Whitewater rafting mixes pleasant scenery with moments of heart-racing excitement, similar to hiking the forest with an alarm clock-controlled defibrillator. Live for the minute with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a full-day Fisher Towers whitewater-rafting trip from Red River Adventures in Moab (a $64 value).
The professional guides at Red River Adventures expose adventurous individuals to the rugged and untamed splendor of Utah's rocks, rivers, and canyons with trips designed for all skill levels. The Fisher Towers whitewater-rafting trips pair smaller, intimate groups of four to six paddlers (40 lbs. or more) with a licensed Utah river guide for a 14-mile adventure along Onion Creek, Professor Creek, Cloudburst, and Ida Gulch. Before provoking the Class III wrath of Poseidon, the guides will review safety procedures and outfit swashbucklers with U.S. Coast Guard–approved lifejackets. From the safety of the river-faring craft, paddlers absorb a soaring view of the Fisher Towers, as well as canyon walls that line the waterway and enable time-bending communication with ancient yodelers.
Midway through the trip, adventurers will stretch sea arms on white sands while enjoying a provided lunch under the shade of the riverside cottonwood trees.
Red River Adventures will outfit river riders with all necessary safety and boating equipment to traverse the flushing frontier. Transportation will also be provided to and from the launch site, eliminating the need for land rafts and heavy-duty dirt paddles.
- The canyon is beautiful, the water refreshing and lunch was a tasty, healthy spread. I'd go with them again and consider a longer trip if I had the time. – mmil95, TripAdvisor
- It was an excellent adventure and I would suggest it to anyone. And I would like to point out that the lunch was fantastic. Everything was fresh and wraps were great with plenty to go around. – Bearwii, TripAdvisor
