During the first segment of our river rafting trip the fast-moving current slides us quietly past brilliantly colored cliffs and towering table-top mesas. Here the river conditions both body and soul, giving you time to prepare yourself for the behemoth whitewater rapids awaiting below the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers.
Nowhere on its entire course does the Colorado River descend more precipitously than through Cataract Canyon. On night three of our river rafting adventure, the Colorado River will not rest. The roar of the cataracts will lull you to sleep, dance in your dreams, only to awaken you the next morning with a new song. Time to batten down the hatches and hold on because this is Cataract Canyon rafting at its best. Twenty-three BIG ONES, among them Mile Long, Ben Hurt and the grand-daddy of them all, The Big Drops, which is a succession of three heavy-hitters that will leave you laughing and cheering. We move 30 feet closer to sea level in less than a mile.

Itinerary
Day 01. Meet group at headquarters in Green River, Utah. We drive 1 ˝ hours to the put-in point on the river. Our first few miles take us past a collection of table top mesas. Short hikes reveal a variety of ancient artifacts.
Day 02. The river peacefully meanders into the heart of majestic Canyonlands National Park. Quiet beaches, hidden canyons and refreshing water fights are common through this section of the trip.
Day 03. We reach the confluence of the Colorado and Green rivers. The Ute Indians believed the Confluence to be the center of the universe, and some people still do. Just below the meeting of these two rivers we enjoy a view of the Doll House, an appropriately named collection of free standing, sandstone columns.
Day 04. Possible early morning hike into Doll House. Ascend steeply to the canyon rim in the Maze District surrounded by red rock formations. After descending to the river, the white water rapids of Cataract Canyon await. The climax: Big Drop Rapids with Little Niagara and Satan’s Gut.
Day 05. Lunch at Rock Canyon and a trip across Lake Powell with the aid of motorboat “Hayduke” brings us to Hite Marina and the conclusion of our amazing whitewater adventure. A two-hour drive returns us to Green River.
