Experience the beauty and thrills of rafting in Utah during a full-day trip on the Westwater Canyon section of the Colorado River. Get an adrenaline rush as expert guides take you through rapids like Marble Canyon, Sock-It-To-Me, Funnel Falls and Skull, then relax and take in the scenery during calm water sections with rest breaks at riverside beaches. The stunning red rock canyon scenery combined with Class III and IV white-water provides an unforgettable outdoor experience suitable for adventurous people who love a challenge.
What You'll Get
The Westwater Canyon formed when the Colorado River cut across an ancient mountain range, the water channeling through hard rock to create the narrow canyon. Learn about the geology of the area from your guide, as well as its history and wildlife. You may see petroglyphs as well as remnants of the wild west such as old mining cabins and even an outlaw’s grave. Look for bald eagles roosting in old-growth cottonwood trees, river otters playing in the eddies and beavers slapping their tails.
Get started in the morning after making your way to the office in central Moab. Meet your guide for a safety orientation, then get outfitted with a lifejacket and other necessary gear. A van transfers you to the put-in site on the river where your guide gives a safety briefing and paddle lesson. Then step into your boat, push off from the bank and start down the Westwater Canyon section of the Colorado River.
Full-day Rafting Trip with Lunch
Your full-day rafting trip through Westwater Canyon provides both challenging white water and stunning scenery. Raft through 12 Class III and IV rapids including Funnel Falls, Skull and Sock It To Me. Your expert guide rows your oarboat through the rapids while you hang on and enjoy the thrills and splashes. On most trips, paddleboats are also available and participants help power the raft while following directions from the guide. Between bouncy white-water sections, take in the stunning scenery of the canyon.
At noon your guide steers you to shore for a delicious buffet lunch on a riverside beach. Have time to rest in the shade, snap pictures and soak up the canyon’s beauty. Once you're refreshed, hit the river again for more fun. At the end of an exciting day of rafting, your guide returns you to Moab.
