Who to raft with down Brown's Canyon?


First of all I wasn't sure where to post this question but here we go.

Wife, brother in law and two nephews (9 and 11 years old) want to raft down Brown's next weekend. I'd like to chase them on my kayak down the river.

I'd like to get recomendations of a good kayak company to take them with and preferably a good raft guide. I know it depends more on the guide than the company, but I'm sure there are some guys that are better than others. So if you could suggest someone to call, preferably a company that takes a safety kayaker with each trip so I could tag along would be great.

At the Adventure Company we only have guides with at least 4 years of rafting experience. And I don't think we would have a problem with you kayaking along.

Colorado Whitewater River Rafting Vacation, Arkansas River Rafting Trip

or call us at 800.497.RAFT between 7 AM and 7PM

Your 2 BEST bets for an enjoyable trip through Brown's are

Buffalo Joe's Whitewater Rafting Colorado River Rafting and Colorado Rafting -, 1-866-BUFF-JOE, or

Performance Tours Rafting Colorado Whitewater Rafting - white water raft trips in colorado,

they have a couple of the best safety records in the valley

All three companies mentioned above are excellent choices. I'd call them all and see who will let you tag along in your kayak.

(I'm partial to the Adventure Company myself.......the owner is a great guy that will go out of his way to make sure your trip is a pleasurable one.)

A good friend of mine put his wife, friends, and his wife's mom and dad on with River Runners, and we paddled along, using their excellent put-in. River Runners is right across from the Fisherman's Bridge put-in.

My fiance also ran with River Runners on a trip without me before.
"self-aggrandizing jackass" - it says it right on the label

I organized a group trip with Buff Joes down Browns recently, 12 raft passengers, me following in my kayak. BJs were good people, no worries about following in the kayak, steak lunch and horseshoes is pimp. All the guides were top notch and BJ's was very safety conscious about the lil' tikes. Cost was competitive. Who doesn't love BJs?
