  • Great day! Can't beat a day on the water. The Salt River has great water this year and a short season. Completely worth driving a few hours out of the valley to experience even if you only have a day ...  more »
  • We’ve rafted with Wilderness Aware several times on the Arkansas. This was our first trip to do the full-day Salt River run. It was fantastic! The river is running fast from all the snow - maybe the f...  more »
  • The river and surrounding canyon was breathtaking and sometimes took my attention from listening to the paddling commands. But no matter who you go with, the surroundings are the same. The difference ...  more »

  • Thanks for a great rafting trip! The pre-trip info and directions were great. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our guide, Flocks, was awesome. He was knowledgeable about the river and area and made the morning fun and exciting. Ben took some great photos.
  • Very friendly boatsmen. Clean clothes. Nice conversation while rafting. Very careful and safe rafting. Look out for discounts. If you bring 10 people 20% discount. It may change in future
  • Omg soooooooo much fun my daughter grabbed a friend and drove all the way back from Dallas to go again the next month! Our guide was awesome and we had the great fortune of spending the day with both his parents and his daughter so you know we felt SUPER safe. Most beautiful day we could have hoped for in every way!
  • Incredible Experience! My wife, daughter and I went on the Browns Canyon half day trip. The staff was friendly and thorough in preparing us for the trip. Clear instructions were given on the equipment options and safety procedures. We were actually given time to practice the commands our guide would be giving us. Brady was our guide and you can tell he enjoys it. He engaged us in conversation, showed genuine interest in what we do, shared information about the area and river, and has a great sense of humor. He and the other four guides on the trip worked well together and made it a lot of fun. I highly recommend WA for your rafting experience.
  • Our family had a blast on the 1/2 day afternoon trip with Lucas. From the time we arrived, everything was very organized and every employee was helpful and friendly. Their facilities are great as well with a changing area, plastic bags for wet clothes, etc. The water was low but the rapids were still tough and Lucas guided us through them like a pro. I highly recommend WA Rafting!
