Hi Steve,
I will post a comment on Trip Advisor but also wanted send you a personal note about our experience.  My husband and I, with our two boys, booked a trip with you in mid-July.  You were so helpful on the phone, determining which trip to take and providing directions.  On the day of our trip we were met at the location by your wife and Orlando.  They were so nice and took us to the launching point, giving us tips and pointers the whole way.  Orlando was our guide for the day and we had a wonderful time.  He was so knowledgeable and just generally fun to be around. He stopped several times for our boys to gather rocks, to swim or look for frogs and other creepy bugs.  :)  We all had a great told me on the phone that after the fact my boys would say the best part of the vacation was rafting and you were right!  They loved it!  We couldn't have asked for a better day or a better guide than Orlando.  Thank you so much for helping us to create a great memory.
Kindest regards,
Brandy McCally


Just want to let you know that Martha and I had a superb experience with New Wave Rafting Co. Such a good group of guides, such fun and very accomplished. We really enjoyed every minute on the river and managed to get wet and very excited too. Please let them know that we appreciated the journey very much.
Cheers, Karin & Martha


It was a great experience. You guys made it fun and safe for my family. Our guide Orlando was great. He thought us a lot about the  river and its surroundings. He made it fun! We would definitely recommend you to our friends.
I would love to do it allover again in the new future.

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.

My family had a great time. Neil (not sure of spelling) was a real expert boatsman. Even though we 3 were the only ones on the trip, his enthusiasm and energy did not wane. My wife, a non-swimmer, felt at ease. We enjoyed going "backwards" into the rapids. Tell him thanks.

Good luck at New Wave. I will post something positive in Tripadvisor.


Hello all! Just wanted to leave a quick note of thanks for a great rafting trip on May 27th 2013 with Neil. My wife Tracy and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Neil is very knowledgeable about the river and its surroundings and gave us an insightful history as we went along. Great trip, recommend to anyone in a heart beat!
Thanks Neil.


Hi, we had a fantastic time on the Rio Grande Gorge trip with our guide, Joe on Saturday, May 25th, 2013. The organization, equipment, lunch, and trip were exceptional. Joe's calm demeanor and knowledge-sharing are truly commendable. We look forward to coming back next year for the "box"!
Thank you again,

Hi Steve,

I wish to send out my gratitude to you and your staff. Not only was BEN the best river guide for our family he was FUN.

We had a wonderful morning on the river, on July 25 2012, with Ben showing the children some huge frogs and explaining other river life. The boys really thought he was silly, that's hard to please 3 boys from ages 6-12 but Ben held his own and was a favorite for the trip. his name even made it into a postcard to grandma and hopefully on our screen saver once we decide which photo to purchase.

Also, the lunch was so far my expectations on the river. We expected premade sandwiches but NO WAY. Ben got all these cool tools and tables and made a spread any creating company would be proud to feature on their outdoor selections. Only wish we had a camera to show everyone the great spread we were given to prepare tasty lunches. Our tummies were filled to the top for the last leg of our tour with Ben.. Thanks again for all you and your staff did to create a wonderful memory for our family.

Joe is perfect guide: Skillful, informative, interesting, fun to be with, attentive to an early mistake or two and acknowleding the correction or good move. It was certainly a glorious morning and quiet time on the river. We laughed a bunch and thoroughly enjoyed the time.
