Black Canyon Float Trip down the Colorado

We are thinking of booking this trip but wondering how hot it is going to be around August 25th. Anyone done this trip in August?

It's been a few years since I took a raft trip on the Colorado, however the heat doesn't bother you as much on the water, since the water stays pretty cool. However a hat and sunscreen are must haves. It's really a nice trip....giving you a different perspective from the river.

Never done the raft trip, but I have kayaked down there many times. Its a great trip. The air temps are hot, but the water runs about 52-54 degrees below the dam. Feels great.

It will be very hot. The water is cold, but the sun fries the skin. I'd recommend long sleeves for this trip actually.

I see the rafts come into willow beach quite often. Lots of people who don't take precautions wind up badly sunburned. But having done the trip myself, I can say its really fun. Enjoy.

I agree on the long sleeve shirt...something light weight and drys fairly quick.

I would love to do the raft trip again. Have a great trip!
