Rented SUP boards for myself and two friends to take out for the day. The SUP boards and all equipment was in excellent condition! The owner gave good, thorough instructions on how everything worked. We will definitely be back to rent from here again! If you haven’t tried to SUP or kayak, do it! It is so much fun!

An excellent way to spend the morning. The river was gorgeous--relaxing and fun. We rented kayaks and found them very easy to handle. Our guide knew the river well and was able to share lots of information about geography, history, wildlife, etc. Before the trip, we were worried about parking at the end of the course and Ubering to the put-in (a Covid-restriction wrinkle), but the the maps and coordinates QW shared were precise and easy to use, and QW were super helpful on the phone, too. We had a wonderful experience. Strongly recommend.

Thanks for the nice comments. I'm happy to report that we can now provide shuttle services again, although ride sharing services remain an option for those uncomfortable riding in our shuttle vehicles. Thanks again for joining us!

Oh, the serenity and beauty of the Rio Grande river from Algodones to Alameda Bridge. I've lived alongside the river all my life and never knew one could kayak or raft down it within and just outside of Albuquerque. Thank you Quiet Waters Paddling Adventures for giving us this wonderful experience only 30 mins from my home. I can't post photos since my phone fell in the river. Totally worth it!! Everyone should try it.

Called this business on Saturday afternoon, left a message and received a call back within an hour! Was able to get details, secure a rental of two kayaks, fill out waivers over the email/internet and pick up our kayaks that evening for the next day river trip!! Super helpful, easy to work with, reasonable prices, knowledgeable about kayaking the area. Drop off on Sunday afternoon was equally easy. Thanks Mike for your help and we hope to do business with you again soon.
