THREE DAYS on the river with SAM BAKER


On October 8-10, 2021 , Sam Baker and his old river buddies will launch on an unforgettable excursion down the Rio Grande., culminating in the amazing Santa Elena Canyon.  1500 feet in depth at the mouth of the canyon, with vertical cliffs rising straight from water’s edge, we are eager to show you our “beautiful border wall”. Like many visitors to Big Bend, Sam was drawn to the unparalleled beauty and mystery of the legendary Rio Grande. Sam had a real job back then,  but threw it all away to become certified as a river guide with Far Flung Adventures.  Sam went on to pursue a life of adventure and exotic travel. His journey in life is nothing short of miraculous, as is his original music. Check his website to learn more.

Cost for this trip is $800 per person.  Meals are fresh and delicious, accommodation can be made for any food preference or restriction. We will meet at the office of our collaborators Big Bend Boating and Hiking  at 8:30 am on Friday, October 8, 2021, then load into our vehicle to transport guests to the river’s edge. We encourage guests to meet us the afternoon/evening before for orientation and to pick up a waterproof duffel. Camping is available on site at no additional charge; we are happy to help arrange overnight accommodations nearby before and after the river trip.

We do not take on-line reservations for this special and personal trip; we want to make sure that everyone is fully informed about what it is all about. We like speaking in person with our guests from the very first contact. For further information and to book, call Mike Davidson/Go Big Bend at 432-386-5635, mike@gobigbend.com
