Celebrating Julie Sutton, ART River Manager USA Team Captain

Our River Manager at Arkansas River Tours, Julie Sutton, is an incredible steward of whitewater and rafting experiences alike.

As a guide, she’s been with us for over 12 years, and before that she spent 7 seasons guiding on the Gauley River in West Virginia.

If there’s one person who knows incredible, transformative river rafting experiences, it’s Julie Sutton. 

She also competes internationally. She served as Team Captain of the USA Women’s Raft Racing Team, a team that took 9th in the world while competing in Indonesia.

Beyond her accolades and many years of expertise, she’s a joy to be around and a paragon of river leadership. She’s an example for all of us to pursue what we love with full force and a fierce paddle. 

Here’s to you, Julie, and here’s to more years of big whitewater and even bigger smiles!
