  • This guide is designed to provide you with information on the ratings of the whitewater and degree of difficulty of each trip. this is a general description. Please note that water levels may change the intensity of whitewater on any river trip. Persons who are reasonably physically fit and are able to hold on tight are generally fine on our trips.

    Class 1 (I) Easy: Very little whitewater

    Class 2 (II) Moderate: Some whitewater. Small amount of maneuvering required

    Class 3 (III) Intermediate: More whitewater. Longer rapids requiring some precise maneuvering

    Class 4 (IV) Difficult: Long, continuous rapids with difficult, precise maneuvering required. these are generally scouted by your guide before running

    Class 5 (V) Very Difficult: Extremely difficult maneuvering required. Very dangerous. high probability of capsizing. very rare on commercial river trips.

    Class 6 (VI) Not Navigable: Unrunnable

    Green River - Lodore Canyon Class 3 to 3+ This trip offers excellent whitewater which is generally safe for the entire family. rapids on this stretch require some difficult maneuvering on the part of your guide.

    Yampa River Class 3 to 4 Rapids on this trip are generally very fun with very nice sized waves. Of specific interest is Warm Springs rapid, which is a solid Class 4 rapid. However, we give you the option of walking around this one.

    Colorado River - Cataract Canyon Class 3+ to 5This is a whitewater trip. Rapids in Cataract are continuous and very large, especially during the high water months of May and June.

    Green River - Split Mountain Canyon Class 2 to 3This is a great all-around trip for just about everyone, especially families. rapids offer good excitement but are generally safe for ages 6 and up.

    Green River - Flaming Gorge Canyon Class 1 to 2This is a great trip for those who may not want whitewater. It is a scenic float with abundant wild-life along the river corridor.

    If you are concerned about children, call us. There may be times when water levels do not permit your younger child to go during the high water times mentioned above. Persons with heart conditions or other physical limitations should also contact us before reserving.

  • Theres nothing quite like going to sleep along the banks of the river! After a day of rapids, hikes and outdoor activities it is nice to know that you have your own comfortable bed. However, it isnt always practical to bring your own gear from home. For an additional fee, we can provide you with a sleeping unit (consisting of a sleeping bag, self-inflating Thermarest pad, camp pillow and ground tarp) and an easy-to assemble tent w
