Gear up and get ready for New Mexico’s favorite half-day Class III whitewater adventure. This exciting 3-hour tour is our most popular half-day trip, and is perfectly suited to families, groups, first-timers, and those of all ages and abilities!
This 2 1/2 to 3 hour tour meets at 8:15 a.m. or 12:15 p.m. each day at the Pilar Yacht Club and Cafe, at the junction of State Highways 68 and 570, 16 miles south of the Taos Plaza, mile marker 28.5 (feel free to view our map and use our google maps links). Once checked in we will provide transport to the river where you will be issued all necessary safety equipment, given a pre-trip safety talk and then hit the water! Once on the river paddling technique instruction will be given and then we’ll be headed downstream towards the fun and splashy Class I to III rapids (easy to moderately challenging) with names like: Big Rock, the Narrows, and Souse Hole. We’ll serve refreshments and snacks at the end of the trip and then return you to your vehicle and dry clothes!
