Launch Dates for One-day Trips

Upper canyon one-day trips are available almost every day between March and October. Though it's best to reserve your trip well in advance, we can usually accommodate walk-in customers for trips the next day.

River Trips

1 Day Upper Canyon

Location: Upper canyon; 26 miles from Bluff to Mexican Hat

Duration: One day; 8:00 am - 4:30 pm

This is, hands down, the best one-day river trip available in the West. In the morning we make two stops to learn about the Butler Wash petroglyph panel and river house cliff dwelling. We'll enjoy a fresh gourmet lunch under the cottonwoods before entering a limestone chasm for the afternoon, where we'll see desert bighorn sheep and 300 million year-old fossils. A full day and 26 miles in length, this is a great trip for those with limited time.

Price: Adults $175 Kids 12 and under $133; includes taxes and BLM fees


Our one-day adventure is great for archaeology or geology buffs, first time boaters or travelers with limited time. We journey down a 26-mile section of the San Juan river in about 8 hours, making numerous stops to hike to nearby archaeological sites and fossil outcroppings as we travel through a dramatic variety of landscape and history. Most trips see native desert bighorn sheep feeding or bedding immediately adjacent to the river. Waterfowl, raptors and songbirds abound.
