Available discounts apply to groups of 12 or more and depend on the number of people, trip requested, and the rafting trip date preferred. Although nearly all of the whitewater rafting trips we offer are available to reserve online, we suggest you contact us by phone so we can best accommodate all the dynamics of your party.
When selecting the date and time of your corporate team building activities try to meet the needs of the majority. It is important to poll your group regarding what type of rafting experience is best. Do they want a full-day, half-day or overnight river rafting trip? Will there be children joining in the activities? What type of whitewater do they want to experience? Is the intent a team building rafting trip, or more a family reunion? We can assist you with the best trip for your group based on these questions.
If everyone does not agree, it is possible to split the group and run two or more different trips to accommodate varying interests and skill levels. For example, beginners can run the Bighorn Sheep Canyon full day family rafting trip at 9:30 a.m. while the more adventurous crowd can go on the full day Royal Gorge adventure class whitewater trip, which departs at 10:00 a.m. Both of these trips return to our office at approximately the same time. Also keep in mind that we offer the Raft-n-Rail, a unique experience that combines a Royal Gorge railroad train ride and rafting trip. Our best team building rafting trip, the Battle of the Bighorn, includes a lot of entertaining challenge stations along the route of this race that requires the utmost in teamwork. This exclusive package works with people of all ages and abilities including those who may not want to raft.
Once you have made your decision, call 1-800-755-ECHO(3246) to reserve space. We will build you a quote and reserve your trip on a tentative basis for 10 days (with enough planning time and space permitting), which gives the group leader enough time to collect and provide us with a deposit.
A 50% deposit is required to guarantee the reservation. We will then email a Reservation Confirmation upon receipt of your deposit. Confirmed numbers and the total balance is due 30 days prior to the trip departure date.
Group Leader Hint: It is easier to collect the entire amount up front and avoid going through the collection process twice. This also saves you the time and frustration of the person who is non-committal.
Let everyone know when their deposit and final balance needs to be submitted to you so they can budget accordingly. You will need to explain our cancellation policy to everyone. The group cancellation policy is as follows:
Refunds (less a $15 per person per day reservation fee) will be made on any reservation if canceled at least 30 days before departure date. Reservations cancelled less than 30 days before departure are not subject to a refund. All trips depart as scheduled regardless of weather conditions.
