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.

    A completely fantastic day with Jacob, who with his knowledge, humor and "age" managed to give everyone in our family a great trip down the colorado river!

    We had a great time and Kelly was awesome, at this time of year (late July) water is down and a bit calm. We will try again when it’s a bit more exciting. After seeing the bigger companies and the amount of people, we were very happy we chose adrift.

    Highly recommend adrift adventures! Very reasonable price and the guides were really knowledgeable. We got lucky and had the best one in our opinion. His name was Jacob and we highly recommend requesting him. I came with my family of 8 and he remembered all our names and engaged and asked us all questions. He was super funny and had a lot of fun facts. We had an absolute blast. We do this trip every summer, but this was the first time with this company. We will definately be coming back and will be requesting Jacob again. I would recommend bringing lots of sunscreen and your own waterbottle. They have things to refill, but make sure your drinking enough as it's easy to overheat.

    This was a really fun day trip for our family of 4. The staff is friendly and funny. We reserved our trip online, then checked in the day before our trip to complete the waivers. You have to arrive at 8am for the morning or full day tour, where they get you fitted for life vests, then you take a 45 minute bus ride to the launching point. The first few miles on the river are peaceful with beautiful scenery, and our guide was very informative and answered my kids' many questions. There are several fun rapids on the first section; the water level was pretty high so they weren't too rough. Our kids are 8 and 10 and it felt safe and fun for them. You stop for lunch on a sandy spot along the river, the staff sets up a table with sandwiches, sides and cookies. They also provide water refills if you bring your own water bottle. Definitely bring sun screen, sunglasses and a hat, and shoes and clothes you don't mind getting wet. The bus ride home is only about 20 minutes. The day we chose was unseasonably windy and cold in the morning, so definitely bring a long sleeve layer just in case, even in the summer. There seemed to be fewer rapids on the second half (afternoon) portion of the trip, so if you have to choose between AM or PM i would do AM, although if we do it again we would still opt for the full day option.

    Our river trip was great! Sam was a great guide, very friendly and knowledgeable of the river and the surrounding area. The Fisher Towers trip was mostly scenic with a few easy and splashy rapids (Class I and II). The provided lunch was a good and more than enough. Overall highly recommend this trip and Adrift Adventures.

    We loved the relaxing day on the river. Beautiful scenery and Sam our guide was awesome. We would definitely go back for another trip.

    Our family of 4 had a fun time on this trip. Ian was a knowledgeable tour guide and pointed out interesting sites on the ride. Rapids were fun but most of the ride was flat water which got a little boring.
