Next Steps


'Becoming a professional river rafting guide is not for everyone. It takes commitment, dedication, and a willingness to constantly learn and improve. The reward for learning this skill will serve you for life.'

When you work with us to achieve your status of Raft Guide, our trainers share standardized knowledge of operating White water rafting and river operations alongside their passion for guiding on wild rivers and under blue skies. The confidence level of guides within our program increases dramatically over the course of training. You will become comfortable taking charge in front of people you have never met.

Fellow guides become close friends with a common bond of loving the outdoors, and the constant adventures of challenging whitewater!
