River Cruises

For those interested in meeting up with other paddlers, Colorado Whitewater offers free river cruises arranged by volunteers. These trips allow you to step it up and try a new section of river with the support of experienced lead and sweeps who know that section. Or if you have a favorite run, then simply come along and have fun with a group of boaters! The trips are not a teaching or training exercise, and members who participate are responsible for their own conduct and safety. 

Learn more about leading or participating on a cruise.

In order to participate in any cruise, you must be a CW member and sign a waiver

2024 Cruise Schedule:

Please sign up using the links below to confirm your interest in joining one of our cruises. The cruise leaders will be following up with details.  The cruise leader needs to confirm skill level is appropriate before confirming your participation in the cruise.  Knowing who is interested will help volunteers know how many leaders and sweeps would make the event fun for all involved.  Please click on the link for the cruise you would like to show interest. For all cruises, please have some experience running the class of whitewater that is listed with each cruise. If you have any questions about the skill level required for the cruise you wish to attend, please contact the cruise leader for that cruise, or send an email to cruises@coloradowhitewater.org.

Most cruise leaders are not yet known. As events get closer and volunteers step up, they will reach out to those who have shown interest and confirm details of the activity.

Note: All cruises are subject to rescheduling or cancellation depending on river conditions and availability of volunteer leads and sweeps. If you would like to volunteer for any of our cruises, please contact: cruises@coloradowhitewater.org.
