Fisher Towers Half-Day Rafting Day Trip from Moab

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    This Moab whitewater rafting tour begins in the middle of town, when you meet your professional whitewater guides at the central Moab office. From here, you’ll receive an intro and safety briefing and get loaded up in the van, which will shuttle you out to the Fishers Tower section of the Colorado River. With its soaring spires, vertical canyons and deeply red-hued rocks, this section of river feels like blissfully remote, despite being so close to town.

    Before boarding the raft for the splash-filled journey, get fitted with a lifejacket and listen as your guide explains the course of the river. Your guide will propel the raft by oars, so you can sit back and enjoy the scenic, sometimes bumpy, cruise. The rapids on this section are Class II-III and are the largest in early summer snow melts. If you choose to paddle an inflatable kayak instead of riding in the raft, your guide will provide a paddling lesson and make sure you can follow commands. 

    As you make your way down the Colorado River, keep your eyes peeled for birds and wildlife that can often be seen on the banks, and listen as your guide explains the history and geology of the rocky canyons. At the end of the journey, after splashing down the river or going for a swim, your trip ends with a short ride back to downtown Moab. 

    Half-Day Rafting Trip:Since there are multiple departures during the day, it’s easy to work your schedule around the 7-mile (11-km) half-day rafting trip. Lunch along the riverside is included with noon departures.

    We did the half day rafting from Fisher Towers, and a fun trip was made even better by our talented and knowledgeable guide Ryan. During our early fall trip, there was just enough excitement with some class III rapids to get us slightly damp and impress us with what the river

    We really enjoyed our afternoon and Hunter, our guide was great! We learned a lot about the history, the rock formations, and the ecology of the area, all while being entertained. The water was very calm, but it was still an enjoyable trip.
