DAY 1 »
Enjoy a short morning drive after your departure from Moab, Utah along the winding river road to the launching point. Once the boat is launched onto a quiet section of the Colorado River, you will drift into a world of towering geological wonders that will wash away the bustle of the world you left behind. You’ll soon be amazed to encounter Native American ruins and petroglyphs as well as remnants of a petrified forest. From cliff-side hiking, you will be awed by the sublime vistas and natural grandeur before you continue to meander down the river. Around midday you’ll satisfy your hunger with a savory buffet lunch on the banks of the river. After lunch, the cliffs soar to greater heights as the canyon deepens to over 2,000 feet. The river crashes down the canyon with nearly 30 whitewater rapids including Capsize, the Big Drops, the Mile Longs, Little Niagara, Satan’s Gut and Repeat. After a full day of exhilarating excitement, you’ll relax in the riverside camp as we prepare a scrumptious sunset dinner. As the evening wears thin, you’ll be lulled to sleep by the crackling campfire and the swirling river as a field of stars envelops the sky.
