Age Recommendations

Rafting with children

Children are not all the same and water conditions vary, so please feel free to call us if you have questions about taking your children rafting.


We recommend that children be 8 years old or older to raft Brown's Canyon and 10 years old or older to raft the Narrows. (Depending on water conditions, younger children can often do these trips if they hang on to a safety line rather than paddle.) Rafters should be at least 16 years old and in good physical condition to raft the Numbers at higher water levels and 14 years old and in good physical conditio to raft the Numbers at moderate water levels.
