Sedona and the Verde River Valley’s Best Adventures
There is water in the desert
This do-it-yourself Verde River trip is a blast! We provide you with single or tandem inflatable kayaks which are comfortable, unbelievably stable, easy to paddle and just plain fun for everyone! You will discover a whole new world while gliding down the serene waters of the Verde River, the only ‘Wild & Scenic River’ in Arizona, in your safe and stable Ducky Kayak. The Verde River is an incredible wilderness of spectacular canyons, verdant forests, brightly colored wildflowers and a multitude of wildlife including mule deer, beaver, river otter, great blue herons, red tail hawks and golden and bald eagles.
We are the only company providing the rental and shuttle service in this beautiful wilderness section of the Verde River. This 5-mile float trip is interspersed with exhilarating chutes and calm floating pools, the Verde River is the perfect river experience for folks of all ages and takes on average about 2 to 3 hours depending on weather and river levels. You can choose from a morning or an afternoon ½ day river trip or spend the day floating, swimming and having a casual lunch on the Verde River on our full day rental option.
No experience is necessary for this safe and relaxing float down the gentle waters of the Verde River but this do-it yourself river trip is not for everyone and requires some athletic ability. Participants should be reasonably physically fit and prepared to get wet. All participants will be paddling and carrying their own boats and gear.
Your shuttle guide will assist you with basic paddling techniques, provide you with a river map and we will provide all of the gear you need to make this a truly enjoyable, memorable, and safe adventure.
