Our 1-Day Rafting Trip Options

Lunch on Westwater Canyon on a River Trip

Whitewater Dory River Trips

Westwater Canyon 1-Day

This trip has traditionally been rafted in 2-days, but in recent years it has become extremely popular as a 1-day section. This is one of the most beautiful sections of the Colorado River. The rapids in Westwater Canyon are always fun and exciting. We love to run this trip for groups and can supply roundtrip transportation from Green River, Utah or Moab, Utah. This is a very popular section and we have a limited amount of launch dates so it is a good idea to request this trip months in advance.

Moab Daily Section (also called Fisher Towers 1-Day)

This is the most popular 1-day stretch in Utah. There are plenty of small rapids and the scenery is out of this world. Float in your lifejacket, have a water fight, paddle your own "ducky" through the rapids, its all up to you. Just grab your hat, sunscreen, and swimsuit, we'll do the rest.

Green River Daily

This is the ticket if you want to have a fun day on the river with-out all of the crowds of Moab. Like the Moab section there are fun rapids and pretty scenery. We also offer the "ducky" option on this trip.

Whitewater Dory 1-Day

Experience the thrill of a hard-hulled boat on the mighty Colorado River. Our 1-Day Dory trips are limited to four people and are a great way to enjoy the river life. We can fully customize your 1-day Dory trip for you. Anything is possible with such a small intimate group.
