Barrel cactus in bloomBoatmen row you down the Colorado River's steep narrow gorge, expertly negotiating rapids; while you take in the sights and sounds of this remarkable canyon. Paddle rafts provide more active participation and are available on most trips.

The Colorado River through Westwater Canyon is known for its wildlife, thrilling whitewater and canyon geology. At noon we'll find a nice beach and pull ashore. After a great lunch you'll have time to relax in the shade, take pictures and enjoy the beauty of the canyon.

Twelve class III/IV rapids with names like Funnel Falls, Skull, and Sock It To Me challenge river runners. 

Paddle boat in Westwater CanyonWestwater Canyon was created where the Colorado River cut across the edge of an ancient Precambrian mountain range. This is the oldest rock exposed on the planet at 1.75 billion years, almost half the age of earth. This very hard basement rock forces the river into a narrow canyon creating outstanding whitewater.

You'll never forget this first class adventure! Space is limited. Call our office for current information.
