Tag-A-Long Expeditions Colorado River Rafting for families in Moab, Utah

Day trip rapids

Near MOAB, enjoy a day or half-day river trip. A stretch of the Colorado River wanders through some of the most spectacular landscape (Fisher Towers State Park, Professor Valley and Scenic Byway 128) in America. The canyon borders on Arches National Park and the rapids are splashy and fun. This little stretch of river is poetry, Dr. Seuss style!

Rather come-as-you-are? Have a dry river tour and an ingenious Canyonlands experience – choose a jet boat cruise upon the Colorado River. On the other end of the river spectrum is whitewater to be found in Westwater or Cataract Canyons.

River Day Trips—Moab—Colorado River

Day River Trips

Cataract One Day (CA0)
Here is a one day trip that Rules 100 miles MOAB to Lake Powell. Wetsuits are required in May & June.

Westwater Full-Day (WA0)
Is your time squeezed so tight you can only afford one day on the river? Don't worry! Westwater Canyon is maximum whitewater experience in minimum time. Wetsuits are required in May and June.

Colorado River Scenic Splash (DR0)
This is fun without fear and the BEST whitewater trip for people wanting moderate rapids without breaking the family budget! When Walt Disney came to photograph whitewater rafting, they asked Tag-A-Long to guide them through this very section of the Colorado River!

Pirates of the Colorado – Family Rafting Adventure (PIRATES)
River rafting is fun. River rafting with eye patches and buried treasure is EPIC! Little kids need only weigh 40 pounds. Add an inflatable kayak to paddle yourself.

Jump & Raft (SR0)
What could be better than a tandem jump out of an airplane and then rafting the Colorado River? For this major adrenaline packed, one–of–a–kind, adventure in Moab, book this package!

Canyonlands Wilderness Cruise and Raft the Colorado River (HJ0 and HR0)
Enjoy the motorized "come-as-you-are" boat trip downstream of Moab toward Canyonlands and the Colorado River rafting upstream of Moab through Professor Valley for the Scenic Splash.

1/2 Day Colorado River Scenic Splash (HR0)
Half of the length of the day trip, half of the rapids, but all of the fun a raft trip can prevail. It is the Colorado River and so accessible! (Combine this trip with a Half-day 4x4 in Canyonlands or Arches National Park or jetboat cruise in Canyonlands.)

Canyonlands Wilderness Cruise (HJO)
Explore the real canyonlands on the calm waters of the Colorado River. The only way you'll see the places we take you is by boat! Leave car-bound tourists behind on our relaxing, calm-water excursions down the river. A journey in our large, stable jetboat will satisfy the hidden explorer in you!

Day Canoe, Including Shuttle (DC0)
Contact us to discuss trip details.
Paddle 15 miles on your own on the calm water of the Colorado River downstream of Moab. Bring your own lunch and water. Tag-A-Long supplies the canoe, lifejackets, paddles and shuttle.
