    Rafting Colorado River Experience Moab’s famous river rafting with your private guide and raft. Your group will enjoy air-conditioned transportation along the scenic Highway 128, your professional guide, and a rafting experience to remember! This half-day rafting trip is a family-friendly mild-to-moderate whitewater experience with plenty of tranquil float time. Relax and simply gaze at the astounding beauty of canyon country while your
    guide rows you down the Colorado River or boost your group activity level by paddling along. Trips average 2 ½ hours on the water (total trip time from Sorrel River Ranch about 3.5 hours) along the famous Fisher Towers section of theColorado River just outside of Moab.

    This “bucket-list” section of the Colorado River is characterized by wide-open desert vistas and mesas, flanked by soaring red rock walls and capped off by a stunning view of
    the LaSal Mountains in the distance. Your professional guide can’t wait to share information about the wild landscapes through which you float. Ask about geology of the magnificent canyons, river ecology, desert nutrient systems, flora and fauna, and human history of the area. Or simply enjoy some quiet float time while you “tap in” to the world of the river.

  • Tips

    Some of our guests like to experience a wide range of activities, whereas others want a more immersive experience. For river rafting, there are several choices available:

    • Half-Day: The Fisher Towers section of Colorado runs right past the Ranch, providing easy access so you can make the most of your time on the river.
    • Full Day: For a wilder adventure, Westwater Canyon is a bit further upriver, offering a full day of exploration, or there is Cataract Canyon to the south within Canyonlands National Park.
    • Longer Tours: Trips ranging from overnight to several days include starry nights, gourmet meals, and allow you to explore more remote sections like Desolation Canyon along the Green River.

    Whatever you pick, it will be the experience of a lifetime!

  • Essentials

    All of our Colorado River adventures include the safety equipment and other essentials, but here are a few suggestions to bring on your adventure to assure your comfort:

    • Shorts or a bathing suit with a “quick-dry” fabric;
    • One shirt that is a synthetic material is recommended for sun protection and cooler mornings or evenings (cotton fabrics are typically not a great choice)
    • You’ll need good footwear, not flip-flops but either sandals with straps, sneakers, or even wetsuit boots, and a few changes of socks.
    • A breathable hat (woven) with a brim to protect face from sun.
    • Sunglasses with a strap.
