    Early-Bird Rafting Discounts offered on Colorado Whitewater Rafting Trips

    River Runners, a river rafting company in Colorado with locations in Buena Vista and Canon City, offers buy-one, get-one half-off full-day whitewater trips down the Arkansas River on advanced bookings scheduled for May 1 – June 15, 2012.

    Eileen Peterson, general manager at River Runners, said this will be the best rafting discount all season and it’s being offered during an ideal time to go rafting in Colorado.

    “This is a very competitive price to raft premier whitewater in Colorado,” Peterson said. “May and early June is when we see peak water flows on the Arkansas River and it’s not as busy as in late June and July, so this really is the best time to go rafting in Colorado.”

    According to Peterson the discount is good for any full-day rafting trip offered by River Runners. This includes rafting the Royal Gorge and Bighorn Sheep Canyon from the Canon City outpost and rafting Browns Canyon and the Numbers from the Riverside Rafting Resort in Buena Vista.

    “Our rafting facilities are on or near the Arkansas River, which makes logistics convenient, Peterson said. “Plus we are centrally located near Colorado Springs, Denver and Colorado ski areas.”

    According to Peterson, these discounted Colorado whitewater rafting trips are approximately six hours round trip and include a catered riverside lunch. All required rafting equipment is included and wetsuits and splash tops are available for rent.

    “These are premium whitewater rafting trips at 25 percent off,” Peterson said. “This is the best rafting deal in Colorado with the most trusted and recognized river outfitters in the state.”

    According to Peterson, there is no limit on the number of people per booking to receive the discount.

    “Due to the size of our facilities, convenient locations and streamlined logistics, we can accommodate even the largest groups,” Peterson said. “Whether you are a scouting group looking for a whitewater rafting merit badge, an organization needing to raise money, or a group of friends and family seeking quality time together, our staff will work to give you the best possible rafting experience.”

    River Runners will celebrate 40 years of whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River in 2012. Fully guided beginner, intermediate and advanced rafting trips are available every day mid-April through Labor Day.
