Economy Durango Rafting Trip
Lower Animas River
About This Trip
3 hours round trip, about 1 hour on the water
A quick sampler trip for those with a tight itinerary, Durango’s Animas River is a popular day trip for locals and visitors! Bounce through fun-filled rapids on Durango’s Lower Animas, such as; “Train Bridge,” “Baby Smelter,” “Smelter Rapid,” and “Santa Rita”!
There is no experience necessary; we provide all you need for a fun, quick rafting day out on the river! Paddle along with the guide (we’ll teach you if you don’t know how) or sit back, relax, and let the guide do all the work!
Later in the season, all rapids can be downgraded a half to a full class. The river will become more technical and you may bounce and spin-off of the rocks as you maneuver into the channels of the river.
Inflatable kayaks are a great option to increase the level of adventure for ages 11 and up!
15 foot self-bailing rafts (up to 10 guests). Opt for an Oar Boat (paddle along with the guide as you like), or a Paddle Boat (more adventurous) when the guide just has a paddle and relies on you to help get through the rapids!
Experience a smaller guide to guest ratio (up to 6 guests) and a more personalized trip. Enjoy a smaller 12 or 13 foot raft, or request a 15 foot raft for a more conservative adventure.
Increase the level of adventure and control your own destiny under the supervision of a kayak guide along side of you! No experience needed; our instructors teach you all you need to know!
