Full description

Hungry for adrenaline-filled fun? Take on the Clear Creek in Denver for a beginners level whitewater rafting experience. Go through a safety talk with your guides before setting off into the beautiful canyon and make a splash as your crew paddle downstream.

Make your way to the rafting center and meet your awesome crew for the day. Enjoy a short safety briefing and study the route you'll be taking down the middle Clear Creek rapids before getting wetsuited up and into the water.

Encounter several continuous class I-II rapids and let the water carry you over the edge as you paddle to keep your raft straight. Lean into the thrill as you crash down Initiation Falls, Castle Falls, Mister Twister, Hightop, Speed Limit 55, and Mountain Lion.

All the while immerse yourself in the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains and admire the picturesque landscape surrounding you. Keep an eye out between the splashes for wildlife that makes its home in the canyon.
