This is my fourth kayaking trip with Quiet Waters. The guides are always super helpful and Michael makes the preparation easy and safe. Kayaking the Rio Grande is a relaxing and enjoyable activity to do with the family.

Even in winter (09Feb2018), a self-guided trip with Quiet Waters is a joy. Jayce and Michael were, as usual, warm and welcoming and helpful.

Q.W.P.A. was a phenomenal experience. I will always repeat this majestic adventure with Q.W.P.A. when I return to New Mexico. The company management has great spirit and positive energy. Fortunately the weather was awesome too, the cottonwoods were in their Autumnal "Golden Attire"!
