Classic River Run on the Verde
  • Classic River Run on the Verde

    Come paddle the peaceful, friendly stretch of the Verde River on this 2 to 3-hour kayak tour from Clarkdale. With just enough current to get a taste of river running without the risk of more treacherous areas down river, beginner and veteran river runners alike enjoy the scenery and opportunities to cool off in this wonderful run. Choice of departure time and all necessary equipment is included.

    After checking in, you'll be fitted for life vests, finish any necessary paperwork and enjoy a short, scenic ride to the river. During the ride, your driver will point out local sites and overview of the river experience is shared. Once at the riverside, you'll be given a short safety speech and instruction on entering and exiting the boats and paddling technique.

    The Verde River itself offers a fun little beginner drop to put your newly acquired skills to the test right out of the practice area. On the first half of the paddle, you'll leisurely paddle through some classic riparian terrain with plenty of flora and fauna to see along the way. You'll have lots of opportunity to practice your boat handling skills and an opportunity to swim. Many species of birds, turtles, river otters and other animals are often spotted. At the halfway point, you'll break for restroom break and to reload on water or snacks.

    From here, the remainder of the river offers a bit more challenge and excitement. The two class two rapids and a couple of other class one fast parts are all here to offer some thrills without being too intimidating. Kayaks are specifically chosen for this river are very stable and offer lots of control in the rapids. The waves and faster current offer a nice change of pace to end the trip on a high note of beginner friendly fast drops to pump you up for whatever comes next.

    Finally, at the take out at Tuzigoot, you will be returned to the starting location or your hotel where they can change, shower, or otherwise prepare for the rest of their day. If the lunch or dinner options are selected, you will be taken to the Desert Diamond Distillery for a catered meal and personalized tasting with drinks.

      We had more fun than expected. The tour guides and staff were professional and had everything ready to go when we arrived. Their directions and explanations were easy to follow. Their chattiness and stories were fun to listen to as they gave us info about the locality. I didn’t feel our safety was ever in question. They stayed with us and made sure everyone was safe and staying with the group.
      I would recommend this attraction and would definitely do it again!
