We a so excited that Glenwood Springs, CO is the site for the 2011 National Speleological Society Convention. We’re not only excited for them, because they’ll have a wonderful time here exploring our caves. We’re excited to see friends and family coming to town with the convention, and to meet new ones! So we hope all involved with NSS 2011 convention enjoy all there is to this wonderful area. Including these Special Rafting Rates with Up tha Creek Expeditions.
We will have three different departure times; 9am, 1pm, 4:30pm. All trips will meet at the High School campground 30 min. prior to trip departure. We use small paddle style rafts that are designed for maximum fun, not maximum capacity like every other company. We can fit 7 people per boat, and everyone is involved in the maneuvering, NO big boats, NO big oars, this makes for the most fun possible!
HALF DAY TRIPS:
Colorado River – Due to high water conditions the Colorado is a MILD and fast trip at the moment. The shoshone rapids through the canyon are closed to commercial rafting due to high flows. Everything below that is Class II even at high flow. We call this our express trip as it is quick and easy. Minimum requirement of 35lbs.
