Try something new. Paddle an inflatable kayak down the Arkansas River in Central Colorado with KODI’s Big Bend Half Day Duckie trip.

Go solo or paddle with a friend in an inflatable one or two-person kayak, also known as a duckie. Big Bend, with its calm water and mild rapids, is the perfect section of the Arkansas River to maneuver your own boat. You’ll love paddling your duckie around meandering turns and through splashy class II to class III rapids.

KODI Rafting’s Big Bend Half Day Duckie trip is an excellent choice for those looking for a bit more adventure. Please note, you won’t be totally alone. All duckies follow a guide.

Add a duckie to any raft trip. Cost is $40 for half a day and $80 for a full day. Anyone paddling a duckie must be 14 years or older.

Cool fact: Worried about getting a tear in your duckie? Don’t! Inflatable kayaks are actually known as unsinkable boats. Even when they are completely filled with water, they won’t sink. Each inflatable kayak will always have more than one air chamber so even in the unlikely event that one should completely deflate, you’ll still float.

*Check-in is required 30 minutes prior to departure time.

**Wetsuits, booties, and splash tops are not included on this trip but are available for rent.
