  • We took the guided kayak tour today during the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. We got there early in the morning and were on the river by 7AM. They provided hot drinks and a light breakfast before we headed o...  read more »
  • This place is great! The owner and workers take pride in their work and your safety. I rented four kayaks to take down the Rio Grande and the excursion was perfect. They did all the heavy lifting, I j...  read more »
  • Having lived in the northeast for may years, owning a kayak, and having access to water, I recently went through a "need to get back on the water" here in my new home in the high desert. I found Quiet...  read more »
  • Wonderful guided tour. Isaac was the best guide with my kids. We did the Bosque route for three hours. Best money we spent all weekend in Albuquerque. We floated at high flows during June. The other assistant, Kenny, was great too. He was chatting up my kids and really did a great job fitting them in life vests. We loved it and will be back. The guide was worth all the extra money, which was a step up in price from self guided tours. Lunch rocked also!!
  • We went twice. On our second trip a few of my friends arrived late and the employee there( older guy) started yelling at me at the top of his lungs, I was shocked and in disbelief and said nothing back but I am truly shocked that someone like that is allowed to work there. He let all his anger out on me and said nothing to my friends once they arrived.
  • When I moved to Albuquerque, one of my friends jokingly said "U know New Mexico is a beautiful place, it can be a great place to stay, if only u can ignore the people!" - I experienced this first hand after meeting the people at this place! We went there today after planning a kayaking tour. We called them up beforehand and told them that we were novices. They don't have 2 person kayaks so our only option was single person kayaks. About 1 minute after starting, one of my friends toppled and fell and after struggling for a few minutes, decided to quit. What would you expect any normal business owner to do? If not give a refund, AT LEAST BE COURTEOUS right....? Guess what we got from them - They WERE EXTREMELY RUDE TO US and also to our partners who completed the tour and they charged full price for the ones who quit. Bad attitudes cannot run good businesses, Stay away from them for your own sake....! Just like another reviewer wrote about them on Yelp, it is way better to just rent your own kayak from somewhere else and just use the river then pay them for nothing
  • we've have taken two different trips (2 mil and 4 mil) with quiet waters. Both unaccompanied (owner drops you off and picks you up), and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience the best of Albuquerque. Our second trip we took out of town guests and 5 of our kids ranging in ages from 7-11 and it was a blast. The river is a perfect place for young people to first experience kayaking. Kayaking the Rio Grande is one of the best kept secrets of our community!
  • Awesome sauce!
