OarboatThese are inflatable rafts (approx. 17 – 18 feet in length) the guides maneuver them with a set of oars secured to a frame in the middle of the raft. This is considered to be a more stable craft than a paddleboat.

Motorized Jrigs

Jrig on Colorado River

These inflatable rafts (23 feet in length) are motorized and move faster down river. The guide operates the motor from the rear of the raft. They are much larger than the other rafts and are considered to be the most stable. These rafts are used on the Cataract Canyon 2, 3 and 4 day trips only.
