Owner description: No longer simply a rafting company, Red River Adventures is a leader in Moab multi-sport vacations! Don't be fooled by others offering “one stop” shopping only to be shuffled among the true providers once you arrive. We are the only guide service in town that holds permits to guide river, canyoneering and rock climbing trips in house. On land or water our guides can do almost everything. For those trips we can’t run ourselves, we've teamed up with some of Moab's best and will let you know, in advance, who will be guiding you. For 1 day or more we've got something for everyone!

“Great Family Fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

First time whitewater rafting for this family! It was the time of our lives! Katie was our guide and she was fantastic! Never would have guessed it was her first year! Very knowledgeable and fun! All the guides were fun! The food at the beach lunch was great and perfect for the day!
We would so do this again!

“Best river guides in Moab!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We just completed an amazing overnight rafting trip between July 5th and 6th with 4 kids. We happened to get paired up with a fantastic family with kids the same age as ours for the voyage down the river. Our guides (Mike, Owen, and Sam) made the trip highly enjoyable from start to finish with endless kid friendly jokes, in-depth knowledge of the area, and meals so good that I could hardly believe they could be prepared on a river bank. Mike lead us on a sunset hike after dinner to enjoy breathtaking scenery and he kept us entertained with games on the river bank. He was also our river guide both days and carried on interesting conversation during the lulls between rapids, which is the majority of the trip. The guides seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs and their positive attitudes are contagious! This trip is great for families and we highly recommend Red River Adventures. Just be sure to request Mike, Owen, or Sam as your guide!

“Great way to cool off on a hot day in Moab”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

My girlfriend and I rafted the full day Fisher Towers section of the Colorado River with RRA on June 25 which fed our adventurous appetites. It was a blast! It was my girlfriend’s first time white water rafting so it was perfect for first timers. There was plenty of splashy and smooth water to take in the sights of the canyon and jump off the boat to swim alongside it. We were very impressed with the knowledge and experience of our guide Owen. He pointed out many of the sights and always had control of the boat. Lunch consisted of sandwiches made by our guides and was very delicious. We had an amazing time and would recommend it to anyone of all skill levels. Hopefully we can get back to Moab to do more trips with them.

“An Excellent Time with Red River Adventures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We took our first trip to Moab the last week of May. Our family (kids 13 & 16) had a great time on the two adventures we booked with Red River Adventures. Our full-day white water rafting trip at Fisher Towers was fun. It wasn't white knuckle, adrenaline pumping fun, but it was a great day on the river. They have another trip you can book for the class IV-V rapids. The scenery was beautiful. Our guide was easy to talk to, knowledgable about the area, funny and made the trip very enjoyable. Our lunch was tasty. It consisted of build-your-own wrap sandwiches (meat or veggie), chips, fruit and cookies for dessert. I would definitely recommend this trip. It's great for families since it's not too difficult. The guides are great and very entertaining.

We also booked a canyoneering adventure with Adam. This was the highlight of our trip. The hike out and back isn't bad at all. The rappelling was incredible. I loved it! I can't believe our kids did it, as they both have a fear of heights. It was our first time rappelling. Adam was great at talking all of us through the steps and precautions, especially our kids. We felt safe every step of the way. Everyone has said they would love to go rappelling again. Thanks Adam!!

When we go back to Moab we will definitely book any adventure trips through Red River Adventures. They are top-notch on fun, safety and adventure.

“Red River Adventures is the Way To Go !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We went on the "Rim to River" canyoneering and rafting trip and loved it! Our two kids (son - 11, daughter -14) said it was the highlight of their vacation. Ean was our guide and was fantastic. He was very knowledgable of the area, local history, and the various aspects of both rappelling and rafting. He was very safety-concious and ensured all four of us were comfortable with our adventure. Ean also related very well with both of our kids, which helped make it an exciting day for them. Another key point for this company is the small size of the groups. Our family of 4 were the only people on the tour, which made it a very personable and enjoyable experience for all of us. We highly recommend the Red River adventures. If we go back to the area, we'll be contacting Red River for sure!
