Double Extreme Shoshone Rafting

Quick Details

Adult Ages 13+

Experience the Biggest Rapids in the Smallest Raft in Colorado!

Our “Extreme” trips are in our smallest 12′ rafts for maximum excitement and fun! Conquer the Shoshone rapids twice in this paddle only raft where your guide will depend on you for the ride of your life! A staff favorite and one of our most exciting adventures. You will run all the rapids including Baptism, Tuttle’s Tumble, Tombstone, The Wall, and Maneater. Then we’ll take out as soon as the rapids finish and then go back and run them all again, taking a more challenging line the second time. A double shot of the best rapids in the area!

Smaller rafts make the rapids more challenging and are perfect for smaller groups. Our 12′ rafts typically hold 2-6 guests, so your small group will probably have a raft to yourselves.

Please keep in mind that flips and involuntary swims are far more common on this trip. This trip is only appropriate for guests prepared to potentially swim class IV rapids.
