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.

This was a great way to see the rocks at river level. Captain Andrew had many stories about all the movies made in the area. Showed us where Thelma &Louise went off the cliff. Also pointed out the trails the jeeps would take high up on the rocks. The cookies he made were great! Highly recommend this ride.

A jet boat ride, which includes dinner, Fantastic views as you travel about 18 miles down the river and back. Our guide was a local who has lived in Moab all his life and was very knowledgeable, knew the history of the river, showed us the Petroglyphs and gave some background on Moab. Dinner was all you can eat buffet... More
