Ready for a New Year

by Kristl 9. November 2020 08:56
Greetings from Moab!

We had a great rafting season this year!  We had some really amazing rafting trips this summer, and we were able to keep our guests and staff healthy and safe. 

We look forward to the 2021 rafting season with excitement!  2021 will be our 50th year of offering outstanding outdoor adventures on the Colorado, Green and Yampa Rivers. We are also celebrating the 150th anniversary of Major John Wesley Powell's second expedtion on the Green and Colorado Rivers.  We're planning an EPIC adventure! 22 Days/21 Nights of rafting on through the Gates of Lodore, Desolation Canyon, Labyrinth Canyon, Stillwater Canyon and Cataract Canyon.  Fore more information about how to sign up for the full trip or one or more sections of the trip, call Kristl at 800-332-2439 or email her at info@griffithexp.com.

We look forward with hope for a healthy and adventurous 2021 rafting season!  We hope that you will join us!

Summer of 2020

by Kristl 24. July 2020 08:48
What a whirlwhind of a summer!  We opened for operation on June 1st this year, and we've been running strong!  Our guides are staying healthy, and our guests have been awesome about our new procedures for keeping everyone safe.

We have decided to not offer any more 1 day rafting trips this year.  We feel that there are too many "Touch-Points" associated with 1 day trips, and it is difficult to mitigate COVID exposure due to that.  There are some great companies in Moab who are still running 1 day trips, and we are happy to refer you to them if you need.

We still have some great Multi-Day rafting trips available!  We are still running Cataract Canyon, Desolation Canyon, Westwater Canyon and even the Gates of Lodore this fall.  We would love to have you join us!  We are keeping the groups smaller, but the trips are still amazing!  Call for more information!

Guarded Enthusiasm

by Kristl 11. May 2020 13:07
OH! I'm *ALMOST* jumping for joy!  We just heard from the National Parks in our area that things will be opening up soon!  Canyonlands and Arches National Parks will begin LIMITED operations on May 29th.  Dinosaur National Monument is beginning limited operations by the middle of this week.

NOW...this does not guarantee that we will be in operation on those dates, but it is a step in the right direction.  

Hurry up...and wait...

We're cautiously optimistic that things will be running again soon.  We are working on our COVID19 Mitigation Plan so that we can be ready to start operations as soon as safely possible.

I'm saving my happy dance for the day we get the final go-ahead, but my toes are tappin'. 

Happy Monday Everyone!

Our phones are working again!!  We can now be reached via phone at both our 800 number (800-332-2439) and our local line (435-259-8229).

We are currently working on putting together a plan for rafting trips this summer.  We are working with the managing agencies to make sure that we offer opportuniites for excellent outdoor experiences that still comply with CDC requirements and recommendations that mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Stay tuned for more information coming soon!

COVID19 and SGRE

by Kristl 12. March 2020 13:52

SGRE Response to COVID-19

As a past, present, or prospective guest with Sheri Griffith River Expeditions (SGRE), you’re a part of our family and you should know we take the health and safety of our guests and our staff very seriously.

Recently, due to the uncertain nature of the spread of the coronavirus resulting in an increasing number of COVID-19 cases, many travelers are understandably concerned. As you know, this is a rapidly evolving situation and our response may well change as we learn more. For now, we STRONGLY advise all travelers to purchase a travel protection plan that will cover you in the event you or a family member become ill and cannot travel. 

If you have traveled, or will travel within an area that has been identified by the CDC as high-risk areas, please consult your physician about whether you should participate in an outdoor adventure activity.

If a guide or guest develops flu-like symptoms during an SGRE trip, per CDC guidelines, we will socially distance the individual(s) from the rest of the group and any community items, disinfect any suspected items or areas of contamination, encourage them to wear a surgical mask (to help prevent the spread of their illness), and consult local agencies about the possibility of an evacuation.

Our team is monitoring the following resources to help inform our decision making at this time:

We recommend checking with your own state’s recommendations and policies regarding the COVID19 response.

We hope you’ll rest assured that our standard procedures have long featured vigilant adherence to best practices for sanitation, disinfection of communal surfaces, and availability of hand washing stations. In addition to convenient locations for two to three hand-wash stations at every camp, along with a heavy emphasis on their required use, we also bring a supply of hand sanitizer on every trip. Our certified food managers and handlers adhere to strict guidelines for food preparation and clean up. Vehicles are cleaned between each use, and our rental gear (sleeping bags/pads and tents) is laundered between trips. Take confidence in knowing our operations teams are working extra hard to ensure we meet or exceed CDC guidelines.

As always, the safety of our guests and our staff is our primary concern. Please take necessary precautions to protect yourself when traveling and if you meet any of the criteria for potential risk of carrying COVID-19, please contact us immediately. If you are 60 or older, or if you have a chronic medical condition such as heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes, please consult your physician for recommendations about joining our outdoor adventures. To provide for some additional flexibility during these uncertain times, we may be able to allow you, under certain criteria, to transfer your trip payments to a future departure. 

All things considered, we’re still looking forward to our 2020 season. We believe being out on the river or in the backcountry away from the crowds represents a welcome refuge from the hectic nature of our day-to-day lives, and our team of professional guides and staff look forward to helping you have an amazing outdoor experience.  It’s what we live for and it’s also our livelihood.

Thank you,
Sheri Griffith Expeditions Staff
