Proposed "Wild & Scenic River" Join us on a two day river trip down the mighty Colorado River through Westwater Canyon. Experience great whitewater rapids in a steep narrow gorge. You'll run Funnel Falls, Sock-It-To-Me and the formidable Skull Rapid. At night you'll relax over a gourmet dinner with the rivers soothing sounds.
A classic canyon of the American southwest, Westwater Canyon protects our wild west heritage with old mining cabins, petroglyphs, and an outlaw grave. Old growth Cottonwood trees provide roosts for Bald Eagles. River Otters are often spotted playing in eddies, and beaver can be heard slapping their tails after dark.
We'll stop for lunch on the river's edge where your guide will serve a tasty buffet style picnic. After eating we prepare for the big whitewater with an in-depth safety talk. One of the great characteristics of Westwater Canyon is that the rapids are good at almost any water level. So, no matter what time of year you'll encounter exciting whitewater that demonstrates the power and magic of the Colorado River.
As evening invades the canyon we set camp along the river. A western style meal is prepared by boatmen over the embers of an open fire. Later, fresh baked dessert in a dutch oven will be the touch to end a perfect day. We have some of the darkest skies in the country and on a clear summer night the Milky Way is a prominent and beautiful sight.
Morning brings a hot cup of coffee and a hearty breakfast. We load the boats and continue along the Colorado River for another great day. We'll pass Postcard Alley on our way to Professor Valley where moderate rapids await us. Some river runners try inflatable kayaking. Others relax on the oar boat and take in the scenery that has made this area world famous. Contact our office to arrange this remarkable two day trip.
