Family float on Arkansas?

I want to bring my small children and grandchildren out about July 18th. Do you know any outfitters who will take smaller than 5 years 50lbs on a very mild float?

Try 800.497.RAFT. We do a class II milk run trip with very experienced guides.

I also work at The Adventure Company, where we offer trips for families with very young children. The Milk Run on the Arkansas River is a mild float trip where we can take children as young as 2 years old, depending on appropriate water levels. Also, we are Colorado's only outfitter that will not hire inexperienced guides. All guides at The Adventure Company are at least in their 3rd year of commercial rafting.

Give us a call at 800.497.RAFT (723 to speak with our staff directly.

Call the people at Raft Masters. The website is Colorado Whitewater Rafting | Raft Masters. It's a very mellow trip, and kids as young as 1 can go. It's perfect for families with smaller children. Enjoy!
