What people are saying about Utah

This paddle boarding adventure was loads of fun. Awesome views going through the beautiful Colorado River with the steep cliff faces to your left and right. Parts of the rapids made it challenging to say up rite on your board but that’s part of the fun. Other parts of the river were calm and relaxing just floating along. Teal was my tour guide. She was very friendly and made sure we knew the proper techniques and safety measures. She was also a wealth of knowledge about Moab in general. Would definitely recommend this tour to able bodied adventure goers.

Our family of 11 really enjoyed this white-water rafting experience. The rapids were pretty calm so more of a float than actual rafting, but the scenery was amazing, and our guides Lily and Luke did an excellent job of explaining the history of the area to our family.

Amazing experience. Kids and I had a wonderful time. Lilly our raft guide put on a great show. Could not ask for more. We will be back.

Peaceful paddling. A beautiful way to be among God's greatness.

Such a great experience!! Loved every second of it!!
