Looking for a way to wake up that is even better than coffee? Join our morning IK trip! Inflatable kayaking is one of the best and most exciting of Aspen’s activities! Inflatable kayaks (also called Duckies) are ideal for people looking for a little more excitement and who want to be in control of their own craft on the river. Each person will have their own inflatable kayak, and there will be one or two guides on this non-traditional Roaring Fork rafting trip.

This sport is for self-sufficient people who like to control their own destinies. If you have a family or group of friends with mixed interests and abilities, we can combine a rafting and ducky trip so that everyone is happy! The Basalt Mountain section is ideal for ducky trips. The rapids are pool drop, so there is plenty of time to pick up the pieces at the bottom of the rapids!

There are fun and challenging rapids for the adventurous duckier, but these rapids are also easily skirted by those who are just learning. Kids under 12 may need to ride in a Ducky with an adult. All participants will receive a thorough briefing before the trip to learn paddling and maneuvering techniques and well as self-rescue tips in case things don’t go as planned.

Any trip can be made private and customized for your group.

What’s Included

The raft trip, shuttle, splash gear, wetsuit, snacks and lunch (when specified). Photos are not included but can be purchased online after the trip!

What to Wear Rafting

We suggest wearing quick drying clothing such as non-cotton shorts and t-shirt or bathing suit. Be sure to bring waterproof sunscreen (you will be rafting at 9,000 feet where the sun is intense!), sunglasses with a retaining device, and comfortable walking shoes. We will provide you with neoprene booties, so your shoes will not be going in the river. Bring a towel and a change of clothes for the ride home.

Our shuttles will act as your mobile locker room.  Everything that is not going on the water will stay on the van!  It will be manned at all times or locked throughout your voyage to ensure your stuff will be there upon your return.  

We provide splash gear on all of our trips, and wetsuits and helmets when appropriate.

Duckie (Inflatable Kayak) Trip Reviews

5 star ratingDuckies adventures We had a great Duckie tour with Brad today. Awesome guide to have, would 10/10 recommend a tour with him. He was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to float down the river with. If you’re looking for something fun to do, definitely go with a Duckie tour! You won’t regret it!!

5 star ratingSo much fun – and the season isn’t over yet! We had a great time on our ducky (inflatable kayak) trip with Aspen Whitewater. Scott, Chandler and Quinn were great guides and made the trip really fun. I’d rafted before but never used a kayak on whitewater so I was a little nervous but Scott gave us great directions and helped us navigate the water. The scenery was beautiful and the day was just perfect. Although it’s late in the season (late August) you can raft for another month (they provide wetsuits) and we couldn’t have had a better experience.

5 star ratingGreat ride on the duckies We thoroughly enjoyed our duckie trip with Spencer and Andreas. We enjoyed being in control of our own raft and learned some things about steering our individual rafts. A nice change if you have gone rafting in a large raft with many people. They provide a wet suit so no one gets cold, but in reality the water was very refreshing. A shout out to Victoria also, who answers your calls and questions and is probably the nicest person you will ever speak with over the phone. A great first impression. Well done guys!
