Stand Up Paddle Colorado is one of the first licensed river outfitters to offer SUP Trips commercially in the state of Colorado. The Upper Colorado has the ideal river sections that may be split according to levels of comfort, safety and athleticism.

SUP is taking the world surfing community by storm and has now entered into the realm of the river as well. For this activity you should be in adequate physical condition and be a comfortable swimmer. Class 2 rapids that may seem easy in a raft or kayak are a whole more challenging when you are standing on a board navigating through them. It is common to spend time in the water.

For the SUP Advanced Full Day Tour we run the same sections we typically run on our full day rafting trips. We drive from our HQ upstream to the Pumphouse, put in and run 10 miles of river and rapids finishing at our Dome HQ. The length of the trip, the nature of the rapids and its remote setting requires a safety raft to paddle along for support. If at any point a patron wants to take a break from paddling, they are encouraged to sit in the raft for however long they wish and just enjoy the scenery. All rapids are scouted and explained beforehand. If at any point a patron decides he or she does not want to run a rapid on the board, they can sit in the raft and continue on the board after the rapid. Lunch is included in this tour as well.
