Family Friendly River Rafting Adventures

Like the song goes, the summer of ‘69 was where it all began for the Dvorak family. We became the first licensed outfitter in Colorado, realizing a lifelong dream of sharing the magic of the Colorado rivers with families from all across the country. Bill and Jaci Dvorak have raised their own family on these rivers and know better than anyone what it takes to plan and execute a family river rafting adventure.

Talk to DVK about the perfect family whitewater vacation, including kids of all ages.

The Dvorak team will help you plan and customize a trip fit for any family

We know how to bring fun for the kids, and safety and assurance for the parents. We want everyone to have fun, and rafting is a great way to bring a family together. You’ll challenge your kids to experience something a little out of their comfort zone. They will love being part of the team, helping to guide the raft down the rivers and maneuvering family friendly rapids. And, since the Dvorak guides have taken care of everything from start to finish, parents can relax and enjoy the experience with their kids.
