Double Shoshone Half-Day Raft Trip

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 69.00
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your experience starts by meeting at the Defiance boathouse in No Name, CO in beautiful Glenwood Canyon (which is just 2 miles east of the community of Glenwood Springs). There, we will gear you up, talk about the trip, and introduce you to your river pro. Then we'll shuttle up the canyon to Shoshone where we will put-in on the Colorado River. You'll find action right away as we navigate down the Class III Shoshone section.

    You'll eddy out at Grizzly Creek, which is just below the Shoshone rapids, help your river pro load your raft and gear, and then we'll head back up to Shoshone for a second round of awesome!  After a thrilling double-dose of whitewater, you will continue downriver for about an hour through beautiful Glenwood Canyon to Defiance HQ at No Name.  

    Class I–III (IV at higher water flows) 

    Trip Length: 2 to 2.5 hours (dependent on river flow)

    Departs daily @ 4:00pm (June 15 - August 11) [Early and late-season departures twice daily @ 10:00am and 2:00pm]

    Check-In is 45 minutes prior to departure

    Requirements: Paddlers must weigh at least 50lbs to raft through the Shoshone rapids. Higher water levels typically occurring in late spring and early summer require that a participant be able to self-rescue in the event they fall out of the raft.

    Not a single complaint. The staff was exceptional and the rapids are legit. It is a very fun activity rain or shine, it was pouring when we went and still had a blast!

    The two guides for our rafting trip, Scott and Jamie, were great! They were reliable and funny. They were very relaxed and full of great stories and guided us safely through the waters while still having the exhilarating time!

    No, it was only our second time with the first time being two days before. It’s titled double because once you complete the route you then do it a second time. Enjoy!
