Intermediate Moab Utah Rafting and Kayaking Options
San Miguel – Do the Twist!
You’ve got mountains to the left, desert to your right, and class II rapids the whole time. The San Miguel River flows in a tight canyon where guests need to help paddle around rocks and bends. This bumpy waterway moves at a quick pace past aspen groves and red sandstone walls. You can raft the San Miguel for half-day to 3-day trips. The age requirement for the upper section is 10-years-old while the more mild lower section is 8-years-old.
Desolation Canyon – Dive into Warm Water and a lot of History
Rafting through Desolation Canyon is a great intermediate trip. The start includes a flight above the canyon, so you get to see the river from all angles! The Green River offers class III rapids and history lessons you’ll actually enjoy. Ancient ruins, dinosaur sites, and Butch Cassidy hideouts remain nestled in rock walls taller than the Grand Canyon at times. You can take a full-day trip or stay awhile and camp up to five days.

Cataract Canyon – Hold on Tight Friends, the Water Roars!
Cataract Canyon is Utah whitewater at its best. This is a high adventure, multi-day trip through Canyonlands National Park. Depending on the time of year, the Colorado River will form class V rapids beneath the towering sandstone, but you can always count on class III and IV drops and splashes. While the rapids are impressive, you’ll have plenty of time to cruise past sites like Dead Horse Point and Anasazi pictographs. You can raft two to five days in Cataract Canyon.
