Coronavirus – What is happening now:
We want you to know that we have spent countless hours, days, and weeks collecting information and formulating a plan that keeps our employees, community and guests informed, safe and happy!

Utah has adopted a color-coded system to advise residents and visitors of restrictions and protocols that must be followed when venturing beyond the home.

The colors are red, orange, yellow and green.

Today, the majority of the state is operating under “yellow” guidelines. This now includes Grand County (Moab) and Salt Lake County.

Face coverings are required in Moab until at least Dec. 31, 2020 by order of the regional health department.

See the Utah Coronavirus page for complete details.

What this means for Red River Adventures

We are open and operating rafting, climbing and canyoneering trips in Moab, and climbing in Salt Lake City.

In order to comply with CDC, state, and local guidelines, our trips will look a bit different for the 2020 season.

What this means for your trip

We are trying to keep you, our guests, outside and mask-free to the greatest extent possible.
Having final payments made and online waivers signed will eliminate the use of our office and the need to wear masks at RRA.
We ask you for your understanding and cooperation in helping us meet the state guidelines that allow us to operate!

Masks or face coverings are required in our office and while riding in our vans and buses!

All trips – General Guidelines

*Each participant MUST bring a face mask/face covering.
*Waivers and final payments MUST BE complete prior to arrival.
*We will seek to minimize the use of our office and facilities as much as possible.
*We will ask everyone to observe mandated social-distancing rules.
*Only when social distancing cannot be maintained, face masks/coverings will be worn.
*Please arrive ready to depart, having used the bathroom prior to your arrival at Red River.
*Check-in and departure will take place outside our office to the extent possible.

Rafting

*Launches will be limited to group size prescribed by the State of Utah color code and local guidelines. “Yellow” guidelines allow groups of 50. We are currently using “orange” guidelines, with approx. 20-25 guests per launch.

Canyoneering

*Trips may be guided at a maximum of 6 guests to 1 guide.
*Trips may see multiple parties traveling together where group size is manageable within current guidelines.
*When practical, guests will use their own vehicle for transportation to the venue.
