About This Trip
Cataract Canyon Rafting on the Colorado River through Canyonlands National Park, Utah
Explore Cataract Canyon in the heart of Canyonlands National Park, deep within a 2000 ft. deep crevice and over 30-million-year-old rock formations!! Cataract Canyon rafting, near Moab, Utah, is the premier Utah rafting whitewater experience. This section of the Colorado River treats you to fun, rolling class III and IV rapids all season long. When the Rocky Mountain’s snow melts, May-early July, filling the canyon, the rapids elevate to some of America’s most exciting and challenging class IV and class V rapids!
Whatever season you choose, your 120-mile Cataract Canyon rafting trip begins with relaxation as you get acquainted with the peace, serenity, and solitude of this canyon. We will serenely float (with motor assist) in on flat water and pass deep below the spectacular Dead Horse Point State Park overlook. As we reach the confluence of the Green and Colorado Rivers, in the heart of the Canyonlands National Park, we prepare for the colossal rapids of Cataract Canyon! Brace yourself for these world-class rapids!
Colorado River rafting through Canyonlands National Park also provides some of Utah’s best hiking. As we explore side hikes, only accessible by river, we will be treated to wonderful waterfalls, sculpted sandstone spires, and ancient Anasazi rock art petroglyphs. History abounds as we follow John Wesley Powell’s expedition of 1869.
Every afternoon, camp brings beautiful sandy beaches, relaxation, friendships, stronger family bonds and unforgettable memories.
