Hop in one of their 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.
As you cruise down the Verde you’ll find yourself immersed in a whole new world as you float past 900 year old ruins of the ancient Sinagua Culture. Under the cool canopy of native willow trees you’ll take in the rich ecology of the forested riparian zone where over 75 percent of Arizona’s biodiversity thrives. This wilderness environment is composed of red rocks, canyons, lush desert forests and a wide variety of unique wildlife. It’s a magical place that you have to see to believe.
