Overview

Moab is blessed with the Colorado River running right through the middle of the desert, and on this Moab whitewater rafting tour, experience a scenic float down the river that also has Class III rapids. This tour takes place near Fishers Tower, which is just on the outskirts of Moab, where you can swim in the river, photograph wildlife, and listen as your guide explains the geology and history behind the canyons.  With various departures during the day at 9:00 am, 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm, the half-day trip can fit into most schedules. Bring the whole family on a fun-filled half-day Colorado River trip that runs about 7 river miles (11 km) with fantastic scenery and moderate rapids. Noon departures include a lunch by the riverside.
  • Half-day white-water rafting trip from Moab

This activity will end right where it started.
This Moab whitewater rafting tour begins in the middle of town, when you meet your professional whitewater guides at the central Moab office. From here, you’ll receive an intro and safety briefing and get loaded up in the van, which will shuttle you out to the Fishers Tower section of the Colorado River. With its soaring spires, vertical canyons and deeply red-hued rocks, this section of river feels like blissfully remote, despite being so close to town.

Before boarding the raft for the splash-filled journey, get fitted with a lifejacket and listen as your guide explains the course of the river. Your guide will propel the raft by oars, so you can sit back and enjoy the scenic, sometimes bumpy, cruise. The rapids on this section are Class II-III and are the largest in early summer snow melts. If you choose to paddle an inflatable kayak instead of riding in the raft, your guide will provide a paddling lesson and make sure you can follow commands. 

As you make your way down the Colorado River, keep your eyes peeled for birds and wildlife that can often be seen on the banks, and listen as your guide explains the history and geology of the rocky canyons. At the end of the journey, after splashing down the river or going for a swim, your trip ends with a short ride back to downtown Moab. 

Half-Day Rafting Trip:Since there are multiple departures during the day, it’s easy to work your schedule around the 7-mile (11-km) half-day rafting trip. Lunch along the riverside is included with noon departures.

Scenery was beautiful and it was a relaxing trip. Even with a short rain storm. Actually thought there would be more class 3 rapids instead if 1 & 2. Guide Carter was very knowledgeable and strong.

It was a two hour mild rafting trip. Little to no white water. More of a river float. Guides were nice. The wind was against us so we had a hard time getting down the river as well.

Fun but….

Our guides - Elijah and Ryan - were SUPER! Very informative and fun! But the adventure was more of a river float than a white water rafting trip. We kind of wanted/hoped for a more exciting ride. You can’t beat the scenery, however. Lower your expectations if the water level is low.

We had an excellent guide, Luke. He was very personable and told fun/interesting stories. I sat up front so I got nice and soaked which is what I wanted. We even made friends with some of the other guests! However, there was another guide Lake, who was rude to Luke and I didn't appreciate it. He also threw the water proof bag with our phones in it and shrugged it off when Luke called him out for it. Not cool bro. Everyone else was nice and lunch was good. Totally would go again!!

Expected white water rafting, but we just floated down a river for 2 hours.
Nick_D
, Apr 2022
Elijah, our guide, was engaging and funny. Unfortunately we feel completely miss-sold and robbed of our money. The image and info on the advert implies that there would be some class 3+ rapids and that we would be paddling. In reality the rapids were barely noticeable and only the guide paddled with 2 large oars. There was zero adrenaline, which exactly why you do these things. I didn't even get wet! Although the Colorado river was nice. It got pretty boring after 30mins and the scenery didn't change. The advert should be updated with more accurate information (perhaps regarding seasonal river flow rate and resulting rapids) and also a picture that reflects the actual experience!

Windy disaster

The wind was horrible our poor guide was worked to death. He had I guess the wrong oars. We had to get off the river half way and hike up to the road There was no communication with base camp for this kind of disaster

Awful experience!

Navtec expedition didnt send the correct size life jackets for multiple Kids in our group (including 2 of ours) and others. We werent allowed to raft because of safety concerns( rightfully so) expressed by the raft guide( who was actually nice and apologised). Navtec asked me to call viator myself to process the refund. They couldnt accommodate any other activity for the rest of the afternoon either. They did apologise for the mix up- but I think its basic planning that failed! Total waste of a full day in beautiful Moab! Dont recommend!

The rapids were the most exciting, even getting wet was awesome. The kids wanted more rapids but maybe next time we will book the all day with more rapids. Our tour guide, Luke, was awesome especially for that being his first time without a trainer. Thanks Luke for an amazing time.
