Why we are Your Best Choice for Outdoor Fun

Dvorak’s Rafting, Kayaking and Fishing Expeditions was established by Bill and Jaci Dvorak in 1985 in the scenic Arkansas River Valley. In fact, as one of the early pioneers of western whitewater river rafting in Americas’ Rocky Mountains, the Dvorak’s own the first outfitter license by the state of Colorado. Bill Dvorak’s river trips, whitewater skills camp and swift water training programs are world renown and have been featured in ESPN, National Geographic, and the Chicago Tribune and in several travel books and television specials.

Bill and Jaci Dvorak are outdoor educators of long standing. Married in 1969, the Dvoraks spent many years teaching school in Australia and managing outdoor leadership courses for Outward Bound in New Zealand, Asia and England. In 1979, Bill Dvorak took over the leadership of the Partners River Program out of Denver, an outdoor educational program for disadvantaged youth, which he and Jaci purchased in 1984 and renamed Dvorak’s Kayak, & Rafting Expeditions. They are so experienced that, at the last count, Bill Dvorak had accumulated over 60,000 miles of river running experience in addition to having personally instructed the Dvorak Expeditions guide-training course for over 35 years! All of this goes to show that Dvorak’s Rafting, Kayaking, & Fishing Expeditions are quality and well worth your time!
