Our guide, Kia, was amazing! It was just our group (4 people) and her as our guide and it was so much fun. It was 3 of the 4 members 1st time paddle boarding, and Kia was very helpful with teaching us a few things before we went in. The water was quiet and floating down the Rio was so peaceful. Definitely a great experience and great company.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Kia's great, and the river is definitely serene (most of the time, anyway!)

took the Coronado section on kayaks and experienced a relaxing, well organized outing with great views of the mountains and bosque with plenty of birds, hawks and herons along the way.
Daytime temps were in the 90s but was very comfortable on the water.

Thanks for the review! Especially appreciate the comment about the temperature difference on the water - every summer folks call and question the heat, and they're skeptical when I try to explain that the river acts like a swamp cooler. We've had dozens of comments over the years about how comfortable it is on the water on a mid-90's day!
