UTAH RIVER TOURS - 5 CATARACT CANYON WHITE WATER RAFTING TOURS

Cataract Canyon is the grand adventure of American whitewater! Cataract Canyon means rapids as intense and exciting as those you’d find in the Grand Canyon. These are John Wesley Cataract Canyon Rafting Powell’s rapids! You’ll travel through red canyons on 100 miles of river, sometimes at a heart thumping pace, sometimes as lazy as the sun moving across the sky.

While these trips are the ultimate in wilderness expeditions, all Cataract Canyon trips are designed with your comfort and pleasure in mind. There is a 4 Day, 3 Day, 2 Day, 1 Day, and 5 Day Catarct Rafting Tour available


We want you to be untroubled and content. We don’t want you struggling with tent poles that collapse into a heap, or sleeping on rocky terrain that plagues your back the next day. You’ll enjoy self-erecting tents and sleep on cushy mattresses while snuggled in name-brand sleeping bags. (Tents, sleeping bags, and wetsuits are not included in the tour price) On our expeditions, you won’t be eating off a driftwood log or sitting in the sand. On all J-rig trips, we bring along tables and chairs to make your wilderness dining experience as enchanting as that of your favorite restaurant, only the Colorado River flows by! On the slower, flat water stretches of the river; you won’t bake in the desert sun unless you want to. Shade canopies are placed over J-rig rafts to protect you from the sun’s harmful rays. It’s this extra measure of care that sets us apart from competitors.

Got 48 hours? Get Cataract Canyon! High-tech rafts make it possible

Our busy schedules make even the best of us "weekend warriors." There is no reason to sacrifice big adventure and backcountry travel because you have to squeeze a lot of living into a short period of time. The Cataract Canyon Blast is built for people with fast-paced lives who need a little time away from it all. You’ll be gone for only two days, but we promise it will feel like two weeks! You’ll enjoy the same 100 miles of the Colorado River including all 25 named class III-V rapids. A specially designed raft makes it all possible. New technology allows this powerful raft to cover flat water with the speed of a motorboat (about 20 miles per hour) but run the rapids with the security of a raft. With this versatility, we can stop to visit many of the interesting sites we see on longer trips. When we reach Lake Powell after the last of the rapids, we cross the lake in just a couple of hours as the high-tech raft commands the water. This unique trip isn’t for everybody, but you’ll know if it has your name on it. An ultimate weekend getaway, this trip is limited to only 10 people per departure, so pick a few good friends and hit the whitewater. It’s a blast!

CATARACAT CANYON Row Raft Expedition - 5 Days
River Rafting
INFO
If you’re committed to experiencing Cataract Canyon as John Wesley Powell did, this special row-raft edition of our favorite trip may be the one for you.

Stretch out your time in the back country by selecting Powell’s Cataract Canyon. This is a river trip taken in the style of John Wesley Powell, in a small row-raft that puts you at eye-level with the water. Smaller, lighter rafts make the rapids seem bigger and wilder and you roll over them instead of blasting through them. Five days and 4 nights on the river allow you to really immerse yourself in the back country and in the unforgettable beauty that is Canyonlands National Park and southeastern Utah. Hikes in side canyons and stops along the way to visit 1000 year-old Anasazi Indian ruins enrich your journey. Your experienced guide makes this a richly informative and educational experience as well as he shares with you the back country ethics, cultural history and natural history of the area. You’ll travel 100 miles of the Colorado River, hit 25 named rapids, and feel like a new person after you complete this leisurely getaway! This special row-raft trip is limited to only 10 guests, so you enjoy an intimate retreat in one of America’s most famous canyons.

OUR RAFTING BOATS - The J-Rig Raft J-Rig Raft– Our Celebrated Cataract Boat is a very secure raft, yet offers an action-packed ride through Cataract Canyon. Even at lower water levels, the J-rig raft gives a big, splashy ride because of the way it impacts the water. The 22-foot J-rig is powered with a small motor that allows us to cover 100 miles of river and still have time for camping and walks to points of interest along the way.

The size of the J-rig raft allows for a comfortable ride in a variety of locations on the craft. If you want to go for the gusto, you might choose to ride on the snout of the tube. For a more secure feeling ride, select a spot in the center. All of our equipment is also stored on the boat. There is room for a full field kitchen, ice chests, tables and chairs for dining, tents, and your personal belongings. A shade awning over part of the raft affords welcome relief from the sun while on the calm water sections of the river.
