Dead River Recreational & Inflatable Kayak Releases
Family Rafting or Aggressive Inflatable Kayak Trip
The Dead River runs throughout the summer at lower water flows called recreational releases. Using smaller boats and inflatable kayaks these releases offer a technical run with endless play spots-combining a day of intermediate rafting with aggressive inflatable kayak paddling. This trip is ideal for young families with a minimum age of 6 for the family rafting and a minimum age of 16 for the Inflatable Kayak Trip. We often bring inflatable kayaks along on the rafting trip to accommodate both young children and the older more adventurous family members on the same trip.
This Dead River whitewater rafting trip also includes a complete homemade meal and a slide and video presentation.

This is a rigorous 16 mile trip with lots of action. It is our most difficult inflatable kayak trip and is not for the faint of heart. You can bring along a raft to make this trip easier and appropriate for a broader group (except for lowest water releases listed under “Kayak Only” below).
