“The Year of the Family Rafting Trip “

 Cataract Canyon on the Colorado River

Sheri Griffith River Expeditions is a company focused on family togetherness. Sheri started running the river with her family in the 1970s, and in 1981 opened a whitewater rafting company in Moab that was focused on safety, high quality and family fun. In 2005, Jose and Arlo Tejada took over the operation of the business, carrying on the same goals and values that Sheri and her family established. Over the past 5 years, family has become even more important as Arlo has battled cancer, and our extended family has come together to support him. This year, we welcome Jose’s daughter, Emma, as she returns to Moab and the Sheri Griffith River Expeditions family.

“I am confident that nobody…will accuse me of selfishness if I ask to spend time, while I am still in good health, with my family, my friends and also with myself.”—Nelson Mandela

In recognition of the importance of families of all kinds, we at Sheri Griffith River Expeditions want YOU to have the best Family Vacation Possible in 2014.


What makes a Sheri Griffith Rafting Expeditions family rafting vacation the best?

We have families of our own, and we understand how difficult it can be to plan and pull-off the perfect vacation. Whether you are like Kristl, with multi-generational family get-togethers, like Brenda, with a significant other, adult siblings and nieces and nephews, like Arlo, with a close-knit and strong group of friends, or like Jose, who likes to spend time away from it all exploring with his wife, we understand that the term “Family” can apply to many different groups.

We are so sure that you will LOVE your vacation with Sheri Griffith River Expeditions that we will GUARANTEE IT! If you don’t have a great time with your family while on one of our vacations, we will refund the price of your rafting trip.


We have spent many years working out all the “kinks” associated with river vacations. Once you are on the river with us, we handle all of the day-to-day concerns so that you can relax and enjoy the time with your family. No cell phone or television interruptions, no soccer games or ballet practice, no running to the store, no meetings, no distractions. Just time to play, explore and develop stronger family bonds.
