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.

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!

My family went rafting down the split river. My daughter is 8, and the rapids were just right for her. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area, and made the trip very memorable for us.

We four adults were visiting Flaming Gorge for the first time and knew nothing about the area. I booked a half-day rafting trip with Don Hatch based upon date, time, and online reviews. We could not have been happier with the choice. The outfit was extremely professional and really fun. We enjoyed every aspect of the trip, from the Dinosaur... More

We have been rafting with Hatch for over 30 years. They are always professional, friendly, and the price of the float is very reasonable. Lee was a great guide. The water was clear and clean, the scenery was beautiful, and the wildlife was amazing. Great horned sheep, eagles, and even rabbits. The crew was very conscientious about keeping the area... More
