What You'll Get
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 $225, you get an all-inclusive overnight Fisher Towers rafting-trip package for two (up to a $450 value) from Red River Adventures in Moab.
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 heavier) with a licensed Utah river guide for a 21-mile adventure along Onion Creek, Professor Creek, Cloudburst, and Ida Gulch. Before provoking the Class II wrath of Poseidon (Class III with the spring runoff, though it drops in late summer), the guides will review safety procedures and outfit swashbucklers with U.S. Coast Guard–approved life jackets. 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. After a fierce day of paddling the surf, adventurers will stretch sea arms on white sands while enjoying a communal dinner and settling into a starlit slumber within provided sleeping bags. Before cruising the tides back to home turf, refuel arm engines with a riverside breakfast.
Red River Adventures will outfit river riders with all necessary safety, camping, 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
