Whitewater Classes

Located in the heart of the Rio Grande Gorge, we have a variety of perfect rivers on which to teach within a short drive of our headquarters. We also offer courses that travel to the Wild and Scenic Rio Chama for an unsurpassed multiple day instructional clinic in a remote canyon of exceptional beauty. At New Mexico River Adventures, we recognize that not all of our students learn the same way and at the same pace. For that reason, our world-class instructors utilize a variety of different techniques to insure the greatest opportunity for success. Just because you’re in a group, doesn’t necessarily mean that it is a group teaching. Our instructors will make you feel like you’re an individual and address each individual’s skill progression whether you’re in a group or private lesson.
