What do the Class of Rapids mean?
Most rivers in the world are rated on the International Scale of Whitewater I – VI.
- Class I: “moving water”
- Class II: “splashes”
- Class III: “wet and fun”
- Class IV: “big drops”
- Class V: “violent rapids”
- Class VI: considered “unrunnable”.
Each of our rafting options details the class of rapids you will experience to help you decide which trip would be best for you and your group. Even though rapids are designated a class, they can vary up or down a level depending on the amount of river flow.
When do we need to make reservations?
Many of our trips book out so make your reservation as soon as you have chosen a trip and date. Feel free to call us, or book online!
What rivers can I kayak on a trip?
Kayaks are offered to those with physical fitness and the ability to swim on the Lower Animas in Durango and Castle Valley in Moab.
How do I tip my guide and how much?
We cannot run tips on our credit card system, so bring cash or get your guide’s Venmo after your trip. Between 10% – 20% of your total trip cost is typical.
