San Juan River Shuttle??

Anyone found a place that is still offering a shuttle service?

All of the places I have called are no longer offering the service.

Recapture is not shuttling this year. Valle's is only shuttling from Sand Island to Mexican Hat.

Mexican Hat Lodge also might not offer the service.

I'm not sure if she is doing it anymore, but we would sometimes hire this lady Kathy to run our shuttles. I think her business was called KD shuttles.

I wonder why all these people stopped shuttling. I would think it's a pretty easy way to make some extra cash around there.

Black Hawk Transportation in Blanding is still offering shuttle service but it is $210 for 2 people and they will not shuttle your vehicle.

I've never done the SJ.... Are the put-in's on BLM, private or Navajo land? The BLM outfitter permitting system is sometimes enough to dissuade shuttle services (I'm a Park Ranger and know BLM bureaucracy all too well) and I can't even imaging what the Res. permitting system would be like.

Valle's in Mexican Hat is my suggestion, I'd also recommend paying them the $5/day to park your car as there seems to always be miscreants around the MH takeout.

Valle's will do shuttle's do Clay Hills as of last Dec, but they will only pick up drivers? This may have changed as the owner said they had been burned repeatedly last year by no shows, people extremely late, etc......
