Westwater Canyon River Rafting

Colorado River Rafting, Westwater Canyon – About This Trip

Colorado River rafting doesn’t get much better than this! Our Westwater Canyon whitewater rafting trip takes us down a segment of the Colorado River that is magnificent and is often referred to as a miniature Grand Canyon. The beauty and grandeur of this section of the Colorado River offers memorable sights such as pristine beaches, charming side canyons, and beautiful campsites. Westwater Canyon is a great rafting trip for those who want the beauty and thrills of a traditional Colorado River rafting vacation, and yet only have a few days available for their river rafting tour. Westwater: the ultimate two or three-day getaway.


  • Great introduction to river rafting trips
  • Excellent choice if you are short on time
  • Exciting class III & IV whitewater rapids
  • Stunning wilderness canyon with unique rock formations

The Colorado River Rafting in Westwater Canyon cuts its teeth through black-rock canyons in Southern Utah, due North East of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.  On a three day you start in rural Colorado at the Loma boat ramp; while on a two day you start across the border in Utah from a remote ranger station. Both lead you to a take-out near the wild-west ghost town of Cisco.

This was a most memorable experience and I've been all around the world. We were prepared before hand and then able to experience the beauty, peace and adventure of the trip.

Too many good things about Karen and her office team who helped with reservations. We loved our guides. It was a wonderful trip and couldn’t have been better
