River Trips

High Water Advisement

Be advised the Rio Grande is running at a 15 year high with class 4 rapids on the Racecourse section posing an elevated risk for flips and swims.

At levels above 2500 cfs, the minimum age is 10 years old. At levels above 3500 cfs, the minimum age is 13 years old. The Rio Grande Float or Rio Chama Full Day are great alternatives for children age 5 and up offering a great introduction to whitewater rafting without the consequences of class 4 rapids.

We encourage you to call our office before booking children, elderly, or anyone with concerns of class 4 whitewater to discuss current conditions, forecasted conditions for June and July, and alternatives to the Racecourse half-day or Lower Gorge Racecourse full-day. Our number is 505-983-3734.

On behalf of the entire Kokopelli staff, we look forward to paddling with you!
