I visited Moab by myself and signed up for the 6 hour rafting trip. There were 2 other people (a couple) and Sav, our leader. It was a great time on the river! Sav talked about the geology in the canyon and pointed out a bald eagle flying by and nesting on the canyon wall. We also floated past the set of Horizon, Kevin Costner’s latest movie project. It was just a delightful day despite a few rain showers, that actually, made the trip more interesting in a way. I highly recommend it!

Josh was a great guide. Friendly, knowledgeable, and a good guy. We did the 6-hour tour of the Colorado river. It was mostly calm waters with a few fun bumps. I think next time we will go with a higher grade of whitewater. But this was a beautiful, scenic ride. Our only slight complaint is the fact that the shuttle bus did not have seatbelts.

Rafting very tame, guide Dave excellent and he made us a delicious lunch. Actual ride about two hours.

Great river guide and lots of fun! I felt very safe and comfortable and enjoyed it thoroughly!

Very helpful tour and gives a lot of information especially if you are new to the area.
