Clear Creek Rafting
Our Guides are outdoor enthusiasts and our greatest asset. Their love of the outdoors and the rivers is contagious. They are also highly-skilled professionals with years of combined rafting experience, extensively trained in first aid, CPR and river rescue techniques. Your safety is our primary concern. Fully-insured and licensed by the state of Colorado, our safety record is one of the best in the business. Children and non-swimmers are welcome. Our equipment is the highest quality available. We use Coast Guard approved life-jackets and professional quality Hyside rafts. Transportation is provided in clean, well-maintained buses and vans licensed and inspected by the state of Colorado.

Clear Creek Third-Day Beginner Rafting Adventure
Grab a paddle and jump aboard! This beginner trip offers plenty of enjoyment. The Class III rapids are frequent and playful so plan on getting wet as you negotiate your way down the river. This trip accommodates children as young as 7 years of age which makes it a fun family experience. Because the water is usually cold, wetsuits are highly suggested and are available for rent. We offer afternoon trip (12:30 PM).
Minimum Age: 7 years old

Clear Creek Intermediate Whitewater Rafting Adventure
Looking for a bit more challenge than our beginner trip? This exciting rafting trip incorporates our beginner section of fun and frequent class II/III rapids and builds up to finish with the adventurous and challenging class IV rapids. Because the water is usually cold, wetsuits are highly suggested and are available for rent. Meeting time is 3:00pm.
Minimum Age: 13 years old
