They require prior rafting/kayaking/duckying experience and even checked our prior experience in their system prior to allowing us to register. In reality, they combined rafters with no prior experience with...More

Through no fault of the company, water levels on the Poudre River were very low, perhaps too low for the company to continue rafting. Poudre Canyon is beautiful so the scenery is good even if the rafting is not exciting. Guides were good. Punctuality with...More

This was our second trip with Mountain Whitewater and they never disappoint. Dan remains the best guide to get you through the rapids with minimal delays. Would advise everyone try it at least once!
