Raft the Best Run Based on Water Levels

One of the beautiful things about Mother Nature is that her conditions can’t be planned. When it comes to rafting, this means water levels can affect the intensity and length of your trip–and that’s where the Best Run of the Day comes in. Choose this trip if you’re not set on one particular river section and simply want the best adventure possible! We check water levels each day, and we’ll make sure to put you on a river section that will give you the best chance at rafting the rapids you’ve been dreaming of.

This trip is available Sunday-Friday all season long except for The Dries release dates.

How to Dress for Rafting

What’s Included

Transportation is covered from the resort to the river and back again. We’ll also provide all your rafting equipment (helmet, personal flotation device or PFD, paddle, and boat) and a complimentary beverage.

Admission to the pool is included on the day of your trip.

What to Bring

Bring any medication you need throughout the day, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a change of clothes to keep at the resort to change into after your trip. Guides carry small, waterproof bags to stow necessary medications. Depending on the time of year and the weather, you may also want a synthetic layer. If necessary, wetsuits and splash jackets are available for rent. Call us to book those, too.

Trip Time

This is a Full Day Trip.
Depending on the day’s water level, you’ll spend between 4-6 hours on the water, plus shuttle time to and from the river. Trip length and intensity vary based on water levels, which change throughout the season.

Your Boat & Guide

Our standard, 16-foot rafts comfortably seat eight rafters and one river guide. Your river guide sits in the back of the raft, where they’ll give instructions for when and how to paddle through each rapid and share their expertise about our rivers and region. Learn more about our guides.
