Best Adventure of our Visit to Santa Fe!
“We have never white water rafted before our trip to Santa Fe. We checked out the reviews of the several companies and decided to try Kokopelli. SOOOoooo happy we did! Our guide Amanda made us feel so comfortable and she is so knowledgeable about the river, animals, rocks, fauna and more. Several of the other companies we saw going down the river were very large groups, forced to wait for each other as they tackled the trickier areas along the Rio Grande. On a hot Wednesday afternoon, we were the only two in our group. Pictures were taken at the start of the adventure and at a second location near class 3 rapids with the option to go online and purchase at a later date. The lower water level this time of year required the expertise of our guide to instruct us how best assist her in navigating the rocks and rapids, and Amanda did great! Toward the end of the trip, we all jumped off the raft and drifted alongside. Although the water was a brisk 64 degrees, it felt so refreshing after the 96 degree day! Such a great adventure! Thank you Amanda for a great time!”

Great Rafting Adventure!
“Amazing whitewater rafting trip on the Rio Grande Racecourse Sunday June 16. Great job by the 6 guides on our trip. Big shout out to Amanda that guided our raft of first-timers through the course, she was awesome!!


Great water, great scenery, great guides!
“My wife and I went with Kokopelli this last weekend for a half day Racecourse trip. It was an amazing day! The guide was knowledgable, the water was really fun, and the conversations between the guide and other boaters was great. I’d highly recommend anyone go with Koko!”
