Whitewater rafting in Durango is fantastic, but there’s more than one way to experience the refreshing mountain waters.

Stand Up Paddleboards

Rent a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) to experience the calmer lakes in the Durango area. Paddleboards are a fun way to play on the water and get a full body workout without waves. Our Stand Up Paddleboards roll up and will fit in the trunk of nearly any car, making them easy to transport. SUP rentals are available for either half or full day and include ALL gear. No hidden fees – your helmet, wet-suit (if needed), paddle, pump, and personal floatation device are included. Plus, we use top-of-the-line NRS gear.

If you’re new to the sport, consider booking a Stand Up Paddleboard lesson with us. The lesson price includes all of the gear. Our instructors will teach you how to have a fun and safe SUP experience and give you the confidence you need in the water. Reserve your SUP or book a lesson with us today and discover for yourself why SUP is one of the fastest growing sports.

Prior kayak experience is not necessary. A Durango Rivertrippers & Adventure Tours guide will be on the water with you. You will be given all the necessary safety equipment and instruction needed to make the most of your kayak adventure. Enjoy the ease of carving through the water in your kayak. Learn to paddle, glide, and bounce through rapids and calm waters. Even when the river is low, inflatable kayaks offer a more exciting experience.

Inflatable kayak rentals are available as four or two-hour trips. Single or double seats are available. Book your inflatable kayak and take on the river with us!

Join us on a raft trip down the San Miguel River in Telluride, CO. In the spring and early summer this snowmelt-fed river plunges from the high peaks of the San Juan Mountains. NOTE: This river flows typically during the end of May and stops at the end of June. The dates we have loaded are the dates we are running this river.
