Best Value: Journey Quest's trips are the best value on the Arkansas River with competitive pricing and individualized attention! Our riverside location allows us to offer longer trips with more rapids than any other outfitter, so you'll pay less, but spend more time on the river and less on the shuttle bus.

Commitment to Safety: Your safety is our first priority! Journey Quest's staff undergo rigorous on-river training — at least double the state requirement — and are certified in Swiftwater Rescue, Wilderness First Aid and CPR.
