Colorado River/Westwater Canyon (Class 3-4) One-day whitewater (Departs daily)
This proposed Wild and Scenic River is totally isolated from modern civilization. Westwater Canyon is a canyon of serene solitude surrounded by red sandstone spires. The river cascades through the ever-deepening sandstone monuments and into the narrow Black Granite Gorge. Here the river meets opposition from the canyon walls creating the fast and furious rapids such as Funnel Falls, Last Chance, The Steps, and of course, the infamous Skull Rapid that give Westwater its reputation of highly exciting rafting trips on the Colorado.
This trip is designed for adventure seekers and canyon lovers and especially those looking for great rapids on a remote and regulated river. The number of people allowed to run the Westwater Canyon is strictly regulated, therefore, keeping the number of people on the river to a very small amount. This will allow for a better chance of seeing wildlife and just experiencing the true remoteness of the Westwater Canyon.
Meet at our office at 6:45 am. Departs daily at 7:00 am; Return about 5:00 pm
