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

The lady at Highpoint was extremely helpful in explaining the best package and how to organise our day, including helping us to fit in an early morning flight with Redtail Aviation On a hot day, this was actually a...

We took the nighttime trip with the light show. My husband really enjoyed it but I think a daytime trip would have been better for me. It was of course cooler at night and we were there in August. The food was very good. It was BBQ and all you can eat!! They had a cash bar and the service... More
