Phoenix Kayaking Day Tours

Jonesin' for a lake adventure?  Phoenix kayaking trips are a fun, leisurely way to pass the time.  Did you know that this area of Arizona encompasses 30,000 acres of lakes just waiting for you to grab a paddle and go?  Kayaking on the lakes in the Phoenix area of Arizona is a perfect year round activity.  Join us for a half or full day of kayaking at Canyon, Saguaro or Bartlett Lake.  

Canyon Lake is just over an hour's drive from the Just Roughin' It headquarters and features 28 miles of shoreline, dotted with red rock, cacti and serene coves where you might spot a deer, sheep or turtles.  Your kayak gives you a front row view of the spectacular wildlife found here! 

Just under 1 hour North of JRI, Bartlett Lake is found in the heart of the Tonto National Forest. Its mesmerizing surroundings create a memorable location for your kayaking adventure, providing over 2,800 acres of paddling, making it the second largest lake in the Phoenix Metro area. Fewer visitors to this lake makes for solitude and more opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the desert.

Saguaro Lake is 45 minutes Northeast of JRI and provides 22 miles of shoreline, dotted with thousands of Saguaro Cacti - giving Saguaro Lake its name. Secluded and scenic coves await for any paddler looking to see what an Arizona lake lake is like - surrounded by canyon walls, vegetation and desert wildlife.

Half day kayaking trips depart at 8am and 1pm from the Just Roughin' It Pro Shop.  Spend 3 to 3.5 fun hours on the lake!  
*The lake we paddle on is dependent upon availability.

My colleague and I had a GREAT time with Ken! We checked out Canyon Lake and the local terrain before a business trip. It was really nice to have a personalized tour with just our folks and choose which areas we wanted to go to, how fast we wanted to go, and really enjoy the native area. There are some great peaceful coves and lovely hiking areas. We went on a Sunday, and there were lots of power boats and personal water crafts around which was unnerving at first, but we got used to "staying loose" and riding the wake. Ken helped us learn about local vegetation, birds and geology. He was also very patient and understanding when we were a little awkward with our equipment :-)

We'd go again in a heartbeat! Great lunch and snacks, too!

"My favorite backpacking trip is the Cremation Canyon trip. You get to hike the popular main trails of the canyon, but get a chance to get away from the crowds and camp virtually alone under the sky, unostructed by trees or the canyon walls. "
