First rafting experience for children (7, 10 and 12 years old) really very successful The landscapes are magnificent The great guide let us swim several times next to the raft and we even did a mini "rapid" in the water The rapids are rather calm but the boat got stuck on a rock which we really liked. A great experience that we highly recommend!! Don't forget sunscreen and cap

A great trip! For us it was the first time rafting. We had our 8 year old son with us and wanted to take it easy. The rapids were ideal for entry. The guide was also great (Luke). He clearly enjoyed his job and is a really happy person. He also gave us great background and information about the area. The only point deducted is the transport. Our hotel was the Red Cliffs Lounge. We could only select various other points in and around Moab as the pickup point. But then the bus drove past the Red Cliffs Lounge. Maybe you can add this as a pick-up point.

We had such a great experience on our 1/2 day rafting trip. The scenery is beautiful! Our guide was Carter, and I highly recommend requesting him. He made the trip so fun and informative. He taught each of my kids to row properly and did it with such encouragement, patience, and fun! This was a highlight of our cross country trip!
