More Mellow Family-Friendly Rafting Trips
If you’re looking for a way to get on the river without the whitewater, check out our scenic family rafting trips offered twice daily. These Arkansas River float trips are geared toward anyone looking for a mild introduction to whitewater or just a relaxing time on the river filled with fantastic scenery, wildlife, and bird watching — it’s an all-around great time! Smaller waves and splashes keep it cool and fun. Our half day float lasts about 2.5 hours and goes right through historic downtown Salida, while our shorter, 1/4 day is a great 1 hour introduction to being on the river and floats right up to our riverside Bar and Grill, the Drift In.
For those seeking a more relaxed experience, our scenic floats provide the perfect blend of tranquility and adventure. Drift along the gentle currents as you take in the breathtaking scenery that Salida has to offer. It’s an ideal choice for families, nature enthusiasts, or anyone looking to unwind while surrounded by the unparalleled beauty of the Arkansas River Valley.
