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.

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.

We needed a relaxing day and this was perfect, the guide was great and the bus driver drove impeccably. They were friendly and informative and it was beautiful. Wish the river wasn’t so low but that’s not in anyone’s control.

A very leisurely friendly float down the river. Beautiful scenery. Danni was very sweet and entertaining.
Awesome experience and loads of fun!

We had an awesome first experience white water rafting down the Colorado river with David as our guide. We saw some beautiful views and even some local wildlife. Even though the water level was low we still experienced some "rougher" waters on the level I & II rapids and we still got wet! 🤣 We will definitely do this again and next time I think we will be ready for the next level! 😃

Swim a rapid on the colorado river
, Sep 2021
Fun time with nice views of the river, dani and greg our tour guides were awesome. Although the rapids are not too big as we pick the gentler tour if you like get to swim at the nice calm parts of the river or a rapid if you like amazing experience
A Great Rafting Experience
, Sep 2021
Although the rapids were only class when I visited, it was a great introduction to whitewater rafting. Plus, the water was perfect for swimming. It’s also a nice exposure to the geography of the Colorado River. The guides and other staff are experienced, friendly, and emphasize safety. I would definitely recommend this experience for families with high school age kids or older!

Swim through the rapids
, Sep 2021
The rapids are very mild at the end of the season so it’s much more fun to get in the water to ride the rapids. Our guide was fantastic!

I gave them a 4 because the guides redeemed the experience but the office staff and staff member outside of the office when we arrived had a horrible attitude and were really rude.
