Rowing CraftOur one and two day trips average out to approximately one guide for every six guests. This trip offers some of the wildest whitewater during the months of April/May/June and into July. From July to October, the river calms itself with lower waters; but by no means is it placid! Please be aware that water levels fluctuate yearly and it is difficult to determine exact water levels and flows during a departure week. This trip is on motorized J-Rigs. This specially designed boat allows for safe and exciting rides at all water levels. Please wear a warm jacket for early morning departures for spring and fall trips. Both trips depart from the Potash Ramp which is 17 miles downstream from Moab.

CATARACT CANYON

This 120-mile expedition takes you through the renowned Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park. It offers some of the wildest, most exciting whitewater in the country during the months of May, June and early July, when the spring run-off fills the canyon's watercourse with raging torrents. From July to October, the river calms itself with lower water, but is by no means placid. Later summer offers pristine sandbars and warm water. Those interested in doing more hikes in Canyonlands National Park will be interested in our 6 day trip, which offers an emphasis on hiking.

Our Cataract expeditions float you past the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers through the challenging rapids of Cataract Canyon in the midst of Canyonlands.
