"We spent a lot of time deciding between rafting companies in Glenwood, and we're so happy we ended up with Blue Sky. We're rafting novices, and this was a great starter trip with some impressive rapids at the beginning followed by a leisurely float down the canyon..."

"What a great experience! The Shoshone rapids were perfect for my family. This time of the year the water level is perfect for little ones... Go earlier in the season for bigger rapids. CatJo did an amazing job guiding us safely down the river..."
