Group Whitewater Rafting
This page is designed to help you plan a Colorado whitewater rafting trip for your group. Please use this page to begin developing your customized group whitewater rafting experience!
The first step you will need to make as the whitewater rafting trip leader is to determine the whitewater rafting trip that best meets the rafting criteria of your group.
Important considerations while developing your group’s whitewater rafting trip.
#1 – Make sure that you select a Colorado whitewater rafting trip that is acceptable for everyone in the group. Will you have families in your group? Do you have first timers in your group?
#2 – Choose the length of your whitewater rafting trip. At Buffalo Joe’s Whitewater Rafting we have a variety of trips from half to multi-day. Consider your groups travel times, departure times, and any “special” needs of your group.
#3 – Buffalo Joe’s Whitewater Rafting will be happy to send a Group organizer kit to help you understand and arrange your whitewater rafting group. Each group organizer kit will have whitewater rafting trip descriptions, a group sign up sheet to help with participant information, a list of what to bring on your whitewater rafting trip, along with brochures, magnets and pictures to allow you a complete picture of your group’s whitewater rafting experience! We also have a video that shows whitewater rafting pictures and photos.
#4 – Call and make your Colorado whitewater rafting reservation! One of our reservation specialists will help you establish the best pricing for you and your whitewater rafting group. If you have a large group (50-300) and are looking for a weekend whitewater rafting trip, it’s best to get your reservation in before early (April). If you have a small group (8-45) you will have flexibility to make your reservation later in the spring.
