Why Choose the Family Float Trip?

Raft Masters’ Family Float is the safest rafting trip offered in the state of Colorado.  If you are looking for family time on the river, but have young children, this trip is for you. We recommend this trip for families with children between the ages of 1-4 years old.  On the Family Float, you will experience the tranquility of floating down the river and getting in some splashy fun while spending time with your friends and family. Small children love the adventure of rafting down the most rafted river in the United States! Click here to learn more about what makes Raft Masters the safest rafting trip.

The Run Down

Once you’re in the boat and heading down the Arkansas River, you will enjoy scenic views while you float on gentle whitewater that is perfect for families with young children. After about 5 miles on the river, you will load up on the bus and head back to Raft Masters. You’ll have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs for your friends and family and view the photos taken of you and your group on your trip.
