My husband and I took a trip through Arizona in May and I am so thankful we found canyoneering through centerFocus experiences!! They are the BEST!! Canyoneering through Parker canyon was hands down one of the most amazing trips of our lives !! It combined beauty with challenging terrain! Our guide was knowledgeable, confident and knew every angle of the canyon. My husband and I frequently talk about when we are going to go back ! It is definitely an experience of a lifetime and I highly recommend centerFocus experiences to guide you through! Thanks again for an amazing experience !

My group of four thoroughly enjoyed the scenic kayak trip down the Verde River. Our guide Howie, described the trip as having class “fun” rapids and they were. Howie gave us clear direction and instructions throughout the entire voyage. You really could enjoy this trip even if you are a kayak novice. Howie paid close attention to our group to make sure everyone was safe and enjoying the trip. The staff at CenterFocus are friendly, helpful, and patient. They picked us up at our hotel in Sedona and transported us to and from the river. We had plenty of questions before and during and they cheerfully answered all of our questions regarding operation of the kayak, safety, water depth, temperature etc. One of our favorite adventures while visiting Sedona.

I have been at Sedona about 30 times. It never gets old. The area has a lot to offer. A few wineries have opened up and they all have great product, comfortable tasting rooms, and great scenery. Plenty of restaurants. Suggest Restaurants.com and Groupon for a few deals.

My dad and I decided we wanted to try a kayaking trip for a new adventure. I will start by saying that neither one of us had any experience prior to this outing. The booking process was very easy and straightforward. They answered all of our questions and were helpful so we were prepared for the trip. Their office/starting point was in a small town called Cottonwood, but their office wasn't too difficult to find. Everyone who works here was AMAZING. They were very friendly, and genuinely interested in who we were. They were not the type of people who do this only for the money. You can clearly tell that this is their passion and that they love sharing that passion with others. Our guide was wonderfully patient and explained everything we needed to know. We felt very much not rushed or that we were "going too slow." In fact, he reminded us to take our time and enjoy the trip. He also did a fantastic job teaching us about the river, the Sinagua people, and anything else about Arizona he could share. He was very patient and made the outing very enjoyable. In addition, he took several pictures of us kayaking down the river! All in all an absolutely fantastic and amazing adventure. I personally can't wait to go kayaking again!

Enjoy a leisure kayak trip down the Verde River. Your adventure guides will provide clear direction and instructions throughout the entire voyage. There are a few small eddies that are easy to navigate with little or no previous kayaking experience. The guide described them as class 1 rapids. This tour is manageable for first-timers and novices. It is not an extreme adventure. You will get more pleasure and exert yourself very little while rowing with the current down the Verde River. You will get wet. Ensure that you prepare yourself according to the checklist provided by CenterFocus. Getting in and out of the kayak and negotiating the rapids will expose you to enough water to dampen clothes and wreak havoc on electronic devices. Use a waterproof camera and secure mobile phones somewhere else that's safe and dry. The views, of course, are stunning. Seeing the Verde Canyon from the river will provide a unique perspective — unmatched by jeep, ATV, or hiking trips. Wildlife is less likely to be disturbed as you skim by quietly in your kayak — providing an opportunity to view Blue Heron, Eagles, Beaver, and other local inhabitants. The staff at CenterFocus are friendly, helpful, and patient. They will answer any questions regarding operation of your kayak, safety, local history, geology, and geography. You will enjoy their hospitality and yearn to come back for more of the CenterFocus adventure offerings. What are you waiting for. Book your trip today.
