Rafting on the Colorado River

Howdy River Runners!

NAVTEC can rent you whitewater rafts along with paddles, Coast Guard-approved life jackets and the other necessary equipment for a great do-it-yourself river trip. Call and talk to our knowledgeable staff about which stretches of the river are best suited for your plans and experience. They can help you design a trip and rent you the gear for a memorable river experience in Utah's redrock country. Here are a couple quick guidelines to follow:

  • A private river trip should be regarded as a common adventure by all participants. Charging trip participant fees in excess of actual trip costs is considered commercial guiding and not allowed without the proper permits.
  • Your safety is your responsibility. River runners assume complete responsibility for their own safety.
  • The group should have a reasonable knowledge of the difficulty of the run.
  • Wear your life jacket. A snugly-fitting life preserver offers the flotation needed to float safely in water. It doesn’t do you any good if it is too loose or being used as a pillow.
  • Taking care of youself is important, stay hydrated, wear sunscreen, and keep cool.
