Westwater Canyon – Raft the Colorado River
With its hard-kicking class III-IV rapids and polished black Pre-Cambrian gorge, Westwater presents a unique opportunity for a "Grand Canyon-like" adventure in a much shorter period of time. National Geographic Magazine called Westwater Canyon "The World's Best Short Whitewater Trip." We offer 1, and 2-Day Westwater Canyon rowing expeditions. A 1-day trip is fun and exciting, but spending a night on the river will give you more time to absorb Westwater's wild character and beautiful scenery.
Westwater Canyon is located on the upper Colorado River near the Utah-Colorado border.

Our 18-foot row rafts accomodate 4-5 passengers plus the guide who rows the boat.
To many people the off-river hiking is as spectacular as the river corridor itself. We specialize in off-river hiking on all of our river expeditions. We are certain you will see places on our expeditions most river travelers miss.
Upon arrival, each participant will be given a large water-proof bag for clothing and personal items. Another water-proof bag will contain your provided sleeping bag, foam Paco Pad, and a large plastic ground tarp. Our water-proof bags are 30 inches high and have a diameter of 14 inches.
Each participant will also receive an ammo can. It is always readily accesible during the day and is the best place to keep sunscreen, cameras, notebooks, etc.
Our Kitchen includes everything we need to make delicious food. Dutch Ovens, Fire Pans, Propane Stove, Tables and Drink Coolers. Our boats carry everything we need for the entire trip.
Our sleep kit includes a fresly laundered sleeping bag. Our sleeping bags are made in the USA by Wiggy Inc. Wiggy also makes sleeping bags for the US Airforce.
We supply tents from Kelty & ALPS, but generally the night sky is so spectacular that most people want to sleep out under the stars.
We supply camp chairs on all of our rafting expeditions.
A handwash device is set-up at lunch and in camp. It is mandatory for guests to wash hands before meals and after using the bathroom.
One of our toilets is always enclosed by a roomy yellow tent. It allows privacy as well as a place to change your clothes.
Our specially designed toilet makes the fear of using camp toilets go away. It is the most sanitary and clean toilet ever to be used on an outdoor expedition. It has a fly proof lid and utilizes a special chemical along with specially designed plastic bags that allow it to be set-up clean everyday. It has the ability to hold solid waste as well as urine. Along with the toilet, Lysol and toilet paper are always located inside the tent.
