Inflatable Kayak Adventures
The Inflatable Kayak or "Duckie", is the signature craft of Adventure Bound. We offer these 2-man crafts to our guests at no additional charge and supply enough to
outfit the entire group!
Our inflatable kayaks are highly stable and maneuverable boats that allow even the "beginner" rafter an enjoyable experience. Many people use them for the entire trip. Some like to use
them in the calm stretches, while others enjoy riding in the larger oar boats. The choice is yours! Kids and teens spend a great deal of their river trip paddling in our duckies.
Inflatable Kayaking through Desolation Canyon - large image
Inflatable kayaking is for any river-runner who desires a variety of whitewater experience including the white water rapids of the Colorado River through
Cataract Canyon, the Yampa River, or the
Green River through Lodore Canyon and Desolation Canyon.
Do we have to pay extra to use your inflatable kayaks on our trip?
No, we include 2-person inflatable kayaks on our trips at no additional charge. They will be available at the beginning of your trip — enough so that everyone can share the ride
with a partner.
If we start out in an inflatable kayak, do we have to stay in it for the whole trip?
Absolutely not. You're always welcome to hop aboard a large raft if you just need a break, get too tired, or find that paddling your own boat is just not your cup of tea.

Can we start out in a big raft and then use inflatable kayaks later?
That depends. You're welcome to start out in either a raft or one of our inflatable kayaks. However, if you think you may want to try an inflatable kayak at some point, we ask that
you start out in one at the beginning of your trip. This allows us to take only the craft we require without having to haul excess boats along just in case someone wants to give it a try later. If you do
start out riding on a big raft, chances are you'll find a vacant spot in an inflatable kayak later on, as others take breaks or decide to ride on the rafts.
Can we use inflatable kayaks on every trip you offer, and at any time during the season?
Our goal is to provide inflatable kayaks on each and every trip we run. However, the safety of our guests always comes first. Consequently, there will be times and places where we
decide inflatable kayaks are inappropriate. Those decisions rest with our management and your trip leader, taking into account the local water conditions, various risk factors, and the demonstrated skill
of each participant.
Our skilled guides will show you how to make kayaking fun and enjoyable!
