Default Moab rafting

My sister and family want to do a rafting trip in Moab this summer. Anyone here have any recommendations for a tour company? I've never booked anything commercial down there personally.

I highly recommend the stretch of the Colorado from Loma to Westwater. You rent rafts from http://www.rradventures.com/ in Fruita and they pick you up by shuttle at the end. Its an overnight trip. I have done it 4 or 5 times and have it totally dialed in. If interested, lets talk this weekend.

They only have a day to float so overnight will not work for them. They will be in Moab in August. (hot, real hot) so a day on the river is appealing. Have two kids 4, 7yrs. Flat water is fine, preferred really.

The Castle Valley stretch is about the only thing there that will fit their schedule and age restrictions.

Corbet, they should check out the night show boat ride. I've never done it but I've heard from others that it's pretty cool for families. http://www.moab-utah.com/canyonlandsbynight/

That's what I was thinking too.

Try the Moab Adventure Center. Jason Taylor and his wife are or we're river guides for the MAC. Jason is now incharge of operations at the MAC and is the guy helping us secure the MAC open lot.

They do day trips all the time and it would be good if they mention our club recommended them to the MAC.
