Choose Paddles Or Oars

Most rafters choose to actively participate in the experience with the Paddle option. Your guide will teach you the paddle strokes and you will become a part of the “team”. Children under 12 years old do not usually paddle actively. They may get to paddle in easier sections of the trip if they can reach the water. Adults wanting to “go for it” should select the Paddle option.  Paddle Raft on the Arkansas River
If you have small children or just want to paddle some of the time, select the Paddle Assist option. The guide can control the boat the entire time with oars. Oar Paddle Assist Combination on the Arkansas River
The Oar option is for those who do not wish to paddle at all and would like the guide to row. You just sit and enjoy the whitewater and scenery! Oar Boat on the Arkansas River
