    What to Expect
    Arrive at our riverside location 30-45 mins prior to the trip departure to allow plenty of time for our friendly staff to help you with recommendations on what to wear, a quick lesson on how to paddle and instructions on safety before getting on the river. A short stroll down to the river is where your raft awaits and the excitement begins! Your professional guide will give you step by step paddle directions as you navigate through exciting class III-IV rapids. Stop midway through for a healthy, fresh cooked fajita lunch or if you choose the Sprint trip you will have a quick snack rather than a hot fajita lunch. You will be awestruck throughout the day by stunning saguaro cacti, desert wildflowers, red canyon walls and unique rock formations. You will be back to experience this amazing river year after year.

    Was the water dangerous? Yes it was. Did I feel safe with my crew? Yes I did. With a snug life jacket you are about as likely to drown as a cork is to sink. My crew was fun and there were many laughs. Our guide was well educated and informative. The fajita lunch was great and

    excellent trip down the Salt River. Went end of April, water was quite high due to the amount of snow over the winter. Guides were great, felt very safe. Got really wet, which was great. Equipment excellent. They provided wet suits and booties if requested.

    We had a great time on the Salt River! Justin was great, very knowledgeable, and we felt very safe with him. My husband and I have both complete several rafting trips in other states and countries. The Salt River doesn’t have the biggest rapids given it’s in the middle of the
