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. If you are looking for rafting in July and August check out our Durango River Rafting page. 

Durango's Best Whitewater Rafting

Durango, Colorado. Explore the Animas River, a fantastic starting point for both newcomers and seasoned rafters with its Class I, II, and III rapids. Our rafting trips vary, including the popular 4.5-hour half-day trip that features a snack and water break, and the 2.5-hour “Splash and Dash” trip, perfect for those who crave a quick thrill through Durango’s famous whitewater park.

Our guided rafting trips and other exciting activities highlight the best of what Durango has to offer. From May to September, weather permitting, enjoy our rafting season to the fullest. The half-day rafting trip lets you see downtown Durango from a unique river perspective, navigate thrilling rapids, marvel at stunning scenery, and possibly spot local wildlife.

For a longer adventure, our 3/4 Day Rafting with Riverside Lunch trip spans six hours door-to-door, with about 4.5 hours on the water and includes a delightful riverside lunch. This trip, accommodating 4-7 people, promises the most time on the river and creates lasting memories.

Additionally, our rafting trips traverse the national kayak course, featuring historical Old West landmarks and stories from Durango’s early days. Our knowledgeable guides offer more than navigation through rapids; they provide insights into the area’s history and lore.
