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.

What’s Included

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

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