It is warming up in Northern New Mexico which means it is time to go rafting! One of our favorite ways to run the river is in an inflatable kayak (IK). The river levels we are anticipating throughout the summer are absolutely perfect for these spunky little crafts! We offer one and two person New Mexico inflatable kayaking for the same price as a riding in a raft. The Rio Grande Gorge Full Day trip is dreamy in an IK. The morning starts off with an extensive safety and instructional talk about handling the craft. The morning is spent floating through the Orilla Verde section that allows you to observe all the gorgeous birds while honing your paddling skills. You can also paddle from bank to bank in search of the largest frog or turtle on the Rio Grande. After a stop for lunch, the whitewater rapids are waiting! The class 3 Racecourse is more than manageable for any adventurous spirit. There is a perfect buildup of smaller rapids in anticipation for the the first big one, Albert’s Falls. While the chances for falling out of the IK is a bit higher, you will find that getting back into the them is a breeze. We will be waiting at the last rapid, Souse Hole, to snap pictures of everyone in all their glory for your viewing pleasure back at our headquarters directly after your trip. Photo discs are always available for purchase to show off to all of your friends and family!
New Mexico River Adventures also offers New Mexico inflatable kayaking on our half day trips, the Orilla Verde float trip, the Bosque float trip and the Racecourse as well as full day and multi-day trips on the Rio Chama. Just let us know at the time of booking that you are interested in riding in one and we will be sure it is available for your whitewater adventure! We are very excited for you to join us on the river so give us a call: 800.983.7756, or email us: email@example.com and we’ll see you out there!
