Great trip through Cataract Canyon

We just came back from going down Cataract Canyon with CRATE in the first week of May 2021. The trip was fantastic and CRATE was excellent in all areas: professional, SAFE, fun, knowledgeable, experienced and efficient. The food was fresh and excellent everyday, including salads at dinner. Our guides were an amazing group of individuals


A+++ rafting and hiking adventure

Cataract Canyon trip, June 20-23

I took my 2 sons-in-law on this trip and was impressed with our experiences with CRATE. From booking the trip in mid December with Vicky to our guides, Ben, Casey and Carter. The food was great , the guides were very helpful and taught us many unknown facts about the canyon. It was an enjoyable


Cataract Canyon raft trip June 14-18

Such a great experience for everyone in our group. The rafts were very comfortable and the food was over the top with accommodation for all food preferences. The hikes were fabulous and we all learned so much about the history and geology of the canyon. While the white water wasn’t as big as what we

Cataract Canyon White water rafting

It doesn’t get ANY better than a trip with Crate. I think this is my 7th trip and each one has been so wonderful. Crate is one of the only companies I know that doesn’t do a “cookie cutter” trip. The guides are so knowledgeable and have so much experience that each day was a

Amazing Adventure!

I had the time of my life with CRATE and their incredible team of professionals! We had amazing campsites, hikes, rafting and river experiences! This was my first river trip and will not be my last! I don’t know how they managed to cook such outstanding meals, guide us on hikes and in the river,


This is a Fantastic Outfitter

I just completed a 5 day trip with CRATE through Cataract Canyon. We started in Moab, UT and finished in Hite, UT. The trip was fantastic! It consisted of a leisurely float trip of 4 days mixed with off river hikes to The Maze, Indian Ruins, and waterfalls. The food was outstanding ~ breakfast, lunch,


Now 19 trips with Colorado River & Trail Expeditions since 1976.

Took back to back trips this May & June in Desolation Canyon and Cataract Canyon. These were the trips with professional photographer Tom Till from Moab. Could not have been better. Mikenna, one of my favorite guides, was the tip leader for both segments. Dave one of owners of the company and his son Walker


The BEST – 17 trips and counting

My first CRATE trip was in 1976. Have taken at least 16 additional trips with them, including both Alaska trips. Took my daughter when she was 10 and took my grandson when he turned 10. Have observed many other outfitters, CRATE is unquestionably the best … quality of gear, safety, sanitation, food variety and preparation.


12 Day Loma to Hite Dories

Yeah! CRATE knows how to do this stuff. I’ve done trips with a lot of different outfitters and Walker Mackay and his crew are a cut above the rest. I’d definitely go boatin’ with them again. They got cool swag,

Excellent support for private,5-dory trip on upper Colorado

CRATE provided the support for a private, 12-day, 5-dory trip on the upper Colorado (from Loma, Colorado, to the head of Lake Powell: Horsethief, Ruby, Westwater, Cataract Canyons, and the relatively flat water from Westwater to Cataract); another outfitter was involved from put-in to Westwater. Staff were well-trained, friendly, and took good care of us.


Canyonlands and Cataract Canyon with Wayne Ranney

This trip began at Red Clifs Lodge on May 17th and ended on the 26th. It was “The Most Wonderful” trip EVER!! Not only did we experience some awesome Rapids, we had the, pleasure of a geological education of the rock formations and layers of many era’s. We had Wayne Ranney with us and included

Cataract Canyon Trip 5/20/14

We just returned from our second adventure with CRATE. Two years ago we went on the river through the Grand Canyon, and last week we floated an hiked our way through Cataract Canyon. Each trip was truly an adventure, an exceptional experieince, loads of fun, beautiful scenery, and a good balance between hiking and rafting.

Cataract Canyon 20/21/22 May 2012 (3 nights / 4 days)

Trip of a lifetime, expertly cared for and looked after by the best in the business. Made some great friends. The food is out of this world and nothing is too much for the guides. All in all a brilliant trip and I would not hesitate to recommend CRATE to anyone. I wouldn’t go anywhere


Cataract Canyon Adventure

The guides of this trip took care of every detail. There was awesome food, great hiking and of course rapids and swimming. Camping under the stars every nite was so wonderful, you didn’t want to close your eyes. I also felt that the guides paid very close attention to safety and made sure everyone had

The BEST, Top-Notch, Highly Professional River Rafting Company!!

As a college professor, sometimes I just need to get-away so I joined the Colorado River & Trail Expeditions on their June 2011 Women’s Summer Solstice Retreat and had the most incredible four days (! Everything is done for you. From the moment we left Moab, Utah to the 84 miles of river we rafted


Crate – Colorado River & Trail Expeditions the best rafting company !

I came back a week ago from 2 rafting trips with CRATE. This time I went for 5 days of rafting in Desolation Canyon which were followed by 3 days of motor trip to Cataract Canyon. They have the best Crew/Guides, with so much knowledge, so nice and very helpful. Their equipment, food, safety, hikes,

CRATE is the best rafting/hiking experience you can have–and at the BEST PRICE!

Just finished 9 days of hiking and rafting the Green River with Colo. River and Trail Expeditions. This follows my trip of May 2010 down the Grand Canyon. CRATE continues to be the best hiking/rafting/camping experience imaginable. DEFINITELY try to use this company if you’re rafting Alaska, the Colorado, the Green River, etc. Family run


Awesome – the best

What more can I say – I have taken 17 trips with Colorado River & Trail over the past 31 years. Every trip they offer including both Alaska trips. Planing another Grand Canyon trip summer 2011 (my 7th). Their equipment is the best! The guides are outstanding! I would not consider any other
