Colorado Kayak Trips
Inflatable kayaks (aka duckies) are a fun and exciting adventure! Our duckies are open and easily maneuverable and they offer a totally different experience on the river than rafting. Sitting low on the Arkansas River gives you a new vantage point and makes even small waves into big events; it’s a great adventure even with low water!
These trips are customized to your group and ability level. Our guides will show you the ropes and teach you proper kayaking techniques as you learn how to steer yourself through mellow rapids or challenge some of the skills you’ve acquired in the past. We cater to the first timer and the experienced kayaker alike and choose the section of river best suited to your group.
Take a morning trip, meeting at 9 am, or an afternoon excursion at 1 pm. A half day trip allows enough time to enjoy hiking and climbing nearby or enjoy a leisurely lunch in Buena Vista!
All of our kayaking trips provide everything you need for an unforgettable river adventure: your very own inflatable kayak, paddle, wetsuit, booties, splash jacket, life jacket, and helmet. Tandem kayaks are available, but we highly recommend maneuvering your own vessel. Every trip is guided by an experienced and certified Browns Canyon Rafting guide who will accompany you down river, teach you to steer your way through the rapids and be there if you end up taking a dip in the river.
Kayaking is physically demanding and all participants should be in good physical condition.
