Cataract Canyon Rafting
A Cataract Canyon 6 day rafting trip is the premier Colorado River experience in Utah. Expect all the time you need to discover the history, scenery, and excitement of Utah’s most sought-after rafting trip.
Nearly a week in Cataract Canyon promises for impressive hikes, ample time on the beach, and at least two days splashing through some of the biggest waves on the Colorado River. Some of the sites along with way include: Huge fields of sparkling petrified wood, ancient ruins and petroglyphs, looming hikes to the Dolls House, side canyons seldom seen by most visitors, and more.
As for the whitewater section, you’ll have time to enjoy more waves as some of them can be run multiple times! Choose your vessel of choice in the smaller oar boat where the waves will, in fact, rock you like a hurricane, or the motor boat that can take on the big drops head on.
The schedule is a very flexible on this trip since there’s more time to cover the 96 mile journey. The first 50 miles are flat water, so we motor through this section (stopping to enjoy the sites along the way) as we travel deeper into this world of red rock.
Shortly after meeting the Green River confluence in the heart of Canyonlands National Park, the whitewater can be heard rumbling downstream. This rapid section lasts for around 16 miles, and is run both in oar boats and the motor rig. After that, we’ll start motoring after Gypsum Canyon to the North Wash takeout for about 28 miles.
Cataract Canyon 6-Day trips start at $1499.
