Dead River Release Dates

Dead River Release Dates

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 photo presentation.
