Our Equipment

We live in a harsh desert environment. With searing summer temperatures, sharp volcanic rocks, and the occasional cactus, our gear needs to be able to handle any abuse we dish out. We rotate our boats every season, keeping our fleet new and current. Our tents and sleeping bags are top quality name brands, and our meals are delicious and healthy.

Our Kayaks

Our high performance boats are made by SEDA, a California based company that produces superfast fiberglass, carbon, and kevlar hulls. We also use sleek kayaks by Delta, Jackson Kayak, Necky, Current Designs, Prijon, and Perception. Used by racers and recreationalists alike, these kayaks cruise past all others in the canyon with minimal effort. Rudders make steering a breeze, and hatches keep your belongings dry. Our guided trips will be always be equipped with these high end kayaks and paddles.

For our rentals and self-guided trips, guests can choose from either sit-inside or sit-on-top kayaks from Jackson Kayak, Ocean Kayak, Old Town, and Bic Sports.

Our Canoes

We use composite canoes fromSEDA, Northfork canoes from Wenonah, and Discovery 169 series from Old Town, Canoes are over 16 feet long, and hold all the luxuries for those overnight or weekend trips. No need to leave the ice chest home in one of these.

Our Gear

Any time you take a trip with us or rent equipment, you will be fully outfitted with everything you need for an enjoyable trip. Upon arrival, you will be fitted for a life vest and paddle. All boats are eqipped with bowlines and sponges, and sprayskirts are available with touring kayaks upon request. If you need a drybag, we offer rentals to keep things dry. The details are taken care of for you, leaving you stress free to sit back and enjoy the scenery.
