Due to Gunnison County Public Health Orders regarding social distancing and group numbers, the boat tour has been cancelled for 2020.
Take a boat ride into the Black Canyon of the Gunnison
Join a park ranger for a leisurely 1½ hour boat tour on the Morrow Point Reservoir. You will travel into the famous Black Canyon of the Gunnison and learn about local geology, wildlife, early inhabitants, railroads, water control efforts and more. Be sure to bring your camera!
From the Pine Creek trail parking area, walk down 232 stairs and enjoy an easy one mile scenic walk along the old rail bed to reach the boat dock. Leave the trailhead no later than 45 minutes prior to the tour and allow more time for a slower pace. Meet the ranger at the boat dock. Pre-boarding begins 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time; tours begin promptly.
Note: A short, steep, gravel-surfaced road leads to the trailhead. Parking space is limited. Drop-off parking for trailers is available at the top of the access road.
For security reasons, carry-on bags and packs are subject to search. All passengers under 13 years of age must wear a Personal Flotation Device (provided). Pets, smoking, firearms, and alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the boat.
