My son and I signed up for the full-day Kayak trip (ages 52 & 18) or the Ducky as they called it. The staff is very friendly, enthusiastic and ready to make your adventure fun and safe. We had neither one done any rafting or kayaking so we didn't really know what to expect. Being only two of us, we decided on the kayaks so we didn't have to spend the day in a boat with strangers (good or bad). Jessica (Jess), our guide for the day did a good job explaining what to expect and all the things we needed to know (safety and otherwise). It was a good thing we had the full wet suit and splash top because we did spend some in the river (not by choice) as she said we would. The kayaks are inflatable and a novice will end up tipping over at least once (I did twice and my son did three times). Jess took very good care of us on the river, helped when needed and stopped as often as we wanted. We were not expecting it to be as strenuous as it was or to be in the water (other than by choice to swim and cool off). The duckies are hard to steer, for a beginner, anyway and it was hard work. Jess gave us the option to stop at lunch time (the halfway point of our trip) and we decided it would be wise to take her up on the offer. Yes, we were out of shape and not used to the altitude (spent the night before at 10K feet+) and didn't sleep well the night before. Jess prepared "wraps" for us at the Buena Vista Park (our halfway point) which were simple but delicious. She cut up veggies, had turkey or ham and two kinds of cheese. She also had strawberries, chips and salsa and lemonade - all in a cooler that had been dropped off for her. She was a full service guide for sure. Working so hard did make us not really get to enjoy a lot of the scenery but it was a unique adventure my son and I will never forget. Would probably do the raft trip if we had to do it over again, but overall we did have fun.
