Get Your Adrenaline Pumping

Wilderness Aware’s Half-Day Salt River White water Rafting tour isn’t a gentle rafting tour; this is five miles downriver on class III rapids! This half-day adventure is just enough of a challenge to be exciting and fun, but short enough to not over tax any newbie whitewater rafters. The half-day Salt River whitewater rafting tour is their most popular tour adventure for a reason; it delivers the thrill of whitewater rafting through beautiful country in a short amount of time.

This section of the Salt River drops an average of 25-feet per mile and cuts through picturesque red rock canyons along the way. You’ll journey from the forests of the Tonto National Forest down into the Sonoran Desert with its towering Saguaro cactus and prickly pear cactus. Experience the Sonoran Desert from a perspective only Salt River rafting can provide.

Start your whitewater rafting adventure at Wilderness Aware’s base between Globe and Show Low (in east central Arizona, approximately 2-1/2 hours east of Phoenix). Your guide will brief you on how to paddle through whitewater and basic river safety before you start out. Once out on the river, their knowledgeable guides will keep your paddling coordinated and guide you through the rapids as you speed down the river. Your half-day whitewater adventure ends at a private beach where you will be shuttled back to your starting point. (Or, you can upgrade on the spot to the full day rafting adventure for more excitement!)
