2020 Update: This trip is available!
This wonderful Colorado River float trip is a gently flowing section that is inviting to all ages. You’ll encounter a few small rapids as the Colorado River winds through the Gore Range and Mountain Ranchland. This is a relaxing day with time to sunbathe, swim or just relax and enjoy the day on your Colorado River rafting trip. The Colorado float half day trip is available two departures per day. This trip departs from our Kremmling Outpost, where you will check in and load an AVA vehicle for the 30-minute drive to the Colorado River. We run from Pumphouse Recreation Area to Radium on this trip.

SHAWN DAWS (?) WAS OUR GUIDE (NOT SHANE DUFFY, SHAWN'S NAME DID NOT APPEAR ON THE LIST OF GUIDES) FOR A HALF DAY RAFTING TRIP ON TUESDAY JULY 31, 2018. WHAT AN EXCELLENT TIME WE HAD! SHAWN'S VIBRANT PERSONALITY AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE RIVER WERE RECOGNIZED BY EVERYONE ON BOARD. HE TOLD US VERY FUNNY STORIES AND ANSWERED THE NUMEROUS QUESTIONS THAT WE ASKED ABOUT THE RIVER AND SURROUNDING MOUNTAINS. AVA IS LUCK TO HAVE A GUY LIKE SHAWN AS A GUIDE. HE IS A TRUE ASSET TO YOUR ORGANIZATION. DURING OUR TRIP I WASN'T SURE HOW TO ADDRESS HIM SO I SIMPLY CALLED HIM THE "PADDLE MASTER". PLEASE LET SHAWN KNOW THAT THE SEA COWBOY LEFT HIM A TIP IN THE OFFICE. I HOPE TO COME BACK ON MY NEXT TRIP TO COLORADO. I'LL ALSO TELL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT AVA IS A TOP NOTCH ORGANIZATION WITH AN INCREDIBLE STAFF THAT ALWAYS MAKES THEIR GUESTS FEEL TERRIFIC. KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB SHAWN AND THANKS AVA FOR THE RAFTING OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME!
This was the perfect introduction to rafting for our family. Our 5 and 7 year old had a great time as well as the adults. The kids even opted to jump from the small cliff! It was an awesome family experience!
My wife, her brother and his wife, and I had a fabulous afternoon float trip with Elise (Elyssa?) on the afternoon of 8-23-18. Had a lot of laughs and a perfect raft ride - can't thank you all enough! Have already told our friends and family - even the ride up from Dillon to your place is inspiring country, and the informative conversation with Elyse on the river and in the bus was outstanding - you've got a great one in that young lady! Really appreciate the professionalism and friendliness of your whole staff - all our best!
My 11 year old son had a blast and was not bored. Originally my boyfriend and son wanted to go on a level 3-4 rapids, but you have to be at least 15 years old. They were so nicely surprised and still thought it was exciting. The supplied wetsuits and helmets were nice and they really had fun with their guide.
We took a half day trip with 10 of our family members (ages 11-79) and it was great! Elissa and Mack were fabulous guides, and made it lots of fun for us. We will go back for a full day float and possibly even the overnight rafting trip!
