  • Highly recommend this company!!! We took our family of 5 rafting yesterday and we had the best guide, Dakota! She was extremely knowledgeable and encouraging! She gave us a lot of background and details about the river and the scenery as we went. She made it a very memorable first trip for our kids! If you are looking for a smaller company that wants to make it a personal experience for you and not just consider you another number of the Day, then Independent Whitewater is your best guide service! Plus you get a few more rapids than the other companies which is a nice bonus! Thank you Independent Whitewater for such an awesome day!
  • Great trip and gift from the mother in law. Would like to go again. Our guide was great gave us a lot of fun facts and history. Something id like to do again very soon.
