This was a fun rafting ride for a family with 2 kids and a grandma who came too. There are a lot of calm slow areas on the river with a handful of little rapids. The Adventure Center staff were all wonderful and tried to help keep us entertained during the "slow" sections of the river. We did the "Full... More

We decided to take the evening tour down the Colorado River in Moab and it was one of my favorite tours I have ever taken.

Having rafted in Alaska, Borneo, Vietnam and New Zealand, I was expecting great things of the Colorado river. I was not disappointed. The rapids were extremely tame with only a brief class III section. However, that didn't matter as the views of the canyon walls in the Fisher Towers section of the river will remain with me forever. I shall... More

It was very hot when we visited. We had not planned to raft, but we came in the scenic highway along the Colorado River and having met river rafting decided to spend a half day on the river. WELL WORTH IT!!

Pretty mellow ride as whitewater rafting goes. Class 1, 2, & 3 rapids with slow and mellow lazy river in between. But if you have kids or simply want to soak in the scenery, nice trip. We did the whole day trip and stopped for a BBQ lunch. Food was fine. Our guide McKay told good stories and accommodated the... More

We went on the Dinner and scenic River Ride. The 'Dinner ' was in a large building , not on a boat. There was about 140 people in one room. The food was very good, but the boat ride was crowded and the light show we were promised was a truck, following the boat down a road, shining a hugh... More

We took the all day ride which I recommend , if not half day morning. Better rapids on the first part of the trip. The whole day includes lunch. Our guide Lars was very informative, he loves the water & the rocks. You do get wet, so where clothes you can get wet in. There are spots they let you... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Lots of history, great commentary and we had the beauty of a full moon to accompany us. We had taken this trip about 20 years ago and we were as delighted with the trip then as now.
