Michael & Seth were awesome! They always prepared us for what was coming! Totally safe and laid back. Not huge groups of people so it felt more personalized!
Awesome memories!

We had the best time rafting with our awesome guide, Seth, with Monumental Expeditions. He was a great leader, knowledgeable, fun, informative and calm. We even stopped for a break halfway through and hiked up to two waterfalls for pictures. Thanks Seth, for an awesome adventure and memories that will last a lifetime!

Free was amazing took the time to educate us and make sure we were safe. He also took the time to show us the beauty of all the scenery around us and overall just made sure we were all having a good time. All around just awesome guy.
Fantastic Experience All Around!!

The ride was awesome. We lucked out and ended up with just my husband and me, along with our awesome guide, Free, in the raft. He taught us so much about how to properly paddle and gave us lots of cool info about the local area. I would highly recommend going with this smaller, more personal rafting company.
Our first trip

Cancelled with little notice
Robert_B, Jul 2021
Despite the “no weather based cancellations” on the website, after driving 2 hours to town we received a text minutes before arrival stating that trips were cancelled. Found the rest of the rafting companies in Burns Vista running full steam.
Perfect first time White Water Rafting with Free.
Joshua_R, Jul 2021
Absolutely amazing experience! Had the best guide for first time White Water Rafters— Free. He was knowledgeable on the area and it’s history, great as a coach on the water, and brought a great energy to our trip.
