Took the half day Split Mountain rafting and had a thoroughly good time. Guides Matt and Josh really knew their stuff and made the day fly by, being friendly, fun, and professional. This was my first day rafting and I'd certainly go again. After watching the video I was feeling a bit apprehensive, but there's no skimping on health and... More

We sail and flat water kayak, but had never been white water rafting. The Don Hatch Green River - Split Mountain Canyon raft trip is a great first trip. The scenery is beautiful and the river run was fun. You can believe all the reviews stating how good the lunch was and how well guests were taken care of. The... More

We went on the day trip on the Green River into Dinosaur National Monument. There is lots of white water to enjoy! The first rapid was called entrance examine because if you can't make it pass that there is no need to go any further. It was very mild. The next rapids was named Moonshine and was the highest level... More

Don Hatch River expeditions is a top level experience. I am not a regular on the river, but they really make an individual comfortable with what is going on. They are very friendly, efficient, professional, and knowledgeable. This is a company that recognizes that these trips are a very special, and rather rare adventure for many of their riders. They...

All the reviews about the food and the scenery were spot on. Just an amazing trip. I went with my dad (age 67) and two brothers. The trip was as active as you made it. You could cruise along all day or stay active by paddling in the kayaks or paddle boat. For first time rafters, we were worried about... More

I took the 3 day Gates Of Lodore trip. I loved the trip. The area is stunningly beautiful. The beautiful canyon will take your breath away. I love the staff, they are full of stories, they know their geology. They can cook, from the first supper, chicken fajitas with everything. Everything they prepare for you is totally yummy. Russell and... More

Scenery was fantastic and guides were awesome. Sent on a trip with two twelve year old children. They loved it. Just the perfect amount of rapids. I would do this trip again.

This company did a wonderful job and our guide Josh was great! Of course, Dakota packed a pretty awesome lunch, and I'm sure they couldn't have done it without Bruce's supervision. Seriously worth the time and the money. They are professional, polite, and proficient!
