Moab River Rafting In Utah
Castle Valley is the poster child for Western landscapes. You’ve probably already seen it somewhere in a movie, TV show, or even commercials. And if somehow you have, in fact, never laid eyes on Castle Valley before, you’re not going forget it once you do! It’s a looker, no doubt.
This serene section of the Colorado River moseys through a big beautiful valley before cutting through a towering red rock canyon. Along the way are some of Moab’s most impressive geologic features like Fisher Towers, Castleton Tower, the Priest and Nuns, and so on.
As for the river, the water’s warm from late spring to early fall. You’ll spend most of your time floating, with a few Class II rapids to splash you up when you need it. Expect river games and river puns, splash fights, and lots of fun interpretations from your river guide along the way.
Those looking for more adventure usually opt for a kayak to take on the Colorado themselves, while loungers on the rafts soak in the Utah sun. Now, if the sound of Castle Valley isn’t floating your boat, check out Cataract Canyon for the biggest and baddest whitewater in Utah.
