Paddling down a river requires an oar, just as paddling through life requires an orator narrating your actions. Let it be known with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $37 for a full-day Salt River whitewater-rafting trip with lunch for one (a $75 value)

Skilled paddlers guide groups 9 miles down the Salt River, maneuvering around boulders and through Class III and IV whitewater rapids that are fueled by spring runoff from the White Mountains. When splashing subsides, groups can gaze at the surrounding landscape's mesh of saguaro cacti, hawks and bald eagles, granite gorges, and wildflowers.
Though the staff supplies a shuttle service, lifejackets, wetsuits or splash gear, and a barbecue meal with drinking water for lunch, guests must bring some supplies of their own. See the complete schedule of launch dates.
