About Our River Trips...

All Keys Guide & Outfitting, LLC river trips start by picking you up at your hotel or predetermined location in the departure city.  After the short ride to the launch point, your guide will give an orientation and safety briefing.  Once our comfortable high float life jackets are fit we push off heading down river.  In addition to floating down river most multi-day trips will include a hiking stop during the day to visit archeological, historic and geologic sites.  Late afternoon will find us pulling off river to our camp.  Camps are wilderness style and comfortable at the same time.  Hand wash, dish wash, trash and toilet systems are carried on all trips.  Use your time in camp to unwind, hike on your own, play horse shoes or just visit.  

All trips include riverside lunches and our multi-day trips include dinner and breakfast at each camp.  Dinners are hearty with steaks, chicken or chops often on the menu.  Breakfasts include favorites like pancakes, eggs and bacon.  We offer a variety of river craft on our trips, large rafts for those who would like the guide to run the boat and Inflatable Kayaks aka "duckies" for those who want to captain their own craft.  With the guides instruction these "duckies" allow many first-time rafters the oportunity to run their own boat while still being fully supported. Guides will handle the work, packing and running the boats, leading side hikes, and preparing delicious meals. After the trip we transport you back to your hotel.
