Colorado's 1st Licensed Whitewater Outfitter; Bill Dvorak’s Expeditions Est. 1969; has been traveling on wilderness, protected rivers for over 43 years. We know it’s the best way to reach the magic of the natural world and perhaps each of our souls. Having shared the “River Magic” with over 140,000 guests we have learned that if we take care of each of you, you will in turn take care of us by returning year after year.
Our adventures on 9 different rivers and more than 29 canyons in these southwestern states will offer you choices in destinations from desert rivers to high adrenaline whitewater or a float trip. In addition to boating you can choose a range of activities that include a mix of bike, hike, fly-fish, rock climb, four wheel drive tour, horse back ride and of course rafting. We have expeditions fit for youngsters to grandparents and everyone in-between. You can sleep under the stars or in a five star ‘bed and breakfast’. You can choose your travel companions, travel solo, charter a group trip or let us put a package together for friends, families or colleagues.
Dvorak’s trips have a least two things in common: We believe in the sanctity of our planet and our responsibility to protect it. So which ever adventure you choose with us, we are careful and conscious of how we will share this journey with our guests and we will educate along the way. And…. All of our expeditions will be to the best of our experience and ability as well as unforgettable “River Magic”.
Your expedition with us always begins with your choice and we ask that you concentrate on the fun. We will pump the boats, plan the day, provide the gear, cook the meals, keep track of everyone. We will pay attention to all the details you deserve and make this adventure seem like your personal charter. You are not just a customer we want you as our friend and member of the life long crew. We now share relationships with the children of many of our past guests, some have become part of our guide staff. We'll send you an itinerary and make the initial meeting as easy as possible, then you can turn over the worries to us and just enjoy!

We arrived expecting a somewhat mild trip on a raft due to lower than usual snow fall and subsequent lower flow rates in the Brown Canyon portion of the Arkansas River. We told Derek who was our guide that we wanted some excitement and he suggested the "Duckey boats" versus the large rafts. The Duckey is an inflatable kayak as we soon learned. All of the other participants chose the raft.
My wife and I chose to follow his advice. We are in our 50's a ... more
Biggest Fish I ever caught!anicka

We did the Gunnison Gorge fly fishing trip and not only did we have a perfect anniversary trip but i caught the biggest Trout ever! My husband no longer holds the record and I'm coming back to this spot every anniversary. Incredible gorge and the food was to die for. I almost want to keep this a secret but it's almost private anyway with limited access to people. This is magic rafting. ... more
