This 120-mile expedition takes you through the renowned Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park. It offers some of the wildest, most exciting whitewater in the country during the months of May, June, and early July, when the spring run-off fills the canyon's watercourse with raging torrents. From July to October, the river calms itself with lower water, but is by no means placid. Later summer offers pristine sandbars and warm water.Out Cataract expeditions float you past the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers through the challenging rapids of Cataract Canyon in the midst of Canyonlands.
Whether you are looking at the 3, 4, or 5 day Cataract Canyon adventure, you will experience some unforgettable memories. All three options take you through the heart of Canyonlands National Park, via the Colorado River. Depending on the length of your tour and the water levels at the time of your trip, will make the decision on what kind of craft you will be riding on.
