KAYAK SUPPORT

A PRICELESS ADDITION

Our team of professional kayakers provide a priceless service. Whether its one raft or nine we have a support kayaker paddle along. Royal Gorge Rafting is the only company on the Arkansas River to exclusively run kayak support with every trip down the Royal Gorge as well as on the Bighorn Canyon during the high water run off. At peak flows in the Royal Gorge we employ multiple kayakers to join your tour for extra support as well as to shoot photos of your adventure. Your kayaker will give you specific instructions prior to getting under way with your days adventure as to how they can assist you in a support scenario.

BENEFITS

There are many benefits to providing kayak support. Number one is our clients safety. Imagine you are separated from your raft, although unlikely it is still a possibility. A support kayaker is able to assist you in ways that are priceless!

KAYAK PHOTOGRAPHY

A PERSONALIZED PROGRAM

Our kayakers are the heart and soul of our photography program. As most of the other outfitters utilize a riverside based photographer, they are limited to only a few pictures of each boat on any given run. Our photographers however are able to get many shots throughout the trip not limited to action shots in the rapids, but scenic and candid group photos as well to truly capture the substance and spirit of your adventure. Your kayaker starts taking photos from the time you arrive and continues until the time you depart.
AFTER RIVER ADVENTURES

After your adventure we will present the photos of you trip in entertaining slideshows on big screen televisions in the fun & lively White Water Bar & Grill. Here you can take in the days events and imbibe in the good times had with friends and family.

SWIMS HAPPEN


You should know. Rafts can and will flip over at times, you can fall out of a raft. This is part of white water rafting and this is why we employ our team of kayakers. They can assist you and your crew if and when a raft fully capsizes or you take an unexpected swim. A kayaker running support can also retrieve lost paddles dropped in the river. Up a creek without a paddle? We prefer not.

VERSATILE MANEUVERING

A kayaker can exit the river at nearly any given point and hike his or her kayak to a new location. This is important as swimmers could end up on opposite side of the river from their raft. A kayaker can assist swimmers with a bow or stern rescue maneuver or they can instruct you as to where to swim. This in itself is more often than not substantial enough help and is what most people need to alert them to swim to shore or to another raft.
