“Take the Kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We visited Moab in late May. Given the low snow pack this year, the Colorado was running at low levels but it was perfect for our boys first experience "white water (barely)" rafting. Canyon Voyages is great for families, lots of information about the local scenery and guides that put you at ease. Since river levels were very manageable, our boys were even able to jump out of the raft and hang on to the sides as we floated downstream. Couldn't do that in a normal year and thrilling for them. Guides bring inflatable kayaks along too that everyone shared so that was a bonus experience. Know that there is a 40 minute or so (school) bus ride to the put-in site along a kind of windy road but enjoy the views. Good to bring a water bottle and snacks. We did the Fishers Tower trip. Go to the bathroom before you leave the store - the bathrooms are NOT pleasant.

“Fun, friendly people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We enjoyed our 1/2 day kayak trip down the Colorado with Canyon Voyages. Our guide, John, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, giving us all kinds of helpful information. It was nice to have the transportation and kayaks taken care of for us with such enthusiasm! They do a great job!

“Such a fun day with kids on the river!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We were just there last weekend and my friend and I took our 3 kids that were ages 6-8. They had a total blast! Our guide was Mark, and he was so mellow and sweet with the kids...he entertained them with local history and even some pirate jokes! He made sure to teach us cool stuff about the river and how to be safe on the boat. We had plenty of time to enjoy the scenery, eat lunch, swim, and enough short rapids to make the kids very happy...but not scared. Lunch was picnic style and was yummy with lots to eat. There was even a professional photographer that took pics near some rapids that we could purchase after. I have been to Moab many times, but never on a rafting trip. Now, I think that every time we go Canyon Voyages Adventure Co is going to be seeing us! Tips; get a waterproof camera before you go (they have them there at the shop) and get some water shoes or sandals that will stay on to protect your feet. Otherwise, leave everything else behind and have an amazing day! Thanks again for the wonderful time and amazing adventure!!!

“Great family trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We had 15 people ranging in age 4-60+. We had our own raft and two duckies assigned to our large group, which made the half day trip so much fun. Everyone that wanted to had a chance to spend time in the kayaks, and we all had lots of time to float along behind the raft. Arne was very patient with us, even when we had to go back and "rescue" one of the kayakers who had trouble keeping up because of the wind blowing them upriver. Lunch was great too, freshly made salads to go with the variety of sandwiches.

“A good time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

There are lots of choices for rafting in Moab. We randomly picked this one. They have a great store for supplies. Transportation is good, their staff were perfect, they were flexible with their rafts and kayaks. We switched over to a kayak half way through the 1/2 day trip. It was not their fault that the Colorado was low this year due to the drought, so the ride was less exciting than our previous year in West Glazier when the river was very high and fast. Very family friendly and safe. We were pleased with the unexpected picture that was taken of us.
