I’ll never forget my first San Juan River Trip with Adventure Discovery Tours. I was 8, soloed an inflatable canoe called a Duckie for approximately four miles before wrapping it around a strainer at the point of an island! We still have the Duckie, the island is still there and I’m not going anywhere!
Twenty eight years later and the silty water of the San Juan River flows through my veins just like it does down its meandering path to Lake Powell. The legacy of Adventure Discovery Tours continues with its own homegrown “boy”. Tsé Kooh Outfitters is honored to take the torch from Mr. Jene Vredevoogd and continue the stewardship and education of the San Juan River.
Tsé Kooh Outfitter is my dream come true. I’ve worked hard to be able to provide visitors a unique guided experience down the San Juan River. My experiences on the San Juan River have been unique, humbling and rewarding. In the past, Adventure Discovery provided opportunities for folks whose health issues might prevent them from experiencing a river trip. Those years proved to be humbling and character building. They allowed me to connect with and learn from the people who know this land the best–the Native Americans.
After 28 years, I’m even more dedicated to the stewardship of a rare American southwest river, the noteworthy cultures that call this area home, and a company that helped shape me into the person I am today.
A river trip with Tsé Kooh Outfitters offers a one-off San Juan River experience, a chance to unplug, stick your feet in the sand and enjoy life on San Juan River time!
