Private Inflatable kayak whitewater trip

Trip Details

The Inflatable Kayak, or Rubber Duckie, is the most unique and exciting way of going down the river for the whole family.

Inflatable Kayaking is much more exciting than white-water rafting because you are in complete control of your own boat at all times. Safe, fun, and suitable for anyone in search of adventure, this is your opportunity to get more challenge and freedom when you ride the waves.

Inflatable kayaks are maneuverable, resilient and, offer one of the most exciting ways to ride the river. Duckies ride low in the water making Class I-II rapids seem larger, and bigger Class III waves like Big Kahuna and Lunch Counter seem mammoth.

With absolutely no previous river experience necessary, duckie trips are fun for the entire family. Our experienced instructors will take you through a thorough equipment check, river safety course, instruct you on the fine art of paddling a duckie, then lead you down through the class III rapids of the Grand Canyon of the Snake River.

All equipment and transportation are included. If you're not ready for the over, under, and upside down that a kayak provides, but are tired of lumbering along in a large raft, then the inflatable duckies are the way to go
