The Gunnison river offers a great scenic float with a couple  exciting splashes through the whitewater park.  The perfect trip for the young ones.  If you want to test your skills in a personal craft you can try a duckie or inflatable kayak or take a multi-day kayak lesson and learn the basics of becoming a whitewater kayaker like the eskimo roll and the eddy turn.  We also offer Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Board trips on our local rivers
