from Colorado River Full-Day Rafting Adventure with Exclusive BBQ Lunch
Your journey begins with a drive up one of the most scenic highways in the West. You’ll launch your raft onto a spectacular stretch of the Colorado River, made famous by dozens of movies shot along this stretch of the river. You’ll experience mild rapids such as Onion Creek, Cloudburst, Rocky Rapid, and Whites Rapid. On long, calm stretches between rapids, you’ll have plenty of time to cool down and float with your life jacket in the river.

At lunch time, we'll stop at a beautiful riverside ranch where you can kick up your feet in the shade and savor a hot BBQ lunch. This BBQ lunch buffet is exclusive to Moab Adventure Center and includes your choice of freshly-grilled burgers, chicken, hot dogs or veggie patties. Side salads, giant cookies, lemonade, and iced tea are also included.

There is always a way to make the most of every situation, rain or shine, intense or mild river levels… Moab Adventure Center's got you! No other guides work quite as hard to make sure your trip is everything you expect and more. They love their jobs and it shows in everything they do.
