Youth Group Rafting – Fisher Towers Canyon
Colorado River Rafting at Fisher Towers—
About This Trip
Youth groups rafting alongside the Fisher Towers are treated to towering, red, sandstone monoliths set against the La Sal Mountains. Float on the iconic Colorado River through a classic red rock desert landscape that has been frequently used as the backdrop for Hollywood movie productions. Fun class I & II rapids make it the perfect section for youth groups to play in paddle boats and inflatable kayaks. Observe bald eagle, great blue heron, and snowy egret habitats. Just minutes outside of Moab, Utah!

The Colorado River exits Westwater Canyon near the almost–ghost town of Cisco, Utah, and meanders through open wilderness and farm land to the confluence with the Dolores River. Float under the remains of the historic Dewey Bridge and then to Hittle Bottom. Oar rafts will take you through Professor Valley, past the Fisher Towers and La Sal Mountains, and end at Take Out Beach, ten miles north of Highway 191 and Moab.
The itinerary of any river trip is always planned with maximum flexibility. Each trip will vary depending on weather, water flows, your group's interests, and the need to be courteous to other rafters. This is a sample itinerary for a two-day Fisher Towers trip on the Colorado River.
Day 1: Start at our headquarters at 8:00 a.m. Mountain Time in Green River, Utah. Make your last minute purchases (view our packing checklist to see items you can find at our store), then buckle up for a 90-minute van ride to the put-in at Dewey Bridge. Float leisurely through calm water. Look for bald eagles, beavers, great blue herons, and night herons. Camp within sight of the 12,000-foot Sierra La Sal and Fisher Tower formations; the openness of the river corridor makes for a stunning, expansive view of both sunset and sunrise.
Day 2: We'll approach class I and II rapids: great fun for inflatable kayaks. Pass beneath Castle Rock and the Priest-and-Nuns formation before lunch near White's Rapid. Passenger vans meet us at the take out and provide 60 minute transportation back to Green River. Our expected time of arrival back at our headquarters is 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
