Scenic Rafting in Colorado

The Gunnison River headwaters start in the highest reaches of the county with the same name, cascading down from the mountains and finding its’ way to the Blue Mesa Reservoir – the largest body of water in the State of Colorado!    The Upper Gunnison flows through green pastures and groves of cottonwood trees, at one point cruising by ancient volcanic rock formations soaring straight out of the river high into the sky!  Wildlife is abundant, as the river is part of a large ecosystem that sustains many species of birds, fish, small mammals and large.  A blue heron rookery populates a turn on the lower stretch of the river.

This is a great family trip for all ages and a wonderful first time rafting experience!  Easy waves, we move along quickly enough to have a constant change of scenery.

At the end of the trip, we enjoy a little action as we navigate the first wave in the Gunnison Whitewater Park and pass by the beach atmosphere of the park.

This trip starts at 9:00 or 1:30 at our Gunnison Office seven days a week.

Extender Trip

1 extra hour and some extra scenery as you float down the Gunnion River. 

During the third hour, we enjoy a little more action as we navigate the rest of the waves in the Whitewater Park and tackle Mr. Big rapid.

This trip starts at 9:00 or 1:30 at our Gunnison Office. Children should be at least 3 years old for a float trip.
