Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Depart from central Moab in the morning, following an orientation and safety briefing by expert river guides. A minivan takes you to the put-in point, located along the Fisher Towers section of the Colorado River. Seemingly untouched by civilization, the landscape of stunning red rock canyons and massive rock spires feels wild and remote and is abundant with wildlife.

Once you’re equipped with a life jacket and other provided gear, settle into your guide-operated oar raft and prepare for a thrilling ride. Hang on while you bounce through splashy white water, including some Class II and III rapids, then relax in calmer stretches. If you choose to ride in an inflatable kayak, your guide offers a paddle lesson and time to practice following directional commands that are needed when paddling.

Take in classic western vistas between rapids, when you can snap photos and hop in the river to swim. Drift lazily between soaring canyon walls and marvel at the landscape along the river. Listen as your naturalist guide shares informative commentary about the ecology, wildlife, and human history of the region. 

A buffet-style picnic is served during a break on a riverside beach. At the end of your full-day tour, your guide returns you to your starting point in central Moab.

Boring. No rapids. Constant inappropriate jokes, like "you know what the difference between a female raft guide and a hockey player is?" Employees gripped about the company they work for. Lunch was late and underwhelming. We actually left the trip early from the lunch break location

Our guide Keif was great very informative and down to earth. He definitely gave us an experience of a life time. Lunch was awesome. I only wish there were more white water we paid for a class 3&4 but I think 1234 is all the same But overall we had a great time

WOW!! I picked this group because their reviews were better than others and when it comes to this kind of activity I tend to trust reviews. I was not disappointed, in fact I was impressed. The guides are so wonderful and caring and truly wanting every person to have their best day. Our guide Will, was wonderful! They all work as a big team and make a great memory for your vacation.

The guides were a blast. We spent the day with Tubs, and he was great. He built rapport with the kids, but kept fun and safety on our mind. Taylor was a joy to be around, and she's very funny...except when she is purposely telling jokes :) Great day. Just note that it is mostly a calm floating day with a few light rapids. If you are thrill seeking I would suggest one of their more advanced tours. The boats were great, everything ran on time and as expected. Thanks guys!!!
