of the entire pre-trip orientation on the raft.
