I highly recommend New Mexico River Adventures! We did a half day race course on a Monday afternoon in August. Although the water was low it was a great experience and wish we had done a full day. Our guide, Erin, was wonderful! She had a great sense of humor, taught us a lot and made the whole experience even better! We now have a new love, appreciation, and respect for the Rio Grande. Thanks to NM River Adventures we have found a hobby our whole family loves and will continue to pursue.Monica McCaslin
Just want to say thanks to the entire team at NMRA for an amazing half day adventure on the river on 9/7. John Michael, our guide, was knowledgeable and friendly and the front desk staff were accommodating and helpful. (Special shout out to the gal who emailed me my photos after I lost the thumb drive). From the moment we walked in the door, I knew we had picked the right place! Highly recommend if you're looking for something exciting to do.Rebecca N.
