Each trip has a meeting spot where rafting participants assemble to start the day’s adventure. Found below are maps to those meeting spots (except Quartzite River Access, which is in preparation). Please print the maps appropriate to your meeting place.

New Wave Rafting Co. headquarters is located at 2110 State Rd (Hwy.) 68. Those coming from the south (Santa Fe and Albuquerque) will pass our headquarters on the way to their meeting spots. We have, therefore, provided maps from both Santa Fe and Albuquerque TO our headquarters. We have also provided maps FROM our headquarters to the Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center and County Line River Access meeting spots. We have also provided maps to the same two meeting spots for those coming from Taos. The driving time from Albuquerque to the river is no less than 2 hours and fifteen minutes, and 1 hour and fifteen minutes from Santa Fe. The driving time from Taos to the river is 30 minutes. All of our Rio Grande trips BUT the Taos Box and New Wave No Wave Float meet at the County Line River Access, at 2410 State Rd (Hwy) 68. The Taos Box meets at the Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center, in Pilar, at 2873 State Rd (Hwy) 68, Pilar, NM, 87553, which is impossible to miss. The New Wave No Wave Float meets at Quartzite River Access, 2826 State Rd 68, 1/4 mile south of the Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center. Please arrive ten minutes before the designated departure time, to allow you time to get on your river garb, apply sunscreen, use the toilet and sign our release. Finally, there’s no need for those coming from the south to stop at our headquarters. Just wave as you go by, and you’ll be at the County Line River Access in 3 minutes or the Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center in 10 minutes.
