Rafting

Pagosa's Premier Rafting Trips

Rafting Season Opens May 1, 2023!

The Best Rafting in Pagosa Springs

May and June are normally the prime months for whitewater rafting in Pagosa Springs. River flows typically peak in mid to late May and this is when to find the biggest whitewater thrills. By early-June, the weather gets warmer and river levels drop, making trips more family-friendly.  By July the river in Pagosa is normally below rafting flows and we offer Whitewater Tubing trips until Labor Day weekend

What the River Flow Means For Rafting

The River Gauge in Pagosa gives flow in CFS – cubic feet per seconds.  River levels can fluctuate daily based on snow melt and rainfall.

  • below 300 = tubing
  • 300-700 = low
  • 700-1400 = medium
  • 1400-2200 = high
  • 2200-up= really high
