Overall, the trip was great. 2021 is a low-water year, so the river isn't quite as exciting as usual. And, unfortunately, the day we went had serious headwinds which had us paddling much of the trip. The scenery was amazing and the staff were knowledgable and friendly. The trip was not as fun as our other rafting experiences, but that was no fault of the company or staff - purely mother nature.

A fun, wild class 1 - 2 trip down the Colorado
Jun 2021 • Couples
Initially was a little disappointed the trip was class 1-2 but that disappointment was very short lived. Jake (from State Farm), our captain/guide was masterful in steering us into the rapids, definitely making them feel more like a class 2. All in all it was a fun fun time... Highly recommended doing it.

A super fun family friendly outing. The guides were all fun and friendly. They have a camaraderie and playfulness with each other that made the day more fun. The 45 minute bus ride to the put-in went quickly with facts by the tour guide.

Amazing tour!!
We had such a blast with the red river crew! We were only in town for a short time and we’re having a hard time deciding between activités. We are so happy with our choice of the river rafting. The crew were on time and had everyone on the bus and in the water super quick! The guides were very entertaining and knowledgeable and gave us some great food and hiking recommendations! We will definitely be back and can’t wait to try other activities through red river!

Colorado Rafting 1/2 day
This was a lot of fun. Nice change of pace from hiking and a great way to spend a hot afternoon. The river was calm with 3 sections of rapids where you get a little wet. Very fun!

A Fantastic Day on the River
Mar 2021 • Couples
Would highly highly recommend this trip. Our guide Brian was personable and knowledgeable and made the trip down the river memorable. We learned a lot about the history of the area and saw awe-inspiring mesas, towers, and buttes straight out of a western film set. Wildlife was plentiful and the rapids were challenging, but not too difficult to navigate.

We were nervous about the weather since we’d camped the night before in ~30 degree temps, but Red River Adventures gave us all a dry jacket and pants since it was a chilly morning, so it ended up being really comfortable.

I’d do another trip through this company again in a heartbeat, and am glad they helped make our experience in Moab so memorable!

I'm often asked, "what set you apart from the other rating companies"? and "don't you all run the same section of river"? While it's true that we do, there are still huge differences. The quality of our guides and the extra information they offer on our trips is a huge part of creating a great day! Loads of information on everything including history, geology, plants, animals, movies shot in the area, the river, rafting, water in the west all add to the experience and make your time with us so much more than a rafting, climbing, canyoneering, or skiing trip. Glad you liked the splash gear! We want our guests to be comfortable on early season trips so that they are as enjoyable as possible! Thanks for coming and the time it took to share your experience. We really do appreciate it! Carl

Guides made the experience
Jul 2020
We debated between rafting in Moab or the Rockies. We chose Moab in part because of the heat: swimming parts of the trip was refreshing and part of the highlight. The rapids themselves at this point in the summer were nothing much to speak of, and if it is real adventure you are looking for, you might be disappointed. However, our guide and the guide of the family we traveled with absolutely made the experience (thanks Kate and Eric). Not only were they informative and humorous, they provided an insight into the life in and around Moab, particularly of the subculture of raft guides. The half day is short, but at this time of year was probably enough.

Excellent time despite unforeseen issues
Aug 2020 • Family
I never write reviews but felt the need to write a positive review for our experience doing a half day rafting trip from Moab. The staff were excellent- I usually feel intimidated doing sporty outdoor tour activities but the entire staff made everyone feel at ease and excited to get on the water. The rafting was class I/II so not very challenging and river itself was low but the staff made it fun at all times with corny jokes on the bus ride to the drop site to other things during rafting itself when there were slower points.

At the end of the trip there was some issue with the bus along with another problem in town with power that led to a gridlock and about 45 minute delay of our return to Moab. Not the best situation but it was hot and we just stayed in the river swimming. The staff were great in keeping us entertained during the delay and the unbelieveable part was how the owner of the company took ownership for the delay and refunded the full amount. Things happen and buses can break with any company. I dont think many if any other tour companies would handle it the way red river did.

A great day full of fun, beautiful sights, and laughter.
Aug 2020
We went our for the half day tour down the Colorado River. James was our tour guide, and he was absolutely fantastic. He was funny, informative, and affable. He showed us an amazing and fun time. The sights on this tour were absolutely stunning. The river was relaxing, and then when we hit the rapids it was very fun. James did a great job of getting us to work as a team in order to get through the rapids and down the river as easily as possible. We also played fun raft games in the still water. We can not recommend this trip enough, and hopefully you are lucky enough to get James as a guide, although every guide seemed to be fun, professional, and while they took their job seriously they are out there to show the guest a very fun time. We highly recommend this company, as you will have an amazing time.
