This is the most popular float. The shuttle to the Blair access is just 20 minutes away from Dawt. The float back to Dawt is 8 miles and is approx. 4-6 hours long. The time to complete this float can be from 4 to 6 hours depending on the number of fun breaks you take. This trip is great for experiencing the rapids, deep holes, and shallow sections of the river. It is a fun but safe section of the river for families with young first floaters, avid canoeing, and kayaking enthusiasts. Don’t forget your fishing pole as this section is part of the Trophy Trout area.

We put in boats every day from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. on the hour. Please be in our store at least 30-45 minutes before your reserved trip time. This will allow you enough time to fill out our waiver and for you to load your items onto our bus. If you miss your departure time, you may be put onto the next available time IF there is space available.
