When summer days warm and the San Juan River slows, it's time to relax and float the day away through the heart of downtown Pagosa Springs!
 
The San Juan River water flow is measured in cubic feet per second. Whitewater rafting and kayaking conditions are prime when snow in the high country begins to melt each spring and flows exceed 600 cubic feet per second.
 
Tubing and floating the San Juan River becomes safe for the adventurous when river flows drop below 400 cubic feet per second. If you are looking for family-friendly floating, wait until the river flows are anywhere from 90 to 150 cubic feet per second. Anything lower and it becomes a rocky ordeal! 
 
To make the most of your visit, several shops in downtown Pagosa Springs rent tubes, life jackets, and helmets - all the things you need to enjoy a day on the river.
 
As always, be sure to follow state and local regulations for being safe on the water and keep in mind, swimming in the river is at your own risk. Be safe and #justbehere
