Santa Fe River Kayaking Companies

New Mexico River Adventures

New Mexico River Adventures offers both instruction for beginners and opportunities for advanced paddlers. If you have never been whitewater kayaking before, take one of their beginner instruction classes. You can choose to take the 2-day kayaking clinic or opt for a custom lesson. There is also the option to use an inflatable kayak instead of the usual hard, plastic crafts. The inflatables, also known as “duckies,” are very stable and easily maneuvered making them easy for beginners but also desirable for advanced kayakers looking for a little more control over their craft.

New Mexico Kayak Instruction

New Mexico Kayak Instruction offers both kayak lessons and rentals. If you have never experienced Santa Fe River kayaking before, we recommend you start with some instruction! Let them teach you everything you need to know about whitewater paddling so you’ll feel comfortable on your own. This company also has the largest selection of rentals in the state. Rent one to go on the river or travel to one of the many lakes in the area to have a calming, scenic experience.

Experience the Santa Fe River on a Raft!

If Santa Fe River kayaking isn’t your style, you can always experience the water on a raft. Both New Mexico River Adventures and Kokopelli Rafting Adventures in Santa Fe, NM, offer thrilling whitewater rafting trips for every level of experience. Let knowledgeable guides take you through the rapids as you enjoy the scenery around you! During the slow spots, you can sit back and relax as your guide tells you all about the history of the river.
