Overview
The Fisher Towers section of the Colorado River is heavy on scenery, with some fun rapids (depending on the water level/time of year). This is an area where many motion pictures and commercials have been filmed over the years. John Wayne and John Ford filmed a lot of old westerns in this area. Most recently filmed in this area was The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp & Armie Hammer (2013).

    The Fisher Towers section of the Colorado River is heavy on scenery, with some fun rapids (depending on the water level/time of year). This is an area where many motion pictures and commercials have been filmed over the years. John Wayne and John Ford filmed a lot of old westerns in this area. Most recently filmed in this area was The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp & Armie Hammer (2013). For this tour you will need to meet at our office (unless a hotel/campground pick up has been arranged). At 378 North Main St. (right next door to the Comfort Suites). From out office we will transport you up Hwy 128 (Top 10 most scenic highways in America) to Hittle Bottom (about mile 25). This will take 30-45 minutes, depending on traffic and other circumstances. Once at Hittle Bottom, the river guides will take a few minutes (up to 30 minutes) to get the boats and gear off the trailer(s) and ready for the river. When everything is ready your guide(s) will go over some river safety instructions, once everything has been covered you will board the raft. Unless you have requested a paddle boat, your guide will be doing all the rowing, so you get to sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery. As you make your way down the river to Rocky Rapid, and your departure point for the Morning Half Day tour, your guide will provide you with archeology, geology, and river history. Your guide will also point out various land marks and answer any questions you may have on your journey. Once the raft reaches the take out point at Rocky Rapid, you will disembark from the raft, load back up on our shuttle vehicle, and we will bring you back to our office in Moab, concluding your adventure. The drive back from Rocky Rapid could take 30 or more minutes. This is a calm water trip, with small rapids, class 1 & 2. Depending on water levels there is the chance for a class 3 rapid on this section. The rafts are set up where the guide will be doing all the rowing. Paddle boats (where everyone paddles) are an option upon request (24 hour advance notice required).

We loved out float trip and lunch on the Colorado River. The water level was low, it was a gentle and scenic ride. Rose was out guide- we learned about the area and saw an eagle. We combined this trip with the morning jeep trip in Canyonlands- an action packed and

Highly recommend Adrift adventures. I was in town and looking for a rafting experience at a novice level. This was the best choice at only $60 for the half-day rafting. It was super safe and I had the best guide ever (Rose)! I was traveling solo and got to join a group.
