It's Duckie season!

The little inflatable kayaks are starting to make their way onto the Animas town run more and more each day. Mountain Waters plans to start offering guided Duckie (inflatable kayak) trips in the coming weeks.

Casey Lynch, owner of Mountain Waters, will hold his annual "duckie guide meeting" tonight. He will go over safety issues, rescue situations, and do an on-the-water training. Obviously being in a duckie alone is a lot different than being in a boat with eight other people, therefore a different sort of mindset is needed. Although duckie guides are usually staying busy while on the water, it's a favorite among the crew here at Mountain Waters. Guides get excited to be in a different boat, in different situations, and, all of a sudden, bigger water. The smaller the boat, the bigger the wave.

We offer single duckies as well as double duckies. If you book a duckie trip, we'll get you lined out with a helmet and a paddle, a quick little safety speech, and then you'll be off on your own whitewater adventure.

The boats are fun, the water is good. Come and find out if you have what it takes to guide yourself down a class II-III river. We'd love to have you.

You gotta love the duckies. I think it is a great way to do the in town trip. My wife and I went down in the double and had a blast.
