Take Your Thrill to the Next Level On the Rapids With Inflatable Kayaks

Getting up close and personal with the water is entirely possible when you travel down the river in an inflatable kayak.

Getting up close and personal with the water is entirely possible when you travel down the river in an inflatable kayak.

Rafting has a certain kind of charm that comes with teamwork, a bumpy ride, and being exposed to the elements.  If you’ve ever been rafting, you know that it’s absolutely thrilling to head down a river while you try your best not to capsize.  But did you know you can make the whitewater experience even more exciting?  Getting up close and personal with the water is entirely possible when you travel down the river in an inflatable kayak.  It’s the closest you can get to a rapid while still controlling your movements.  Read on to find out why inflatable kayaks are the best way to travel.

They’re safer than you think

Inflatables, as we’ve mentioned before on our blog, are sturdy and reliable.  They can take more of a beating than you might realize!  Whitewater inflatables are designed to crash into rocks at high speeds, and because of their PVC lining, they can certainly handle it.  You don’t need to worry about it popping on you.  Not only this, but just because they lack a cockpit doesn’t mean they lack safety.  You won’t be able to roll, that’s true; but you can always hop back into an inflatable with ease, and you won’t have to fumble with a skirt.

They’re more exciting

Rafting gives you a rush of adrenaline, but only kayaks can get you sitting on the water.  Being water-level as you go down a rapid is an entirely new experience.  It brings a whole new sense of adventure and fun.  Control your boat with ease and feel the water.  Imagine being rushed down a rapid at high speeds, while you make precise movements and follow the flow of the river.  There’s nothing quite like it!

They’re available for anyone

Inflatables are easy to pack into a car and take wherever you want to go, even if you don’t own a huge SUV.  But also, Southwest Raft & Jeep offers the best rentals in the Durango area.  If you’re unsure about purchasing your own inflatable kayak, we’ve got your answer.  And if you’re too hesitant to take the leap into a river, we’ve got flatwater kayaks to rent, as well.  If you find out you really love this way of experiencing the river, which you definitely will, we offer new and used inflatables for you to purchase.

There’s no excuse to not hop in an inflatable kayak and try out this adrenaline rush.  We provide everything you need to get out on the river this weekend and enjoy it up-close and personal.
