Westwater Canyon Rafting Expedition
This exciting raft excursion will take thrill-seekers through a dozen of world-class rapids, including Class III and IV rapids, such as Funnel Falls, Big Hummer, Skull Rapid and more, for a wildly entertaining ride. In addition to the fast-paced excitement of the rafting, you'll also experience magnificent natural beauty with native wildlife, brilliant amber canyons and beautiful water.
Before departure, your expert guide will lead you through an orientation on safety in the back country waters of the unsurpassable Colorado River. You'll start your tour at 7:15 a.m., though meeting at least 15 minutes before the tour starts is required. Guides drive you to the river, where they will unload the rafts and fit you with a life jacket. From there, your full-day river expedition begins. After the adventure, you'll return to 'Cisco Pumps,' where your ride will be waiting to take you back to Moab by 5:00 p.m.
First, you'll visit Wild Horse Canyon to see the 'Miner's Cabin.' Look below the canyon walls to see the black rock shining in the reflection of the sun. You'll float past the historic gold mining camp as the water picks up speed. Around Little Dolores, you'll stop for lunch before continuing on. At Little Dolores Rapid, the power of the water strengthens for an exciting, adrenaline-pumping adventure. Your guides will then relay the tales of 'Cowboy Cave' as you near Marble Canyon Rapid, then move on to 'Big Hummer,' 'Funnel Falls,' 'Surprise,' 'Skull Rapid' and 'Sock It to Me.' You'll travel seventeen miles; four and a half of them consist of eleven rapids.
