Packing Your Gear

Come prepared. You will be travelling from the desert floor to mountain tops, and back down again. Temperatures can vary greatly, so it is best to be prepared for all types of weather conditions. We have put together a recommended gear list for you, which will help keep you comfortable while enjoying the outdoors.

What to Bring
  • Shorts or pants and shirt (not cotton)
  • Dress in layers during cool weather or winter months
  • River sandals or water shoes
  • Swimsuit (wear under clothes)
  • Hat and sunglasses
  • Camera and plenty of film
  • Extra batteries
  • Towel (optional)
  • Spending cash for souvenirs & tips

Price Includes
  • High performance kayak with rudder for easy steering
  • Paddle and Life Vest
  • All safety equipment
  • Professional Guide
  • Basic paddling instruction
  • Lunch and snacks
  • Bottled water
  • A dry bag for your essentials
  • In-park transfers
  • Hotel transportation
  • Gratuity not included

NOTES: This supply list covers the Colorado River guided kayak tour in Black Canyon. Based on our years of experience, we suggest items to consider for your trip - but you should bring what will best suit your needs. The desert can be cool in the mornings, and extremely hot in the middday sun. Summer temperatures are searing, and you will want protection from the sun. If you have any questions, please contact us and we will help you find the right gear.
