Full description
Experience the Colorado River's most popular Moab rafting section on a full-day rafting adventure. You will get a choice of raft or kayak, and experience beautiful scenery conveniently close to town, making for more time on the river and less time traveling. After check-in at the Moab office, head off to the river. A short, scenic, drive takes you to the launch site at Onion Creek. Here, your guides will review safety procedures and go over the necessary rafting skills. Now it’s time to hit the water! You will be treated to views of the majestic Fisher Towers before you hear the unmistakable sound of whitewater ahead. Raft through rapids including Onion Creek, Professor Creek, Cloudburst, Rocky Rapid, and Whites Rapid. These are always, at least class II and class III in May and June. When water levels drop and the temperatures rise it's time to swim along the way! The lower part of this trip features breathtaking canyon scenery, plenty of time to relax, and a few more splashy thrills.
  • Transportation to and from the river from our office on Main Street
  • All safety equipment

Amazing experience, outstanding scenery, best guides!

The rafting on the Colorado River with Red River Adventures was my very first one but I felt very comfortable because I got a special training from our guide, Larry, beforehand. The rapids made me a bit scared before we started but after the first one I was pumped with adrenaline and couldn’t wait for the next to come. If you are a beginner too, don’t worry! There were lots of children taking part in it. Our guide was on the boat the whole time. He led the group, gave us instructions and told us some interesting facts about Moab, Onion Creak and even movies which were shot there (e.g. „The Lone Ranger”). There was also a delicious & healthy lunch (with lots of fresh vegetables) in the middle of the trip, prepared by the guides. And the landscape was just unbelievable! The tour was perfectly organized. I recommend it to everyone. Thank you Red River Adventures! And special thanks to Larry!

A great experience

The guide was great and told us to relax. The rapids were great and we always felt safe. Lunch was also freshly prepared and was extensive. All in all, a great day with great experiences and good information. I can only recommend the day tour.
