Overview

Experience amazing Arizona whitewater with Salt River rafting! Paddle through an incredible 2000-foot deep canyon as you take on thrilling rapids such as “Maytag,” “Overboard” and “Mescal Falls”. The Salt River drops at over 20 feet per mile as it carves though an amazing wilderness canyon. Sonoran Desert scenery and fun filled whitewater make memories to last a lifetime.

Hello. A premium boat provides a smaller guide to guest ratio so it is a really nice benefit for a little more money. The premium boats hold up to 6 guests, while the regular rafts can hold up to 9 plus the guide. Enjoy!
