Cataract Canyon Express 2 Day Adventure Day 1
Cataract Canyon

After a short morning drive from Moab, Utah you'll launch your raft onto a calm section of the Colorado River. Within minutes, unmatched geologic wonders will tower all around you providing a complete and welcome escape from the world you left behind. You'll encounter Native American ruins and writings and hike to awe-inspiring vistas atop plateaus. Around mid-day, you'll savor a scrumptious buffet lunch at the river's edge. As the canyon deepens to over 2,000 feet, you'll experience the exhilaration of nearly 30 whitewater rapids including Capsize, the Big Drops, the Mile Longs, Little Niagara, Satan's Gut and Repeat. After a full day of unforgettable memories, you'll find the perfect riverside respite as we camp along the Colorado River. Enjoy a delicious sunset dinner, perhaps relax beside a crackling campfire, and star gaze as you're lulled to sleep by the rhythmic sounds of the river.

Day 2
Cataract Canyon

As you awake to the smell of freshly prepared breakfast, you'll lie in your comfortable cot and marvel as the morning sun paints its warmth across the surrounding canyon walls. After breakfast, you'll set off for one more day of Colorado River rafting. Depending on your camp location, you may experience more thrilling whitewater and you'll definitely have some final time to relax as you float amidst the shadows of striking red rock spires. After reaching Lake Powell, you'll return to Moab via ground shuttle. You may choose to have a Moab area shuttle company shuttle your car to the ending point of your trip where you may continue elsewhere or return to Moab on your own (3.5 hr drive).
