River day trip from Moab

We will be in Moab on Oct 1 and want to do a day river trip. Are there likely to be rapids on the Fisher Towers half-day raft trip at this time of year? If not, do you have feedback about the Sunset jet boat trip? Thank you.

Fisher Towers is likely a float trip. Ive done this in August and its a float trip with little in the way of rapids.

Westwater canyon is the area to raft

As for Ocotber I do not know if they are done for the year.

Definitely very late in the season. But as DanP noted, I would inquire about Westwater. It's a bit of a ways from Moab but definitely lots more action. Just not sure what's running that late in the season.

We were through Moab twice in last three weeks and rapids were pretty decent along the Fisher Tower to town route, but still nothing like Westwater. Suspect your late date, though, won't find as much there.

Have fun.

We did Westwater in early October 2012. It was awesome, but nearing the end of their season. Contact them directly and inquire about your date. I expect Oct 1st should be fine.
