Morrow Point Boat Tour is only 1.5 hours from Ouray, Colorado in Curecanti National Recreation Area

The Morrow Point Boat Tour is an easy day trip from Ouray and a great way to spend a day on your Southwest Colorado vacation.  The tour typically runs from Memorial Day until Labor Day and departs from the Pine Creek Access Point at Curecanti National Recreation Area (mile marker 130 on US50, one mile or so east of Sapinaro).  The ranger guided tour lasts for 90 minutes and floats along the ultra smooth waters of the Gunnison River between Blue Mesa Dam and the Morrow Point Dam.  Access to this body of water is very limited so there is very little boat traffic (we only saw one person in a kayak who was fishing).
