The half-day trip is approximately four hours long, just right for the family who needs the other half of the day for sight-seeing or shopping in and around the Durango area. With the half-day trip you find a happy medium with the best of the two-hour trip and the full day trip with the right amount of time on the water. Your trip starts at the north side of Durango and you’ll float south to encounter whitewater ranging from Class II to III with such rapids as Main Street Bridge, Baby Smelter, Smelter, Side Pocket, Corner Pocket, and Saw Mill. Friends and families of all ages enjoy this trip at all water levels. This is the right trip to see the other side of Durango, the side the locals all love to see. You’ll have the opportunity to swim, treasure hunt, and enjoy wildlife along the river. Includes snack and drinks.
