The tandem Inflatable Kayak, or Rubber Duckie, is a unique and exciting way of going down the river for the whole family. With no previous experience necessary, inflatable Kayaking is an exciting way to experience the Grand Canyon of the Snake River.
These maneuverable, resilient inflatable kayaks offer one of the most exciting ways to ride the river. Duckies ride low in the water making small waves, like in Champagne rapids, seem larger, and bigger waves like Big Kahuna and Lunch Counter seem mammoth. With absolutely no previous river experience necessary, duckie trips are 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 included. If you're not ready for the over, under, and upside down that a whitewater kayak provides, but are tired of lumbering along in a large raft, then the inflatable duckies are the way to go!
