As you pass an old-growth Cottonwood tree, look up towards the sky to look for bald eagles and they soar and coast on the breeze, and keep an eye out for otters and beavers as they splash and swim in the eddies. 

The tour itself begins in Moab where you’ll meet your professional guide, and receive an intro safety briefing to be fit with lifejacket and gear. From here, hop in the van to the ride to the put-in on a scenic section of river, where your guide will offer additional instruction about riding inside of the raft.  Once you’re ready, push off from the sandy bank and prepare to splash through the canyon.

From here, continue splashing your way downstream and listening to your echoes in the canyon,, before leaving the Colorado River behind for the comfortable drive back to Moab.
