Durango Rafting with Mountain Waters!

Durango’s Outdoor Family Activity Center

We believe that white water rafting the Animas River is the funnest thing you can do while visiting the Durango, Colorado area. The joy of floating down a stretch of family friendly river or being challenged by class 4 & 5 whitewater has created an insatiable passion in us that we want to share with you. Visitors to Durango come to tour Mesa Verde National Park or ride the Historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad for which we have custom tours and packages. Experience the San Juan Mountains on a guided 4×4 Jeep Trail Tour, Zip Line Adventure or introductory Rock Climbing excursion. Rent a bicycle or paddle board and explore the areas trails and lakes.
