LOCATION: The Regatta starts at 8 AM where the Gila
River joins the Colorado River, the Confluence. For your ease and
safety, please use this route only: Highway 95 to Avenue 6E to the Levee
Road. Travel on the Levee Road back towards Yuma (West) about 2 miles to
the drop off point at the Confluence.
Regular passenger cars can easily make the trip but use caution and stay
on the roads. Plan to drop passengers and floats and drive on. Please
note that no formal parking is provided; drivers may need to walk some
distance to the river.
Entry rules include:
· Bring your own float tube and equipment
· Use of a Coast Guard-approved life jacket by each participant is strongly suggested
· No children under 15 can register unless accompanied by parent or guardian
· No glass is allowed in the river or at the entry and exit points
· If you bring it in, pack it out
