I can not say enough AMAZING things about Red River. I planned a family vacation with my 5 year old son and was very hesitant at first (being from new york city to boot!). But what a great surprise. . .Red River uses smaller boats that holds 6 people including the guide which was perfect for us. My son was scared at first but the guide picked up on it immediately and moved the raft through the first rapids effortlessly so that he could get used to being on the river and it worked! by the end of the trip by son didn't want to leave and was even swimming in the river with me!! It is HOT in Moab in the summer but we ended up not noticing because the water feels great and the fun atmosphere is priceless. We have been to Paris, Disney, Aruba, etc and this trip was the MOST FUN by far!
