We had a lovely and competent captain and guide filled with interesting facts and humorous stories. As we were there in August, and we took the beginners trip, the ride was relaxing and meandering with some moderate whitewater. Fun!
My husband and boys had a great time on this trip. Loved their guide.
The trip was great. The guides Cheyenne and Jonah were excellent. Our family of four would highly recommend the trip. We did the half day trip with lunch. Remember to take your own water bottle/container.
Fun trip with a fabulous lunch provided and an excellent tour guide.
Tory was the best river guide we ever had. Yes it was early season, so the rapids were non existent, but Tory made it a great trip regardless. Go with NavTec any chance you get in Moab....they are incredible!
very friendly guides. I would have preferred more rapids. I don't know if when looking at trips if the scale of rapids 1-5 was in the description. We did not receive info on what to wear and bring, while others had.
Water was high, but that was not overly detrimental. Fast flow, and some big waves gave us several welcome soakings!
The rapids were not to scary - which was fine with us. Aubrey was our guide and she kept things very entertaining.
We had a very nice float trip with a very good guide. The only reason for four stars was that the river was pretty mild compared to others we have been on. They tell us that the time of year is critical to get good white water. I would highly recommend the service provider for the trip. It was also one of the most affordable we found in the area. There were other companies putting in and taking out at the exact same place on the river, but they were much higher on their rates.
loved the rafting but too much time taken up prepping lunch i.e. slicing oranges, rolling up turkey etc. This should've been done b4 trip. Standing in the hot sun waiting was not fun or cost effective for me.
1st time ever guides shared nothing about area/history. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
This trip was a complete and total disappointment. In fact, we couldn't wait for the trip to end so we could go explore Moab on our own. The highlight was the other family who we sat next to who were also trying desperately to find some way to make the boring 3 hour float into something less than yawn-invoking! The scenery was very pretty but nothing you couldn't get driving anywhere else in Moab.
The Class II and III rapids were barely more than ripples in the water and occurred no more than five times during the three hour float. The rest of the time, the water was as smooth as glass and we barely creeped down it. This was probably the biggest disappointment as we thought we'd for sure be getting splashed and hanging on so we didn't fall out! I get that the river was low in the fall of the year, but that should have been noted on the description or in part of the booking so the trip wasn't misrepresented as it was with:
Hold on and have fun when the raft gets bouncy during Class II and III rapids.
And finally, our guide may as well been a mute robot. Despite the overview on the website saying: Learn from the expert guide about the ecology, history and wildlife around Fisher Towers and the Colorado River, our guide only spoke when spoken to and only talked if asked a direct question. And by talk i mean one word answer. If the guide was fun and talkative and smiled and laughed and told jokes even a little, that would have surely made this dull ride a tiny bit more exciting.
I absolutely DO NOT RECOMMEND this trip, unless you are looking to just sit quietly on a river for three hours and do nothing but stare and pretty scenery.
