Overview

Moab is blessed with the Colorado River running right through the middle of the desert, and on this Moab whitewater rafting tour, experience a scenic float down the river that also has Class III rapids. This tour takes place near Fishers Tower, which is just on the outskirts of Moab, where you can swim in the river, photograph wildlife, and listen as your guide explains the geology and history behind the canyons.  With various departures during the day at 9:00 am, 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm, the half-day trip can fit into most schedules. Bring the whole family on a fun-filled half-day Colorado River trip that runs about 7 river miles (11 km) with fantastic scenery and moderate rapids. Noon departures include a lunch by the riverside.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
This Moab whitewater rafting tour begins in the middle of town, when you meet your professional whitewater guides at the central Moab office. From here, you’ll receive an intro and safety briefing and get loaded up in the van, which will shuttle you out to the Fishers Tower section of the Colorado River. With its soaring spires, vertical canyons and deeply red-hued rocks, this section of river feels like blissfully remote, despite being so close to town.

Before boarding the raft for the splash-filled journey, get fitted with a lifejacket and listen as your guide explains the course of the river. Your guide will propel the raft by oars, so you can sit back and enjoy the scenic, sometimes bumpy, cruise. The rapids on this section are Class II-III and are the largest in early summer snow melts. If you choose to paddle an inflatable kayak instead of riding in the raft, your guide will provide a paddling lesson and make sure you can follow commands. 

As you make your way down the Colorado River, keep your eyes peeled for birds and wildlife that can often be seen on the banks, and listen as your guide explains the history and geology of the rocky canyons. At the end of the journey, after splashing down the river or going for a swim, your trip ends with a short ride back to downtown Moab. 

Half-Day Rafting Trip:Since there are multiple departures during the day, it’s easy to work your schedule around the 7-mile (11-km) half-day rafting trip. Lunch along the riverside is included with noon departures.

We had the best day rafting down the Colorado river! We were lucky and got Kit as our raft guide. He made the day so enjoyable. Couldn’t have asked for a better or more knowledgeable guide during our trip. Recommend riding with him to anybody!

A bit on the boring side for the kids wanting more action. Also a long wait (about an hour) for the pickup after the rafting trip. Scenery was great though.

An Enjoyable Rafting Experience

My wife and I had a great time rafting despite the water flow being flow due to low water. However, our raft guide was so very well trained in his skills, informative, and unbelievably funny that we had a blast with other couples that we met from around the US. Lunch was very enjoy before taking to the water (extremely cold H20 by the way). All safety and protocol measures were taken to be sure everyone would have a great and safe time. We would go again but with higher water levels for a more extreme rafting experience.

Our guides were awesome, very informative when it came to the history of the city. Guides showed alot of patience when pulling us in after swimming. Our driver who returned us was such a big help in suggesting activities to do later that evening, which we did and agreed it was an amazing experience. Thank u!

Laid back rafting tour with room for improvement.!

Cooper the guide was great! A little slower paced than I prefer but overall a nice laid back excursion. The only issue was that our driver was over 30min late picking us up and The guide had no way of contacting the office so we were left stranded for quite a while an easy solution to this would be to give walkie-talkies to your employees.
