About Us
Welcome To Tsé Kooh Outfitters!

Stewardship And Education Of The San Juan River Through Cross-Cultural Adventure And Discovery.

Tsé Kooh, pronounced “Say Koh,” meaning Rock Canyon in Diné, has a crew with more than 40 years of San Juan boating expertise and knowledge. We’re excited to introduce you to its clear pools, fern glens, ancient ruins, fossils, and petroglyphs. You choose your level of involvement. Oar-powered rafts are available if you want our seasoned river runners to handle the rowing. Prefer a more active experience? You can be part of the crew on our paddle rafts or negotiate the river currents in an inflatable kayak.


Hit the trails or watch the sun come up over last night’s beach camp. Your unforgettable outdoor adventure is tailored to your needs.

Took a 3 day trip and was the best time ever. Cody, Marcus and Jeff were great and took care of everything from meals that were amazing to showing us amazing ruins that nobody else has access too. I highly recommend booking thru them if you want to have the best experience possible

A lifetime memory of an amazing river trip with family and friends. Cody, Marcus and Jef are the bomb! What a experience on the San Juan River. The history, hikes, float, food, and outdoor magic of this river and canyon will be forever in my heart. I can not say enough about Tse’ Kooh Outfitters. One of the best times of my life.

July 16,17,18. David and I took a float trip with Cody, Marquis, and Jeff. It’s a amazing, the canyon landscape it’s so beautiful, the guides are knowledgeable and of the rich and ancient history of this area. Not just a floating a river its hiking to hidden rock carvings and pueblos high on rock cliffs.

We take our 8th grade students on the San Juan River each May. Cody, Kim and Marcus are amazing with the kids. They make the trip memorable and safe, always. I highly recommend this outfitter!

How many times do you come back from a trip like this and think, I need to step up my kitchen game? How many times do you think after a trip like this I just made 14 new friends? How ’bout if that dude ever needs anything, he can call me and I will drop whatever I am doing to go give him a hand, or even, I could call him if I ever was in a jam? We didn’t just have a weekend of seeing the sights; we experienced the sites, with the deserved respect and reverence, and we were educated. If life is a collection of experiences, we just filled a whole chapter of the book this weekend. Thanks Cody! This isn’t a cookie cutter operation with hired hands for the summer. This is the real deal from a spectular dude who lives it and cares.
