What to expect
  • The Colorado River is an integral part of America’s Wild West, as it’s carved a series of canyons and caverns through the heart of the red rock desert. Here in the Westwater Canyon section, outside the city of Moab, explore the river by whitewater raft along with an informative guide, who will relay the area’s history and tales as you splash for miles down the river.  On this adventurous whitewater rafting trip from Moab, there’s the chance you could see petroglyphs carved in the rocks from the area’s original inhabitants, or old mining cabins, graves and caves that date to the old Wild West. As you pass an old-growth Cottonwood tree, look up towards the sky to look for bald eagles and they soar and coast on the breeze, and keep an eye out for otters and beavers as they splash and swim in the eddies.  The tour itself begins in Moab where you’ll meet your professional guide, and receive an intro safety briefing to be fit with lifejacket and gear. From here, hop in the van to the ride to the put-in on a scenic section of river, where your guide will offer additional instruction about riding inside of the raft.  Once you’re ready, push off from the sandy bank and prepare to splash through the canyon. Full-Day Rafting Trip with Lunch:On this full-day rafting tour of Westwater Canyon, you’ll splash through 12 different Class III and IV rapids such as famous 'Sock-It-To-Me.' The rapids are often the highest in early summer with all of the added melted snow. Your guide will be rowing the raft with oars, so you can just hang on for the ride, absorbing the desert scenery as you splash your way down the canyon.  In the middle of the day, your guide will paddle to a sandy riverbank in a calmer section of water, where you’ll enjoy a filling buffet lunch and can take a refreshing dip. From here, continue splashing your way downstream and listening to your echoes in the canyon,, before leaving the Colorado River behind for the comfortable drive back to Moab.

Westwater Canyon rafting trip
Oct 2021 • Couples
There is Yo Yo Ma at Lincoln Center with a cello, Tiger Woods with his putter on the back 9 of Augusta on Sunday, and Chantze with oars on the Colorado River in Westwater Canyon - all masters at their respective crafts. The trip down Westwater Canyon is a can't miss - ask for Chantze and enjoy.

Great trip!
Oct 2021 • Family
We had a GREAT time with Greg and David on our rafting trip. They were really positive and fun guides who made sure everyone had an awesome trip. The wet suits provided were size inclusive. The lunch was healthy and filling. Newbies and experienced rafters were on this trip and it went well. We saw several types of waterfowl, a river otter, and prong horn deer. I would travel with Navtec again!

Amazing Adventure
Sep 2021
This was an AMAZING experience. Katie was fun and navigated our raft through the rapids with skill. When razor rock sliced open the front of our boat, the Navatec crew quickly found a solution to the problem and lashed it together with straps. The canyon was beautiful and the Navtec team was knowledgeable about the different rocks and historical spots in the canyon. I recommend this adventure... be ready to get WET!

Westwater adventure
Sep 2021
Had a great time rafting with the NAVTEC team. Motoring through the calm waters was a great way to save time. On the class 2-4 rapids our guide Katie while small was mighty! Kudos to great guides who even provided an optional lunchtime hike and an excellent gourmet lunch menu. Highly recommend the trip! Hope to comeback and do other outdoor adventures with this team.

Calm and leisurely chill float down the Colorado
Sep 2021
We had a very leisurely two day trip down the west river, Ethan and Chantz were very good guides and knew what they were doing. Chantz is an excellent cook. The rapids were less than I expected, but probably good for the group we were with.

River rafting float down the Colorado.
Aug 2021
The view from the river. This was a half day rafting trip. Great for families. Float down the river. Can get out of the raft and swim or float along with the raft.

Nothing so worthwhile as messing about in boats.
Aug 2021 • Friends
Good times, good people. Chantz was super knowledgeable and erudite, a riverine Renaissance man. The other guides were learning their trade and had a couple hiccups, but no fatalities. I’ll ask for Chantz by name when I want to go to Cataract Canyon.
