The Denali Llama is our largest all-purpose / whitewater-style raft, great for taller paddlers, large cargo, or two people in the right situations.
The Denali Llama is our largest all-purpose / whitewater-style raft. It is 4.5 inches (0.11 meters) longer than the Yak, allowing for larger packs and longer legs. People taller than 6 feet (1.88 meters) generally find it the best size for whitewater and general-purpose boating.
Two-Person Fords, & Ferries: The Llama has plenty of flotation for two people on a short crossing, as long as you don't mind getting cozy. For this reason, we recommend the Llama as an option for couples or small groups who want to do calm river fording or limited flatwater crossings. A single paddler can ferry all the packs and travelers, one passenger at a time. This technique allows groups to safely cross water obstacles with minimal equipment.
Cargo & Hunting: The Llama is often suitable for hunters,since its large size lets it accommodate larger backpacks and gamebags, especially hunters for whom the Llama would otherwise be a littlebig. For those hunters who would find the Llama a normally well-fittedboat, you may wish to "shift up" and look at the Unrigged Explorer.
Note about extended models: The stern of the extended model will extend another 3". This upgrade is very small and really only noticeable for people running lots of Class 3-4 whitewater.
