Full description

Discover Westwater Canyon while riding 3-4 class rapids on this whitewater rafting tour. Learn about the flora and fauna of the area and discover the beauty of the Colorado River together with your guide.

Start your tour from the designated meeting point or with hotel pickup in Moab. Hop aboard a shuttle van that will drive you along the scenic Colorado River to the Westwater Canyon boat launch. Take a moment to prepare while your guides ready the boats and provide a pre-launch safety talk. Then, it's time to get on the water.  Head down through the Colorado River's steep narrow gorge. Take in the sights and sounds of this beautiful canyon. Stop at midday to enjoy a buffet-style picnic lunch on a sandy beach before getting back onto the river for a majority of the whitewater.
