Westwater Canyon by Moab Adventure Center

Don't miss the opportunity to experience "The West's Best Short Whitewater Trip" according to National Geographic magazine! With class III and IV rapids participants will surely get a thrill ride on the Colorado River. Westwater Canyon is a spirited oar-powered and paddleboat trip* on the Colorado River. Guides expertly row through exciting waves and swirling pools dwarfed by stunningly beautiful and unique black, gold and red canyon walls. Hikes to historic cabins, mysterious caves, and Indian petroglyphs punctuate the river's course. Rapids such as Funnel Falls, Skull Rapid and Sock-it-to-Me provide plenty of excitement while calmer waters on the last part of the river offer a relaxing end to the perfect day trip.
