Standard Packrafts



Denali Llama

by Alpacka Raft

Denali Llama rafting a lake

High performance, ultralight, and bombproof. Now in its 17th year of production, the Alpacka Raft Series is time tested and proven as the most trusted, most versatile, and most imitated packraft ever. The Denali Llama is a longer option, allowing for larger packs and longer legs. People taller than 6 feet (1.88 meters) generally find it the best size for whitewater and general-purpose boating.

Our Llama includes the Cruiser spray deck and spray skirt! The Cruiser deck seals along the left boat tube and up the left side of the torso with Velcro, which easily comes apart in the event of a wet-exit. An inflatable pillow sheds water and keeps water from pooling in your lap. This spray-deck fits on the outside of your PFD with an adjustable elastic, which does let some water in at times and why we consider this deck to be “semi-dry” . The deck can be mostly removed when not needed, leaving only the zippered outline and a small panel in the bow. The Cruiser is a very simple and effective design, with no extra pieces or parts to keep track of.

Rental includes: paddle, PFD, Cruiser spray deck, inflation bag, stuff sack, and basic repair kit.

Nirvana Self-Bailer

by Kokopelli Packraft

Kokopelli Nirvana Self Bailer Packraft

The Nirvana Self-Bailing packraft is new and improved for the 2018 paddling season. A redesigned seat that is integrated into the floor and a backband provides ample support for strong paddling.
The advantages of a self-bailer over a spraydeck include quick entry and exit of the craft to scout rapids, the elimination to pull over to the side of the river to empty water out of your packraft, and a higher paddling position to allow deeper more efficient paddle strokes.

Rental includes: paddle, PFD, inflation bag, stuff sack, and basic repair kit.

Nirvana with Spraydeck

by Kokopelli Packraft

Kokopelli Nirvana Packraft

The Nirvana with spraydeck has two chambers in the main hull. Each Whitewater Series packraft includes 6 d-rings strategically placed for packing your gear. The Nirvana spraydeck model includes a spray skirt which is 100% seam taped ensuring a mostly dry paddling experience, unless of course you have an ‘out of boat experience’. This is a great boat for the new packrafter as it is very stable in comparison to many other boats and offers a fair amount of forgiveness in whitewater. The Nirvana accommodates a wide range of sizes all the way up to people as tall as 6’3”.

Rental includes: paddle, PFD, skirt hoop, inflation bag, stuff sack, and basic repair kit.
