Paddle Board on the Colorado River

Experience one of the most scenic, relaxing and rewarding tours in Moab - stand up paddleboarding on the Colorado River! Your journey begins at the Moab Adventure Center where you’ll be fitted with a PFD (Personal Flotation Device) before a 20 minute drive to a sandy beach along the river where we’ll set off.

On the beach, your guide will fit you with a paddle and paddle board before providing some brief instruction both on the sand and in the water. With our long 10-12 foot Surftech paddle boards, most people generally get the hang of stand up paddle boarding within just a few minutes. Once everyone is comfortable, we’ll push off for a fantastic experience on the river.

You’ll paddle past towering sandstone cliffs, catching the occasional glimpse of a great blue heron, a bighorn sheep, or a climber scaling the rock walls along the river’s edge. Your guide will provide any needed assistance and instruction as well as insights about the fascinating geology that surrounds us. You’ll have time to paddle, swim and just lie on your back in the sun as we drift down river.

Midway through our journey, we’ll take a break on a beach and have snacks and water. Once we reach the takeout point along the river, we’ll pack up all the paddleboards and supplies before heading back to Moab.

NOTE: If a member of your party does not wish to paddleboard, but still wants to float along, we will be happy to provide an inflatable kayak (duckie).

    The Colorado River is not all whitewater rapids. It's smooth flowing waters are perfect for drifting through the canyon corridors.

    Physical Fitness Facts

    Stand up paddleboarding offers an excellent full-body workout for the abdomen, back, arms and legs. Top that off with a swim in the river and you’ll earn the relaxing sun-bathe on your paddleboard and a well-deserved meal back in town.

    A new trend of paddleboard fitness classes and even paddleboard yoga is emerging as many find the combination of balancing on the board while exercising helps train the body equally for strength, balance and power.

    SUP races have sprung up everywhere from New Zealand to the Netherlands.

    Megan was our guide for our stand up paddle board trip in Moab. She was very personable and did an awesome job guiding us down river for the afternoon. This was a first time Stand up paddle board experience for the four of us and we all had an amazing time. We even got into a few yoga poses and did some planks and push ups on the boards as we went down river. We highly recommend the Moab Adventure Center and Megan for a Stand up paddle board experience that you will totally enjoy. We will definitely be back again for another excellent adventure. Thanks!!!
