Trip Details


Our Half Day Trip on the Salt River is a great adventure for those on the go who don’t have time to experience the Salt River Classic Trip. Make your way down 5 miles of scenic river with several fun Class II-III rapids including the infamous Overboard Rapid! Everything is included in this trip, just show up at the meeting location and we will take care of the rest. We highly recommend the Salt River Classic Trip which is 10 miles and features longer and more splashy rapids on the second half of the trip after a riverside grilled lunch buffet. Twice the fun for just a little bit more!
