About the Owner

KODI Rafting Owners Dave and Amy McGrath love living in the Colorado mountains and spending time on the river with their two children.

The two have been rafting together since 2002 when Dave began his career as a raft guide on the Arkansas River.

After graduating from Kansas State University and starting a family in 2009, Dave and Amy set out on new adventures to reconnect with their roots, eventually returning to Colorado.

Dave and Amy share a passion for the river and are excited to pass the KODI legacy on to their daughter Danni and son Thomas.

If Dave isn’t your raft guide, he’s likely driving your bus with Thomas by his side. Amy and Danni, along with Scout the pup, will greet you when you return from your trip. Be sure to ask Danni for her famous smoothie in the coffee shop!



Zip and Raft Brown's Canyon

Zip and Raft the Arkansas River starts at Top of the Rockies Zip Line located between Frisco and Leadville near the summit of Fremont Pass.
