Experience the Exhilarating Shoshone Rapids in Colorado Twice!  Ideal For Adventure Seekers!

Just want the rapids and no float time? This is your trip. We head straight to the Shoshone Rapids, about a 10 minute shuttle ride, where you will run all the rapids including Baptism, Tuttle’s Tumble, Tombstone, The Wall, and Maneater. Then we will take out as soon as the rapids finish and go back and run them all again, taking a more challenging line the second time. It’s a quick and easy double shot of the best rapids in the area and our least expensive option. This trip, or the extreme series, is especially recommended for athletic folks in their 20s and 30s and for anyone concerned the Half Day might be too mild for them.

100% Whitewater! Conquer the class III-IV Shoshone Rapids and just when you think you’ve pulled it off, we go back and do it again.
