My three grandkids and I tackled the all-day Racecourse under the expert guidance of Kokopelli's Avery, an experienced, well-educated, and witty young lady. The river was flowing at more than 3,100 cubic feet per second, but there was never a moment when we felt out...More

I selected Kokopelli based on their reviews regarding their trips as well as their safety record. They didn't let us down. The trip information and safety instructions at the beginning were thorough and, as it turned out, very useful. I say useful because I wound...More

Time Critical questions. Tomorrow April 23rd, I have an opportunity to Raft with friends but need a few items. Helmet, PFD, Wet Suit. TA says hours are 8A to 6P today and tomorrow. Called no answer, left a phone message. Does Kokopelli rent these without having to rent a whole trip package? Kokopelli phone message says rafting season begins April 28th, so is Kokopelli open and renting yet? Thanks

Hi, galeie. What would you like to know about this attraction? What is the latest we can do a rafting trip? We will be available from 3:30 pm on 6/15/17, staying at Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza. Is location an issue?
