Duckie Float Trips

If you’re looking for a Vail area whitewater adventure that involves doing something a bit different from the usual raft trip, try a Timberline Tours duckie float trip on the Upper Colorado River. A duckie is an open inflatable kayak, and you can either paddle your own single-person duckie or share a two-person duckie with a friend. Duckie float trips are great fun for the whole family, and the Upper Colorado River provides the perfect location for learning how to paddle in a place that will awe you with its stunning natural beauty. duckie float trips
