OVERVIEW

The 1/2 Day Phoenix river rafting trip provides an exciting experience for adventurous first-timers and experienced rafters. There is just enough time to warm up before you drop into the first advanced rapid on this thrilling stretch of Clear Creek river rafting! Just minutes from Denver, this continuous, steep, technical section will keep your paddle moving and your heart pounding as you crash through 8 miles of rapids such as Nomad, Phoenix Holes and Outer Limits. As you marvel at the beautiful Colorado scenery, keep a lookout for Big Horn Sheep, river otters, deer and other native wildlife that are commonly spotted on many of our Colorado whitewater rafting trips.
