What to expect
Your tour starts in either the morning or afternoon at the rafting tour office, where you'll sign a waiver form and get ready for your trip down Durango's Lower Animas River.  After a shuttle ride to the river, listen to a safety briefing and some instructions, and then hop on your raft and hit the water. With your guide in charge of the raft, you'll paddle along, navigating the Train Bridge Rapid, Baby Smelter, and Class III Smelter Rapid. Pull over on the riverbank for a snack of granola bars and fruit, and then continue rafting along the Sawmill, Santa Rita, and Pinball rapids, depending on the flow. Your tour ends with the shuttle ride back to the rafting office, roughly four hours after your departure time.

Best white water rafting in Durango!
Amazing! I highly recommend this trip and is so worthwhile the money! It was a perfect day and our guide, Trey, who happened to be the head guide for the trip was professionally, personable and very safety conscious. We loved him. We had a little incident in another raft and myself and another nurse in our group helped with that.

The water was refreshing and we were never too hot during the heat wave today. The rapids were just enough to give you a thrill but not scare you.

Don’t miss this trip! Best white water rafting in Durango!

Rafting in Moab
May 2021 • Family
This is long overdue! However, I still haven’t forgotten to leave a review about how great our trip was.
We had 3 different instructors with us because we took a huge group, but unfortunately I don’t remember all their names. Our instructor was Namey. She was great! & so were the other instructors!
Thank you again for the time, patience, & fun you all provided! & let’s not forget the fun we had with the water fights!

Do THIS!
Jun 2021 • Family
I was hoping for Victoria as our guide because she is cute and at least half my age. We wound up with Rob, who is a long haired semi-vegitarian, so it wasn't too much of a stretch.
In all seriousness...this is a great group of people. If you haven't been rafting before, you couldn't ask for a better start. If you have been rafting, this is a liesurely half day on a great river.
As with all things, people make the difference. The M2W crew delivers in spades. Very family friendly. Very fun. Not only do they take you down river, but they'll tell you everything to do and see and eat in Durango, provide comedy (?), and you'll leave the river with some new friends. I wish I could give them more stars.
*No need to get a bodysuit or boots.
**Animas is derived from Latin. It means soul or life. A better translation would be: That which arouses life and brings it into consciousness. NOT the River of Lost Souls, no matter what your guide tells you.
