Our family had a great time! Not everyone loves to hike and repel like I do so I was stoked we all made it through all the repels! Noah was a great guide and the hike and views of the Bow and Arrow were as amazing as the repelling!

We had a full day rafting trip at Moab, certainly one of the most memorable trips we have ever taken. The scenery was glorious and the staff at Red River were all great, especially our fantastic guide Sofia. I highly recommend this for anyone, the rapids are just enough to be exiting without being scary and the guides are fantastic at talking you through each stage. A great time was had by all.

1st rafting trip for my young kids (5 & 6 y/o). Had a blast! Highly recommend this company. Sam is amazing! Lots of history explained to us. If you're debating between a 1/2 day or full day trip...- do FULL day! We saw the 1/2 day people get off & for us it would have been too short.

It was a fun time. We did the half day raft trip which was one hour driving time (30 mins there and back) and 2 hours on the water. It was fine for me but I think our teens would’ve like a little more action. This was a pretty calm ride with a couple of good rapids. The scenery was beautiful. The guides were interesting and professional. We felt very safe. They got us in very last minute which was really nice. No snacks but they do have cold water to fill your bottle.

It was a wonderful experience, especially on the Father’s Day. We took the 1/2 day am raft and it was super fun! McKayla was our guide and she was amazing. She allowed my 9 year old to have a “bull ride” on the boat. She made us row the boat & that was super fun. She kept us engaged with all the interesting stories. All people at the ‘Red River Adventures’ are very professional, knowledgeable, friendly. and follow every safety protocols. I would highly recommend Red River Adventures. One word of caution: we booked on a Sunday and their photographer is NOT available on Sundays.

Red river adventures was amazing! Their guides were great! Half day tour was the perfect amount. Great scenery! Mostly a float than white water rafting since the rapids were small - perfect for families - or someone who just wants the view!

We had a lot of fun on the river. The guides were knowledgeable and fun. The rapids were just big enough that the kids thought they were fun and not scarey. My only disappointment was that there was not a big enough raft for our group of 9 to go together. Otherwise it was fun and Red River did a good job! Thanks

White Water Rafting Fisher Towers in mid June. Excellent service and experience starting with booking. Upon arrival staff was polite and informative, focusing on safety, education and fun. Our guide Lily was AWESOME! Our raft was a combo two separate groups and she did an awesome job bringing us together and ensuring everyone had a great time. She was knowledgeable about the topography, pointing out tons of great things we would have missed. She also gave us AMAZING insider tips on the best places to swim in the area. Looking forward to our next trip already!

Great half day adventure! If you’re looking to optimize your stay in Moab, or have the afternoon off like I did, what is better than spending it on water, having fun? Not much, in my opinion. After doing my research, I decided to go on a Whitewater Rafting adventure and chose Red River Adventures. It turned out to be a great decision! Super friendly, fun and helpful staff & crew. Smaller-sized rafts, max 6 plus the guide, allows for getting to know the folks who literally are in the same boat as you. Our guide, Sofia, was stellar! Fun, sweet and yet decisive and firm when needed to. I was impressed by her command of the group, the raft and what to do - and she’s only 18! (Sorry for “ratting out your age” ;-). Going through initially pretty easy rapids, we got “schooled” along the way as the rapids grew wilder. Paddling through an area of crazy waves and rapids, with the raft surfing on top of every crest, was thrilling and we all squealed of excitement! Only problem was that it ended too soon… I guess I have to come back and do the full day next time! Spectacular way to spend your afternoon, great experience and energizing fun!

Awesome time! The bad: the high winds, which meant extra paddling esp when we were pushed backwards :) Our amazing guide, Luke had it under control - getting us out of wayward bushes to setting us up to perfectly ride the rapids. The good: the high winds kept us cool on the river where there is no shade. Very smooth operation, everyone extremely upbeat and professional. Tons of water for refills. They do provide dry bags on the rafts to hold phone and keys; or bring your own.

The guides did a great job. Meredith was very good and was a pleasure to have guide us. She was smart, funny and had a beautiful spirit about her. Overall, the trip was fun but overpriced as another rafting company was less expensive and provided lunch. I guess if the other company was available we wouldn't have had our awesome guides though so it worked out after all.

Canyoneering at morning glory with red river was an amazing experience. Our tour guide, who was Dan, was an amazing and awesome guide. He was extremely patient and very helpful with my kids and even helped bring down one of my kids during the repelling parts. I would definitely go through them again and encourage others to do the same. You won't regret it. It's an experience me and my kids will remember for the rest of our lives.

Fun rafting experience for kids and beginners. We have done several rafting trips, and decided to take our kids on their first one. We went on June 1st and the rapids were pretty mild, perfect for our kids. The guides were sweet too! Make sure you tip these college kids well!
