Full description

Escape the summer heat with a paddleboarding experience on the Lower Salt River. Cruise below cliffs and past beautiful desert scenery while keeping an eye out for wildlife local to the Tonto National Forest.

Begin your outdoor adventure at Saguaro Lake Ranch, no Tonto Pass required. Begin with a short orientation session and safety briefing where you'll learn the ins and outs of paddleboarding. Then, ready to hit the water, you'll launch from a private beach.

Sit, kneel, or stand on your board as you float down the river. Marvel at the unique ecosystem, home to otters, wild horses, javelina, roadrunners, and more. At the end of your river tour, you'll be greeted by staff waiting to transfer you back to the ranch in an air-conditioned vehicle.
