Owner description: No longer simply a rafting company, Red River Adventures is a leader in Moab multi-sport vacations! Don't be fooled by others offering "one stop" shopping only to be shuffled among the true providers once you arrive. We are the only guide service in town that holds permits to guide river, canyoneering, rock climbing, SUP and National Parks trips in house. On land or water our guides can do almost everything. For those trips we can't run ourselves, we've teamed up with some of Moab's best and will let you know, in advance, who will be guiding you. For one day or more we've got something for everyone!

My husband and son (8yrs) talked myself and my daughter (25yrs) into a full day rafting trip down the Colorado River, whilst we were staying in Moab, Utah in June. They wanted the overnight experience but we compromised on the day trip. The scenery is spectacular, the river beautiful and the company, Red River Adventures, experienced, fun and knowledgable. My daughter and I were very anxious. The compulsory safety talk did not help! However, the guides were in total control all the way. The lunch, although not hot, was fresh and delicious (wraps - cold meat, avocado, salad and dressings). A hot drink might have been nice as the weather was a little cool and you do get very wet. The sun came out and warmed us up a bit. RRA recommended bringing a warm top to change into and if the weather even looks a little cool, I would do this, as it is all put into a dry sack and my son really appreciated the warm, dry jacket when we stopped for lunch. The experience is one of calm and serene travel down the river punctuated with terror (ok, maybe not terror) but exhilaration as you try and paddle out of the rapids. The photos of us are priceless! The looks on the kids faces as a wave forms to crash over the front of the raft are hilarious.

Took the full-day rafting trip with my husband and 2 college-age kids. We had a great time and our guide was very knowledgeable, experienced and competent. Every staff member at Red River was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend going with Red River!

We took the all day ride which I recommend , if not half day morning. Better rapids on the first part of the trip. The whole day includes lunch. Our guide Lars was very informative, he loves the water & the rocks. You do get wet, so where clothes you can get wet in. There are spots they let you jump in & float but it is hard to get back in the boat. Make sure your life vest is tight because this is how they pull you in.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Lots of history, great commentary and we had the beauty of a full moon to accompany us. We had taken this trip about 20 years ago and we were as delighted with the trip then as now.

We did the jet boat ride from Moab to Dead Horse Point on the Colorado River. Great trip with super views. Sights you would never see from up top on the rims. Be sure and take some kind of a camera to capture the moments.
