Undoubtedly the finest one day expedition anywhere. Run the mighty Colorado River down Cataract Canyon on the NAVTEC exclusive whitewater RHIB. (rigid hull inflatable boat)
This famous 100 mile section of the Colorado travels into the heart of Canyonlands and through 30 world class rapids.
Watch for wildlife as you take in the canyon vistas along the upper lazy river miles. Rafting the Colorado on a RHIB means there is time for swimming, hiking or relaxing in the shade. Canyonlands National Park is an outstanding wilderness setting where photographic opportunities abound. Enjoy a buffet-style picnic lunch on the banks of the river. Downstream we pass the Confluence of the Green River, and enter the much anticipated whitewater.
Our Whitewater RHIB (rigid hull inflatable boat) gives you a fun and stable ride. These small and competent craft navigate the thrilling whitewater of the North Seas, Hell-to-Pay, and the Big Drop rapids.
Cataract Canyon is one of the most exciting one-day river trips in the United States. During the months of May and June, snow melt from the Rocky Mountains makes for a day of super-charged whitewater action. Water levels become more moderate during summer and fall months, but the whitewater is still impressive. The maneuverability of the RHIB guarantees you will have an incredible experience no matter what the flow.
After hitting the rapids, a thirty mile run across Lake Powell brings us to the end of our trip. We leave the water at Hite Marina. You then have three options; return to Moab by ground transportation, by scenic flight, or have your personal vehicle shuttled to Hite for your arrival. Prices and timetables for the return options are listed below.
