Read about us here: 

Our rental area covers a scenic 6.1 mile section of the Colorado River that begins and ends in historic Columbus.  You will begin at Howell Canoe Livery and end at Beason's Park.  This is a great day trip that includes two islands, two sets of light rapids, and a creek that flows into the river halfway through the trip.  Extended trips from 10 to 100 miles are available with advance notice.  Contact us for more information regarding these trips.

All participants are required to listen to a pre-launch briefing.  Afterwards, any participation in the water sports activity will be contingent upon completion of a Participant Agreement (link below).

Since we promote family fun, we have adopted a "NO ALCOHOL" policy on the river.  If we determine that you are under the influence and/or are taking alcohol on the trip, we will not rent equipment to you.
