Racecourse Half Day
The Racecourse Rafting in New Mexico is our most popular half day trip on the Rio Grande. This trip has it all and is perfect for the whole family!
We start at our headquarters where you’ll meet your guides for the day who will outfit you with all the gear necessary for the day on the river. At the headquarters, you’ll find clean restrooms, changing rooms, and any last minute items you might have forgotten including sunscreen, water shoes, hats and much more.
The Racecourse Rafting is the perfect trip for first timers.
It is class II-III (IV at high water) and absolutely perfect for everyone.
When the water levels are especially high (usually in late May and June), we do raise the minimum age as this section grows into an extremely fun and continuous section of class III and IV whitewater. Please call if you have any questions about water levels or our minimum ages for any of our trips. We’ll tackle rapids with names like The Maze, Eye of the Needle, Big Rock and the infamous Souse Hole.
The Racecourse rafting trips are available EVERY DAY starting in March through September. When the river levels are low, the adventurous may choose to do this trip in inflatable kayaks.
