Kayaking in the Desert? You gotta paddle it!Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Clarkdale Kayak Co. by using our Clarkdale trip planner.
Hop in one of our top of the line, hard-shell kayaks and cruise down the scenic Verde River. These boats feature a sit-on-top design that makes them comfortable, stable and most of all, safe. Kayaking the Verde River @ Clarkdale is an absolute blast! It's a fun, interactive experience where you get to cool off and learn about the unique history of the Verde River.
This stretch of the Verde is great for everyone. It's a Class 1 river, so there isn't any true whitewater. Along the way you can expect a variety of exhilarating little chutes and riffles, interspersed between scenic, tranquil pools. Most of the river is shallow enough to easily stand up on the rare occasion that you might tip out of your boat. And trust us, it is the rare occasion. At the onset of the trip, your ACA certified guide will instruct you on basic paddling and boat control skills. From there your guide will offer you as much or as little assistance as needed.
Clarkdale Kayak Co. reviews
Highly recommend CKC for guided Verde River guided kayak trips. Fun, safe. They’ve thought of everything! more »
My husband and I plus our two recent college grads really enjoyed the 3P trip with Bill. He had many interesting tidbits about the area and did a great job guiding us down the river. more »
Our guide was amazing. Good trip and not horribly priced even for a last minute trip. This is a must !!
Just got back from a kayak adventure with the Clarkdale Kayak Company. Had a wonderful time with our very knowledgeable guides Darren and Scott. They both made sure it was a fun and safe afternoon.
