Guided inflatable kayak tours in Buena Vista, Colorado
Kayak the Arkansas River
Choose from an intermediate half day tour or an advanced full day tour. Both options start in front of River Runners where you can practice your paddle stroke, ferry across the river and catch eddies. Then load up for a four to eight mile kayak trip right back to River Runners (or Ruby Mountain on the full day). Continuous class II rapids will be encountered on the intermediate trip or run class III rapids on the advanced tour. Participants must be at least 12 years old for the half day and at least 14 years old on the full day. Everyone should be in good shape and strong swimmers.
