What people are saying about Colorado River, Utah

This paddle boarding adventure was loads of fun. Awesome views going through the beautiful Colorado River with the steep cliff faces to your left and right. Parts of the rapids made it challenging to say up rite on your board but that’s part of the fun. Other parts of the river were calm and relaxing just floating along. Teal was my tour guide. She was very friendly and made sure we knew the proper techniques and safety measures. She was also a wealth of knowledge about Moab in general. Would definitely recommend this tour to able bodied adventure goers.

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.

The guide Travis was excellent, had a lot of fun. The rapids weren’t anything more than class II at best but still great scenery and being on the river was relaxing.

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