Rio Grande River, Big Bend National Park, Texas/ Mexico Border
This 33 mile float is best done in 4 days as this gives time to hike the side canyons, swim, and read a good book. You start the trip at Rio Grande Village and end at LaLinda, Heath Canyon.
This canyon has gentle rapids, making it an ideal family float. Our minimum age for this trip is 5 years old.
Before ascending into the canyon you get great views of the Sierra Del Carmens mountain range with it famous peak "elpico".
For most of the year we are canoeing. During the "summer monsoon" the river rises and we float downstream in rafts.
We bring just about everything; chairs, tables, stove with a propane tank, coolers with fresh food, water, tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, toilet, hand wash, and a fire pan.
Boquillas Canyon has numerous nice campsites. I enjoy watching the canyon walls illuminate as the morning sunshine starts to strike them.
It is always fun to see who spots the "rabbit ears" first!
Around every river bend is another stunning view!
We customize the menu for picky kids, vegetarians, vegans, & gluten free.
Nice weather in the Chihuahuan Desert makes this trip an option from September- May.
Come and explore the King of Canyons with us on a fully guided trip! We also do boat rentals with all the gear and can arrange a shuttle if you prefer to do this trip privately. Feel free to call for more details on all our river trips, hiking and backpacking expeditions, and trips across the border to Mexico.
