Springtime Half Day Rafting in Arizona
Want to go rafting but you’re not sure if you want a full day? Try our Salt River rafting half day trip in the Upper Salt River Canyon. This trip joins our full day trip for an exciting morning filled with challenging class III whitewater. You and your crew start out with a splash as you get soaked with our first exciting rapid, Kiss and Tell.
The half day river rafting trip ends at our private beach where we will return you to the starting point in our shuttle vehicle. If you haven’t had your fill of exhilarating white water you can always upgrade at the last minute to our full day rafting trip and join us for a hot fajita lunch followed by another half day of thrilling whitewater.
If you are looking for a more isolated and truly scenic getaway, consider diving deeper into the spectacular Salt River Wilderness on a 2 Day Expedition, or a 3 Day, 4 Day or 5 Day trip. These multi-day adventures travel through remote canyons full of exciting whitewater and riverside beach campsites.
