Moab Adventures – Rafting Cataract Canyon

Moab is full of fantastic outdoor adventures, but there is nothing quite like whitewater rafting through Cataract Canyon. Stay with us at the finest resort in Moab, Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa, and take on this whitewater journey head first. Float through the calming flat waters and rage through the rapids as this rafting trip will throw it all at you.

Cataract Canyon begins on the calm waters of the Colorado River. You won’t see strong rapids until the Colorado and the Green Rivers meet. Once you hit the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers, hold on tight because it’s going to be a bumpy ride. You will crash through the Brown Betty Rapids, Mile Long Rapids, Big Drop Rapids and Dark Canyon Rapids. While the beginning of the trip is calm and relaxing, the second section will test you and your rafting acumen.

These rafting trips can last between 1, 3 and 6 days. The 1 day trips are perfect for those who just want a taste of whitewater rafting. The 3 day trips work well for weekend rafting getaways or part of an extended trip. 6 day trips are for those who really want the full whitewater and camping experience. The 3 and 6 day trips typically cover the same areas, but longer trips are usually more expensive.

Whitewater rafting through Cataract Canyon is a great family vacation or a group retreat. As long as you don’t have small children, rafting trips are a great family bonding experience. These trips are also perfect for business retreats requiring extensive teamwork and building team unity. No matter who makes up your rafting group, you are bound to have a blast.
