Awsome kayaking tour day trip. Tour guide Preston was so friendly, pointed out land marks in Vegas Old Railroad Casino, Boulder Creek landmarks and interesting info about that small town. Great lessons on first timers at kayaking. During the kayaking talked about certain areas to look at. Hiked up the hill to see house burned down 1974...Stopped at a park to see longhorn sheep herds. Just Awsome trip ever. Had a blast so much FUN!!!!

It was beautiful! Tyler was a fantastic guide. We would do it all over again. It was hotter than average for June, but the cold Colorado was a perfect refresher.

The current is very slow moving so paddling upstream was easy. The tall rock cliffs made for some beautiful scenery, and our tour guide was very friendly and helpful. The cave itself is really more of a small cove in the side of the rocks but still beautiful.

We had such an incredible time! Our tour guide, Kylee was fantastic, funny and super knowledgeable of the area. The trip was beautiful - the water was clear and super refreshing- especially in the 115 degree weather. We were able to stop about halfway through the trip for snacks, water, a swim and a short hike up to a scenic overlook where Kylee took photos of all of us. She was able to airdrop our photos at the end of the trip. The whole trip was about 5 miles and was a very easy paddle as the river was slow. River Dogz had great communication, which started a couples days before the trip and they were able to make sure you were very prepared before going on your trip. Make sure to tip your guides! We will most definitely be back for a longer trip!
