Relaxing float
, May 2021
Fun relaxing float. Family enjoyed it! Wish we would have stopped at a beach to swim. The rock we swam at was hard to get in and out of the water.
Nice day a bit pricey

Guide was good and weather beautiful. I had hoped to see wild horses but wasn’t in the cards for us and my teens a bit bored but I enjoyed the serenity of it all.
Very Enjoyable

Seeing the wild horses and the peace and beauty of the Salt River float. Our guide, Ben, was excellent!

Floating Along

During the season when the Salt River flows slowly, it was a pleasure to be with Eric and Matt for a leisurely morning on this picturesque river!
Very good

The guides were excellent, knowledgeable and very personable. The ride itself was peaceful and a lot of fun. The only problem was getting in and out of the boat. The sides of the river were extremely muddy, especially at the spot we got out. Lots of slipping and sliding trying to get on shore. I do however do understand there had been rain and a water release though.
