We meet at Pinnacle Rock Recreation Site, located 11.6 miles west of the junction of Hwy. 50 and Hwy. 9, which is 9 miles west of Canon City. There are parking, changing and restroom facilities at the site. Since we do not meet at our office, you will need to rent wetsuits, splash jackets, and shoes ahead of time. We will send you a rental reservation form with your confirmation that must be returned ahead of time. Photos and Tee-shirts are available at the end of the trip.
Up to seven guests plus the guide can paddle in a raft. We can take eight people if someone is willing to ride in the middle of the raft as a passenger. Groups larger than eight people must split between multiple rafts. We can tell you at the time of your reservation if your group will need to split up for other reasons. The paddle raft option is for our adventurous guests that want to have a hand in the action. Here, you are part of a crew and must contribute to the team effort in maneuvering the raft. The crew is captained by one of our qualified guides.
Our guides represent the most qualified professionals in the industry. Guides must attend a 5-day interview trip prior to being hired. They are thoroughly experienced in the techniques of river running and are first-aid and CPR certified. Before guiding their first commercial trip, our guides receive river training that far exceeds the state requirement. What sets our guides apart is the personal attention they give our participants. Our crew of fun loving professionals is dedicated to making each and every trip the finest possible. We regularly conduct interpretive workshops to provide our guides with additional information on the natural, cultural, and political history of the rivers we run. We are proud of our staff and we know you will enjoy this fine group of people.
