What kinds of rapids will we be paddling? How are rapids rated?

Depending on flows and the section of river we run, most trips will paddle a couple of class II rapids and several class III rapids. In high water most of the rapids are class III to class III+ which can be waves larger than 6’ tall!

At low flows we run a different section of river through a canyon where the rapids are more technical class III and one class IV rapid.
