Trip Details

Grab a friend and experience the famous Arkansas River Advanced Rafting Numbers section in a mini 9-foot raft! The two of you plus a guide will hit the most continuous section of Arkansas River whitewater. As you can imagine, the smaller size of the raft makes the waves, rapids, and holes much bigger, better, and wetter.

The Numbers section is continuous fun and sets up perfectly for a mini raft. The Numbers is a very technical and steep section of whitewater. With a small raft you can run alternative lines and shoot through channels of whitewater you could not get a full sized raft through. This is a fun but demanding trip so please make sure you and your friend are up for paddling with your guide. The Numbers Wyldride is a great way to see and navigate the river with a friend. Check out our description of the river on our Numbers half day page.

This half-day trip is available morning or afternoon. This is a physically demanding advanced to advanced+ rafting trip so good physical condition is recommended and a minimum age of 15 years is required. 

Class IV rafting too much for you? Try the regular Arkansas River Numbers rafting trips or one of our Brown’s Canyon rafting trips.
