This month We team up with geologist Dr. Dave Noe of Colorado Detours for our final geology rafting tour of the summer. Local legend, Dr Noe, knows the geology of Delta County better than anyone. He himself mapped it for the United States Geological Survey during his 40-year career as a geologist. These days Dr. Noe enjoys nothing better than sharing his wealth of knowledge with attentive audiences.
This tour will follow 8 miles of the Gunnison River through the canyons of the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area. We will stop along the way to examine ancient geology and archaeology. Dr. Noe will be your guide to the oldest house in Colorado, as he interprets the 13,000 year old human inhabitation of Eagle Rock Shelter.
Your raft will be rowed by local river running pioneer and owner of Western Slope SUP, Daniel Roman. Daniel brings 10 years of experience to the table to guarantee a smooth ride down the class I/II Gunnison River.
This full day tour includes transportation, guides, lunch, BLM fees and instruction.
Want to join the trip on a SUP? For a discounted rate you can paddle board along side the trip. You will be included in all the stops, side hikes and lunch, just without a seat in the raft.
