Our float trip was amazing. It was relaxing, informative, educational, and the scenery was incredible. Jesse was the perfect guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable, engaging, and easy to talk to. My wife and I are glad we took the ride. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

Punctual boat trip in good raft with competent guide. Quiet drive as expected with short hike to petrified trees. Due to the low water level in the Colorado, we got out at times to drag the town over a sandbar in knee-deep water.
