The famous red rock country of Canyonlands National Park harbors some of the most unique and beautiful landscapes in the American Southwest. There is no better way to see and experience the heart of this colorful and remote area than by rafting down the Colorado River from Moab, Utah, to Lake Powell. The trip begins in Moab and concludes about 100 miles down river at Hite Marina. Off-river hiking excursions will take us to ancient Indian ruins, cascading streams and waterfalls, and unique geological features and formations. We will also run an exciting stretch of whitewater rapids, including the famous “Big Drops." The river trip concludes with a scenic flight back to the Canyonlands Airport near Moab.

About the Raft

About the raft used for the Cataract Canyon 4 Day Motorized Rafting Trip

During the high water in spring and early summer, we use 22-foot and/or 35-foot motorized rafts, which are appropriate for Cataract Canyon’s rapids.
The 22-foot sporty “snout rigs” carry 6-8 people each. The 35-foot “S- rigs” accommodate 12-14 people.

Camping and Dining on the 4 Day Motorized Rafting Trip

Our meals consist of a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy products. They are nutritious and delicious. Although we do not serve a “vegetarian” menu, we do provide enough fresh produce and non-meat items that most vegetarian dieters get along fine for the week they are on the river.

We are willing to try and help with special diet requests, but if your food options are very restrictive or require extra time or preparations we may not be able to accommodate you. Please give us a call to discuss your particular diet needs. We may suggest that you bring some of your own food items to supplement our menu.

Grand Canyon Rafting Trip Review

Our group rafted the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. It was such a positive experience from reservation to the take-out. Our rafting adventure was so well-coordinated and we felt confident in our delightful crew from the first rapid to the last. Delicious meals, great conversations, challenging hikes, and yummy desserts. The crew checked in with us regularly to make sure we were comfortable and were accommodating for various levels of abilities. We even had poetry read to us each morning before we started our day.Would I go again? Absolutely! Would there be a few things I would do differently? Absolutely! Less personal items (you won't be shampooing as often as you think), less clothing, and a few more layering pieces. Overall, this was truly a trip of a lifetime.

I would just like to let you know how much we enjoyed our rafting trip! It was such a spectacular, once in a lifetime trip. Your staff should be commended. Their knowledge of the river and compassion is exceptional. They made this the most amazing trip that we have ever taken. I cannot possibly thank you entire crew enough.

I knew you were an original family run company and I think it showed. It was also part of the reason I chose your group when I started doing the research, as you were always so quick and helpful with your email replies. I figured it was likely to carry through to other parts of your company and it clearly does!

First to let you know that we had an exceptional trip through Desolation Canyon with Sybrena and her crew. Our guides made everyone so comfortable. From my wife sleeping under the stars, to daughter and grandkids challenging the rapids in the duckies. Could not have asked for more. Once again you (CRATE) exceeding my expectations.

You are all terrific professionals and CRATE is a first-class operations. After 3 Grand Canyon, 1 Cataract, and 1 Desolation trip with CRATE over the years, you’re clearly my go-to outfitter, and I will continue to talk CRATE and the western rivers and canyons up with all my friends in the northeast.
