If you’re on the hunt for a heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping Colorado rafting trip, then our Numbers Half Day raft trip is for you.

Get lost in the thrill of navigating one of Colorado’s most difficult sections of commercially rafted river. You and your raftmates will paddle through several class III – class IV rapids over seven miles of Colorado whitewater. These rapids, which slip through a narrow and rocky section of the Arkansas River in Buena Vista, are so intense, they were numbered instead of named.

Our Numbers Half Day rafting trip is sure to keep even the most experienced rafters on their toes. It’s the ideal trip for guests who want to test their limits on Colorado’s biggest whitewater.

Cool fact: Miners in the late 1800s viewed these rapids on the northern section of the Arkansas River as non-navigable landmarks rather than the quintessential class IV classics they’re viewed as today. Hence, they were appointed numbers rather than given names.

*Check-in is required 30 minutes prior to departure time.

**Wetsuits, booties, and splash tops are not included on this trip but are available for rent.
