Guests meet at 8:00 am at our office at 625 Riversands Road, where you can park your car at our enclosed property. Once you are checked in and your car is secure, we recommend you leave your car keys behind in our office so they don’t take a swim if you do. The trip begins with a beautiful 45-minute drive along the Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway, a stretch of highway famous for its breathtaking views of sandstone cliffs, desert valleys, and lush river bottoms. Upon arrival at the launch site, your trip leader and guides will give an orientation on river safety and you’ll push off into the flowing water and get underway. Splashy rapids and magnificent scenery will fill the day, and at lunch time you'll pull over to a beach for a refreshing buffet-style meal. Winding canyon views and a sandy beach for playing will finish off your adventure, returning to Moab about 3:30 pm.
