DAY 1: Groups meet at 9:30 am at our office at 625 Riversands Road, where you can park your car at our enclosed property. Sleeping bags, tents, and other personal items you don’t need on the river will be packed into a large trailer that will meet you in camp. 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 60-min 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. You’ll find a refreshing cold cut sandwich lunch waiting when you arrive at the launch site. After an orientation on river safety, you’ll push off into the flowing water and get underway. Swimming breaks, splashy water fights, and relaxing under the sun will take up the rest of the day as you float toward camp. After arriving in camp and setting up your personal items, you are welcome to take a little hike or participate in other group activities as the guides cook up a hearty dinner. After dinner, our talented guides may entertain you with campfire guitar songs or start a rousing game like Capture the Flag. Some guests choose to cozy up inside their tents, but you’re free to sleep under the stars in nice weather.
DAY 2: After a tasty hot breakfast, you’ll push off to enjoy the splashy rapids and magnificent scenery of the Fisher Towers section of the Colorado River. Your guides will prepare a refreshing buffet-style lunch riverside. Winding canyon views and a sandy beach for playing will finish off your adventure, returning to Moab about 4:00 pm.
