We have a superb safety record and were designated the Region III regional trainer for Swiftwater and Whitewater Rescue Training in 2003. We truly love leading trips into the wilderness of the “wild west”, where you can discover the beauty of canyon vistas, alpine landscapes and wildlife in its natural habitat while we cook up a little “river magic”, the special friendships that form between those who join us on one of our whitewater adventures.
