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.

This activity will end right where it started.
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.

Everyone we interacted with were great. Our guide on the river was Tiana. She was adorable and so professional. She gave us lots of river facts. She was very special with the young men in our group who’s 11, 14 and 16 year old antics kept us all laughing. Great experience and it was all our first time. We will definitely do this again.

How to waste 4 hours
Nikita_D

It's such a pointless experience, I call it, the moment you fall into the 2.5-hour trap. That is boring! I do not recommend it to anyone. What I see in the photo before buying and what I get when I am already sailing in a boat is entirely different. It looks more like a fraud.

Ethan was a good guide. He told us about what the rocks were called. When we asked questions he always seemed to have an answer. Took us over some rapids. We enjoyed our trip with him.

Our river guide and driver were very pleasant. The river float was enjoyable, unfortunately the river was down and it was more of a float then rafting. Would recommend.

Leisure float

If you want a nice leisurely float down a river with about 5 or 6 small rapids this is the trip for you. I don’t recommend for true whitewater rafting. They were only class 2 and not enough of them. The swimming and floating down thru the small rapids with the life jacket on was fun.

Luke is a great guide!

Awesome trip. Waters weren’t running too fast so mostly floating but was very enjoyable. Luke was an awesome guide and made the trip fun. We had 3 duckies (inflatable kayaks) that were a ton of fun.

A fun time if you are looking for a more calmer white water rafting. Amazing guides, I felt very safe. Great if you are more on the timid side or have younger children.

Beautiful views! Our guide Katie was fantastic. We went in July so water was low and rapids were tame. Saw a bald eagle. If I did it again, I would book a tour with bigger rapids through the same Tour company (Navtec). We also did the Navtec 4x4 tour (awesome!) and are going canyoneering with the company in the morning!

Great Adventure!

We had an incredible tour down the river, and it was very cool to see the canyon from this perspective. My only note is that the tour says they provide water and lemonade, but they didn't so that was the only difficult part of a 3 hour tour in a very hot climate. Bring a bottle of water and you'll have an amazing time!

Depends on what you are looking for

This float would be great for a family with kiddos or older people who want to be on the water but not have to be physical. My husband and I were hoping for more activity instead of just sitting in the boat. There’s only 4 areas of class 1/2 rapids (but we did go in July) so most of the 7ish miles are spent at a leisure pace while your guide does all of the paddling. Our guide, Spencer, made the trip. He was super professional and had a ton of history and information to share, which really made the trip for us. Beautiful views and fun to see Moab from the Colorado!

Scenery was beautiful and it was a relaxing trip. Even with a short rain storm. Actually thought there would be more class 3 rapids instead if 1 & 2. Guide Carter was very knowledgeable and strong.
