Rafting Tour
This was a fun way to spend the afternoon - floating the Lower Salt River. It is very peaceful and scenic. We hit the jackpot when it came to spotting the wild horses - they were all over the river! We floated right by some of them - such a beautiful sight. Alexis, our guide, was very informative and entertaining so we had a ton of fun!

A peaceful quiet ride into nature

Half-Day Lower Salt River Rafting Tour
We encountered several wild horses in the river...Very special sighting. This is a low keyed quiet tour into nature so expectations should be just that. We enjoyed the tour. It could have been improved in two ways, Our guide might have given more narrative about the flora and fauna along the river or the history of the area we were paddling through. The meeting place was recently changed and the instructions should be more explicit, There were two similar parking lots side by side and the van was just white with no identifying markings or signs.

BEST Rafting Trip Ever!

Classic Salt River Raft Trip
Flynn was our guide and we had the best time ever. All of the crew was incredible knowledgeable. Marcus, Ellis and James were all very much a team. We learned so much and were excited for them as they anticipated a significant rainfall in the coming days which would change their whole outlook. We have and will continue to recommend to anyone travelling or living in Arizona! Best trip every!

Half-Day Lower Salt River Rafting Tour
Who knew there’d be wild horses in the area! It’s always an experience to see wildlife in its natural habitat; one horse was wading across the river - neck deep! This was a low key rafting experience. Excellent guide who did most of the work; we paddled a bit but mostly floated the way down the river encountering a few “surging” areas. For my 15- and 17-year olds, this was not an adventure they’d do again. BUT seeing the wild horses made up the lack of “fun”. For us parents (in our 40s) this was a nice easy morning in the 100+ degree heat of June. Tour provided water and snacks. Guide was informative and fun to talk to.

During the season when the Salt River flows slowly, it was a pleasure to be with Eric and Matt for a leisurely morning on this picturesque river!

Fun relaxing float. Family enjoyed it! Wish we would have stopped at a beach to swim. The rock we swam at was hard to get in and out of the water.

Guide was good and weather beautiful. I had hoped to see wild horses but wasn’t in the cards for us and my teens a bit bored but I enjoyed the serenity of it all.

The guides were excellent, knowledgeable and very personable. The ride itself was peaceful and a lot of fun. The only problem was getting in and out of the boat. The sides of the river were extremely muddy, especially at the spot we got out. Lots of slipping and sliding trying to get on shore. I do however do understand there had been rain and a water release though.
