The TAC Difference
|Guides||Rafting outfitters hire 20-70% of their guide staff as rookie guides. Each company’s training program teaches them how to guide rafts.||Colorado’s only rafting outfitter that exclusively hires experienced, professional raft guides for the best boat control and the most fun.||An experienced raft guide is by far the most important way to help ensure a safe and fun trip. Comfort allows guest to have the time of their lives!|
|Food||Most choose less expensive and easy meals, such as deli sandwiches.||Enjoy the famous Ultimate Fajita Feast hot lunch on all ¾ and full day raft trips.||Delicious and healthy meals, with choices that appeal to all preferences, add to the overall trip quality|
|Equipment||Generally serviceable with a mixture of older and newer gear. Sometimes limited sizing and questionable cleanliness of wetsuit gear.||TAC only purchases the best equipment, and regularly cleans and maintains it. The huge selection of wetsuit gear is sanitized after each use.||Cleanliness and proper fit result in a more comfortable experience. The best performing equipment also contributes to a safer raft trip.|
|Facility||Colorado real estate is expensive. Some companies choose simple locations, off the beaten track. There is a wide range of amenities and services offered.||TAC’s 6 acre riverside headquarters in BV is perfectly located to minimize driving and offers an impressive list of amenities including a coffee shop, lodge, check-in office, outfitter store, safe parking, clean restrooms and showers, and an organized boathouse.||Better amenities promote convenience and a more enjoyable experience. Everything that guests may need is available from a latte, breakfast burrito, and sunscreen, to a comfortable lodge, and beer or wine after your trip.|
