Outstanding guide at Paddle Moab!! Can not say enough good things about the quality of our trip, our guide knowledge and unique information provided along the way from geological to local legends to history lessons along the river. All while having a blast on the river with big thrills but all while feeling safe and steered away from any real danger.

David was awesome! He was friendly and very knowledgeable. The freshly made chicken Cesar wraps were delicious! The river trip took about 3.5 hours. We encountered 1 and 2 level rapids--perfect on a 55° day.

This travel guide service was one of only two services permitted to take us to places other guide services could not go. The views were extraordinary.

Great Ride!! Enjoyed Travis and his extensive knowledge of the area! Great peaceful day and nutritious lunch!
