Fisher Towers

Moab, Utah

The basics

For hikers, the main access point to Fisher Towers is the Fishers Tower Trail, a rugged, 2.6-mile (4.2-kilometer) one-way trek that passes a series of dramatic rock formations. Many visitors, however, will see Fisher Towers from the water, on guided white-water rafting trips that range from half- to full-day outings. This portion of the river combines flat water with relatively small rapids, so it’s popular with families and novice rafters. It’s also possible to combine a Fisher Towers rafting trip with other desert experiences, such as 4WD tours.

Fisher Towers Rafting Full-Day Trip from Moab
The staff was top notch. We started with Halie aka River Barbie and ended with Cole for the afternoon. Both did excellent job. Both very knowledgeable about the river and kept us entertained. Lunch was beyond my expectations, a chicken wrap that you would get in a restaurant. Great flavor. We would recommend this trip as a must do while visiting Moab!!

Popular White-Water Rafting Spots in Moab

Fisher Towers is among the most sought-after rafting spots in the area, but there’s plenty more to choose from. One favorite is the Colorado River at Westwater Canyon, with Class III and Class IV rapids that are more challenging than those in the Fisher Towers area. Just south of Moab, the Green River and the Colorado River converge above Cataract Canyon. Here rafters tackle a spectacular 100-mile (161-kilometer) river section that can be rafted in a single day or over multiple days.
