The Sights of Cataract Canyon

Cataract Canyon by OarboatThe Sights of Cataract Canyon through Canyonlands National Park is a journey into a spectacular, remote wilderness. This high quality adventure is the ideal balance of serenity, relaxation, and exhilaration. From the beginning of the trip, you will find yourself seduced by the pace of the river while absorbing beautiful scenery and enjoying the camaraderie of interesting people.

The oarboat is the traditional raft on the Colorado River. This type of raft places you 'up close and personal' with the river and its natural power. It's a pure wilderness river trip combining all the comforts needed to enjoy the outdoors. Only the quiet dipping of the oars in the water breaks the quiet of the smooth water sections.

The longer trips allow for more hiking time. The Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park has some of the most outstanding hikes in all of Utah.

The trips in May and June in Cataract Canyon have some of the biggest and most challenging whitewater in the United States. This is a thrill seeker's dream, with stunningly powerful rapids. For those seeking "moderate" excitement, late summer trips feature rapids that have fun rolling waves.
