Here is the first of two groups brought each year by William Gloer, of Baylor College, in Waco, Texas. That’s William in the yellow T-shirt. The crutch was for one of the students, who had a sprained ankle. I wonder what the guy on the right was thinking? The group did the Racecourse run, on the Rio Grande.

New Wave Rafting most recent Rave Review

“Hi there, Thanks for your note.  The family and I had a GREAT time – one of the highlights of our vacation. All because of the great organisation and service that your people provide.  We were very, very impressed with Orlando, our guide for the day. Please send our best wishes and please let him know that he provided my family and I with a holiday that we will remember as a family, literally, forever.  Thank you.  Charlie, Stacey, Morgan, Zoe and Joel Weiser (Sydney, Australia).”

New Wave Rafting Co. exceeds your expectations!

New Wave Rafting Driveway Improvements

We hired Pat Archuleta, a local handyman, to bring his tractor over to do some work on our driveway, which needed widening. Then we added base course. That’s Kathy, NWRCo. Pres. and Guide Jesse, doing the evening-out of the material. Our headquarters are right on New Mexico 68, just 3 miles down the road (towards Santa Fe) from the County Line, one of the focal points of New Mexico rafting!




New Mexico Rafting T-Shirt 2013

From decades past, we have resurrected a great T-shirt design. “On the Banks of the Rio Grande” celebrates our great location in Embudo, New Mexico, where our headquarters are, indeed, located right on the banks of the Rio Grande. We operate SUP lessons right here and funyak rentals that either come or go from our riverside location. And, funyaks are available at no extra charge on our regular trips. Just ask.

As summer comes into full swing, we are now operating near capacity. We’re getting large groups, small groups, church groups, Boy Scout groups – many, of course, from Texas! New Mexico Rafting is what folks want, and we have it. Though the State of New Mexico is officially in drought, around here we have the gorgeous Rio Grande, running clear and warm (70 degrees!). You too can be refreshed with New Mexico rafting, with New Wave Rafting Co., on the banks of the Rio Grande. “Nuevo Wavo, Muy Bueno”.
