“We all had a super time”

Hi Britt,

We all had a super time.  So much better than the one we did in Alaska. Also thank you for the advice to see the Valley of Fire Park.  It as our favorite!!

Thank you again.

The Rio Grande in Rocks

Just downstream of Taos Junction Rapid, on the Rio Grande of northern New Mexico, is a group of basalt rocks that, at high water, are vigorously washed by strong currents. The sediment carried by the high water sculpts and polishes these rocks. To my eye, the sculpting of the rocks model the river’s waves, while the polish on the rocks model the river’s gleam.

America Outdoors Association Marketing and Management Conference, Dec. 2017

The New Wave crew does not take all winter off. Kathy and Steve Miller, President and VP of New Wave Rafting Co. respectively, attended the America Outdoors Association Marketing and Management Conference, held early this December in Reno, NV. This is, as you would suppose, our industry group, with the membership consisting of river guides, canoe liveries, dude ranches, horse packers, fishing lodges etc. Forward-looking outfitters attend this yearly event to discover new ways to upgrade their service to the outdoor-loving public.

“The most wonderful raft trip down the Rio Grande”

Guide Testimonial Britt Runyon, 7/29/17

“On Wednesday Susan and I took the most wonderful raft trip down the Rio Grande south of Taos. Our guide, for the second time, was our friend Britt Runyon, with New Wave Rafting. Britt has such a great love for this area, along with deep knowledge of the plants, animals and the river itself (and is such a great guy), that the trip was a total joy! We highly recommend him and the river itself.”

“Our rafting experience was AMAZING”

Neil and Lenny on SUP

“Our rafting experience was AMAZING due in part to the expert guide we had.  I can’t remember his name but his aunt & uncle have ownership in the rafting company.  We rafted in the AM trip on July 18th and had a blast.  I had rafted before but my significant other had not.  He being from Chicago and me from Montana made the difference.  I am recommending your company to others and will continue to do so.  Thank you for a wonderful morning.

Cathy and Karen were the best!”

It Was A Wonderful Experience

“To Whom it May Concern:

Today our daughter and our 2 grandchildren went on your New Wave No Wave Float Trip. It was a wonderful experience.  The kids LOVED it.  Our guide, Jessie, was delightful.  We would ask for him again.  The lunch was delicious, and the presentation was picture perfect.  We felt like we were the Rockefeller’s. Thank you for offering this option for younger children.  We will spread the word.”
