Fall of 2013, we kayaked with a guided tour company, so we remembered the watch out parts of the river. Things can change, so it's good to talk or read online for new or potential... More

We had a wonderful time rafting the Colorado courtesy of Red River Rafting. Adam our guide was excellent and the small group of 6 had an amazing time. We also took the Canyoning the next day with Adam and this was also awesome. Red River Adventures is a smallish company but is very professional in everything they do, they are... More

THE COLORADO RIVER SOUTH OF MOAB, UTAH (UTAH’S HIDDEN BYWAYS XIV) When one thinks about the Colorado River, visions of mighty rapids, immense dams, and a great conduit of water for the Southwest United States dance before our eyes. The Colorado River, from its birth in the Rocky Mountains to its delta on the Pacific coast, if it gets that... More

This is probably a great ride in the spring. In September, we spent a lot of time avoiding sand bars. The guide was great. It set us up for what to look for when we drove Potash Rd. In the Spring when the river roars, this must be quite the trip

Fantastic 3 hour boat ride on the Colorado river up to Canyon Lands National Park. The tour guide was very informative and funny. The day trip is perfect for photographers, did not do any night rides.

Went with 10 and 13 year old, we had a blast!!!! I would do this again in a heartbeat with the kids. It was not really tough rapids, but enjoyable and somewhat tame. Made it fun so the kids could swim and play!

Okay, my review is a bit long but it's worth it! We are a French family of four with two teenagers of 15 and 13 (boy and girl) and we had one of the best times of our life on the river in August!

From Moab, the Colorado river is pretty tame. Expect class 2 rapids. Very scenic and relaxing. There are a couple of cliff jumping areas that picks up the excitment.
