San Juan River Adventures
Faqs, Policies, How It Works
Getting There

Your San Juan River trip begins at the Sand Island Boat Ramp, located 2.4 miles Southwest of Bluff Utah. Bluff is located along HW 191, in San Juan County Utah. San Juan County is located in the southeastern portion of Utah, in a geological region known as the Colorado Plateau. If you choose to fly into the area, Cortez, Colorado and Farmington, New Mexico; both have airports with rental cars available. Let us know if you need any assistance. We’ll help you make all the necessary travel arrangements.

The boat ramp and campgrounds are located south of HW 191, provide short and long term parking, bathrooms and views. Here is where you will meet your crew of river guides, unless prior arrangements have been made. While the guides give their safety talks and the trip orientation, another member of our crew will shuttle your vehicle to our warehouse located in Bluff. Your vehicle will be safely stored until transported to your desired take out.

How It Works

From that point on, relax, we’ll take it from here. Together, we will create your trip menu, don’t be shy, we have a full river kitchen set-up that’s sure to please any foodie. From smoothies to Thai food, we’ve got it covered. A gear check list will be provided in your conformation email, please contact us with any questions. Around 15 days before your trip, we will be checking in, making sure trip specifics remain the same and make sure everyone is on the same page.

The night before your trip, we will have a guide “Meet and Greet” at the Recapture Lodge in Bluff Utah, we will show you how to use your dry bags, address any concerns and provide a basic run down of how your trip will proceed.

Unfortunately, Tsé Kooh Outfitters does not provide transportation of guests. We work with a local shuttle service from Bluff to handle all car transportation needs. Give us a call, we can answer transportation questions. Transportation to the river is included in the price of your trip. Most groups ask that their vehicles be waiting for them at the take out in either Mexican Hat or Clay Hills. This is easily arranged at an additional charge per vehicle.
