Let’s get wet! The Full Day Royal Gorge raft trip is one of the best raft trips near Colorado Springs. Navigate adrenaline-pumping, continuous, action-packed rapids through a magnificent canyon. This adventure will excite even the most experienced whitewater enthusiasts. Experience the thrill of Sunshine Falls, Sledgehammer, Squeeze Box, Boat Eater and many more as the river takes you beneath the world’s highest suspension bridge.

This is the ultimate advanced whitewater challenge for those in good physical condition looking for “Big Water.” The full day adventure includes a delicious riverside lunch.

Minimum age on the full day Royal Gorge raft trip will vary with river conditions. At higher flows it becomes a very demanding run and will diminish in difficulty at lower water levels.

Living in Breck, we go rafting often and always with Performance Tours – they’re a locally owned company in the area longer than any other raft company and have the most experienced guides. As usual, the day was amazing, the water was fast, and lunch was amazing! – Lisa

My wife and I did two full day trips with Performance Tours this week: Number and the Royal Gorge. Our guides were excellent – funny and very knowledgeable of not only rafting, but the local history of the river as well. This was our first time rafting in Colorado and would highly recommend Performance Tours. We will certainly go rafting with them again the next time we are in Colorado. – Corey

My husband and I had a wonderful experience whitewater rafting down the Royal Gorge! We decided to be adventurous on our honeymoon and try whitewater rafting and I am so glad we did! James was a fantastic tour guide and was very knowledgeable of the Royal GOrge and took good care of us. We definitely recommend this company to anyone! – Ava
