All of our guided SUP tours take place near Phoenix on Saguaro Lake or the Lower Salt River in the Tonto National Forest.
The Salt River is a Class I river (the easiest rating on the international scale of river difficulty) and provides some of the best wildlife and bird watching opportunities in the Southwest. Water temperatures are in the 60s in the winter and rise to low 80s in the summer months. Swimming is possible year‐round, but the water may be chilly in January!
Tours typically last about 4 hours and are available on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday mornings and commence at AOA’s office in North Scottsdale. AOA transports all equipment to and from the river and provides water and snacks for the duration of the tour.
