Thanksgiving on the Colorado River

Join us for our annual Thanksgiving adventure on the water. We spend four glorious days paddling flat water on the lower Colorado River.

This is a great opportunity to learn to be self-sufficient in a kayak.  For those novice kayakers, we teach you how to pack all the gear you need for our multi-day adventure.  Each kayak holds approximately 2.5 backpacks worth of gear.

For experienced kayakers, this is a fantastic opportunity to explore the desert and mountainous area of the Colorado River where it flows between Arizona and California.

We start our 40-mile journey in the Cibola National Wildlife Refuge and continue through the Imperial National Wildlife Refuge.  Along the way we camp in four different remote camps, hike slot canyons, and visit historic mines and homesites.

We have a scrumptious Thanksgiving feast on Thursday evening.  Family Kayak Adventure Center will provide the holiday turkey and we each bring part of the holiday meal to share.

Costs are $359 per person. Package includes kayaks and paddling gear, camping/parking/shuttle fees and instructor/guide. Both single and double kayaks are available. Round trip ground transportation from San Diego is provided for the first 7 persons to sign up. $100 discount with your own kayak.

Participants are responsible for their own camping gear, food, and drinking water. A detailed itinerary and equipment list is provided.
