Regardless of river levels, this gem always delivers on the promise of fun and excitement. With Independent Whitewater, you get two extra rapids and can experience all of the Brown’s Canyon National Monument on a half-day trip, thanks to our private takeout! Our guides love these rapids, and you will, too! More miles, more smiles!
Looking for a way to beat the heat and get out with friends and family, but nervous about big whitewater? Then our Salida Family Float trip is perfect for you. These family rafting trips are geared towards anyone looking for a mild introduction to whitewater, or just a relaxing day on the river filled with fantastic scenery, wildlife and bird watching–it’s an all-around great time! Smaller waves and splashes keep it cool and fun, but without the stress. The Salida Family Float trip is a fantastic way to spend a summer day on the Arkansas River!
The Bonus Numbers 1/2 day trip is suited for experienced rafters that want an adrenaline-fueled hour and a half of exciting and continuous class III and IV rapids. We give you a longer trip and include the exciting miracle mile rapid that you won’t get with the other companies. Experience is recommended but not necessary if you are in good shape and looking for an exciting time.
