Why Choose the Full Day Royal Gorge?

If you’re looking for a full day of whitewater adventure, this trip is for you! You also have the opportunity to “warm up” on some milder rapids before taking on the adventures of the Royal Gorge during the second half of your trip.

The Run Down

Your journey will begin with rafting the Bighorn Sheep Canyon on the Arkansas River. You will enjoy watching for bighorn sheep as you prepare to navigate rapids like Five Points, Spike Buck, and Cowgirl Up. After lunch, get ready to hit the big stuff on the famous Royal Gorge section. The gorge  narrows to only 25 feet wide and reaches up to 1,100 feet deep.

You and your crew will navigate this adventurous section famous for its steep drops, huge waves, and unforgettable rapids like Sunshine Falls, Sledge Hammer, and Boat Eater. Upon exiting the canyon, the water calms and you’ll find yourself arriving in Cañon City and heading back on a very short bus ride to Raft Masters. You’ll have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs for your friends and family and view the action-packed photos taken of you and your group on the biggest rapid of your trip.
