Just finished a 4 day, 3 night float down the river at Boquillas Canyon. In a word -- stunning. Charlie was responsive to our emails. His website covers all the stuff you should take on a trip. Our guide, Kat, was wonderful. Very skilled, and cooked us some great hot meals for breakfast and dinner. What is it like, you may wonder, if you've never done something like this before? Pictures can't do the landscape justice. Much of the time is spent craning your necks up to look at the canyon and cliff walls. You'll paddle a lot and get kind of sore (my hips from sitting in the canoe!) but it's so worth it and forgotten very quickly afterwards. We timed our visit to coincide with a new moon and the dark skies were phenomenal. We didn't see anyone else other than our trip mates for 3 solid days. When we got hot, we swam in the river. It's silty -- so what? It didn't coat our skin and it felt great. We had the opportunity to explore a slot canyon. Wow, what a rush! Kat picked up trash when she found it, and we found ourselves doing the same as the pristine landscape cries out to remain so. Some of the best moments are when you stop paddling and just float, listening to the quiet sounds. No airplanes buzzing overhead. Nothing but the breeze and the sound of the river, maybe a braying donkey or the nicker of a wild horse. I can't recommend it more highly. I'd do it again ... possibly end of September rather than early due to the warm temps. Thanks, Angell Expeditions, for such a treat!

Angell Expeditions took us (family of four, two teenagers) on a four day/three night adventure through Boquillas Canyon on the Rio Grande. We spent our time on the river with our amazing guide, Sam, who took care of us with a great amount of knowledge and patience. Camping under the stars in a dark sky region allowed us to see the night sky from a different lens. The river gave us a break from the heat whenever we needed it and we all had a fantastic time. I would highly recommend Angell Expeditions to anyone looking for a well organized and personalized adventure in Big Bend or surrounding areas!

Angell Expeditions provided a great half-day canoe trip for eight of us through beautiful canyons in Big Bend State Park. Charlie, the owner, was professional and responsive during the booking process and provided detailed information about the meeting site, what to bring, etc. Our guide, Sam, was fun and knowledgeable about the area and it was evident she loves this unique part of the country. I highly recommend this company!
