#durangorafting #thedurangoguide

The rafting within the city of Durango, Colorado can be amazing

Generate good karma and tip your guide really, really, really well!

Correction I think we peaked around 3 grand, unless you have little kids or like an easy float trip, tubing is the way to go…It’s time to get your mountain bike out!

At high water, above 2500 CFS commercial boats will flip and smelter rapid can be exciting. In my opinion high water is the only time a commercial trip is worth paying for

At low water, below 700 CFS the rafting can be fun for families with young kids who are looking for a really mellow experience. Low water typically starts around the end of June and last the remainder of the summer

At low water, tubing can be super fun
