Know More about this tour

From the meeting point, you will be transported up Hwy 128 (Top 10 most scenic highways in America) to Hittle Bottom, approximately 25 miles. This will take 30-45 minutes, depending on traffic and other circumstances.

Once at Hittle Bottom, the river guides will take a few minutes to get the boats and gear off the trailer and ready for the river. When everything is ready your guide will go over some river safety instructions, once everything has been covered you will board the raft. This is a calm water trip, with small rapids, class 1 and 2. Depending on water levels there is the chance for a class 3 rapid on this section. Unless you have requested a paddle boat, your guide will be doing all the rowing, so you get to sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery.

As you make your way down the river to Take-Out Beach, and your departure point for the Full Day tour, your guide will provide you with archeology, geology, and river history. Your guide will also point out various land marks and answer any questions you may have on your journey. You will make a half-way point stop to most likely have some folks disembark and have some new folks join you for the afternoon portion of the river.

Somewhere between Rocky Rapid and the take-out point, your guides will pull over on a nice beach and set up lunch for everyone to enjoy. This stop will last around an hour and then everyone will load back up to continue down the river. Once the raft reaches the take out point at Take-Out Beach, you will disembark from the raft. The guides will then need to load the boats and equipment back up on the trailer, then you will be able to load back up on our shuttle vehicle, and we will bring you back to our office in Moab, concluding your adventure. The drive back from Take-Out Beach could take 30 or more minutes.

    We just recently came back from our National Park's vacation and one of the highlights was the Rafting tour in Moab. Adrift Vacations gave us the best service, we always felt safe and Levi, our guide, was super friendly and gave us the best explanations of our surroundings and more fun things to do while in Moab. Will definitely recommend this vendor to our friends and family.

    This is good for kids, as the rapids area pretty easy. This definitely wasn't white water rafting. There was alot of still river time, and our awesome guide, Dez, head to paddle hard. These lunch the guides prepare is very good, if you go for that option. If you're only doing a half day, we probably enjoyed the morning section more. I'd recommend bringing a snack and some water either way.

    Rafting the Colorado River is the perfect companion to visits to nearby Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. We booked the afternoon trip and were picked up at the Red Cliffs Lodge where we were staying. Pickup was right on time and everything was well organized at the launch site. Actually, it's more of a transfer point. If you book the morning trip with Adrift, they put in higher up the river and end at where we joined the rafts with ours being guided by Austin who did a great job. The full day option just combines the two sections. The lower section which we were on includes the only class 3 rapids on this section of the river. The upper Morning section has more, but lower class rapids We were told. After the class 3 section, our rafts pulled up on the beach and a simple, but good lunch of cold cut sandwiches make your own, chips, salads and water/lemonade was served. Then back on the river for the rest of the trip. The river was near peak when we did this early June so the flow was fast. At the end of the trip, Adrift had both their bus with raft trailer to get most of the folks back to their headquarters in downtown Moab and a small van to return 8 of us to Red Cliffs Lodge...a nice touch since the lodge was in the opposite direction and any other route would have inconvenienced one group or the other.

    All in all, an expertly managed half-day rafting adventure. Highly recommended!
