Fisher Towers

Moab, Utah

The basics

For hikers, the main access point to Fisher Towers is the Fishers Tower Trail, a rugged, 2.6-mile (4.2-kilometer) one-way trek that passes a series of dramatic rock formations. Many visitors, however, will see Fisher Towers from the water, on guided white-water rafting trips that range from half- to full-day outings. This portion of the river combines flat water with relatively small rapids, so it’s popular with families and novice rafters. It’s also possible to combine a Fisher Towers rafting trip with other desert experiences, such as 4WD tours.

Super great time
While the river was pretty calm, we had an excellent experience! We learned a lot on our tour and the entertainment was great. Our guide Collin was a blast! Definitely recommend!

Colorado River Rafting: Afternoon Half-Day at Fisher Towers
With a day to myself before meeting family, this was an enjoyable way to spend a few hours on a hot sunny day. Nothing extreme, just a gentle trip on the river with some riffles to keep things interesting; the included lunch was very good. Our guide was very friendly and capable, he made the trip fun. In all a well-organized outing which was great for the swimmers too, especially the children on our raft.

Fisher Towers Half-Day Rafting Day Trip from Moab
Everyone we interacted with were great. Our guide on the river was Tiana. She was adorable and so professional. She gave us lots of river facts. She was very special with the young men in our group who’s 11, 14 and 16 year old antics kept us all laughing. Great experience and it was all our first time. We will definitely do this again.

Ethan was a good guide. He told us about what the rocks were called. When we asked questions he always seemed to have an answer. Took us over some rapids. We enjoyed our trip with him.

Full-Day Colorado River Rafting Tour at Fisher Towers
We had a great time and Kelly was awesome, at this time of year (late July) water is down and a bit calm. We will try again when it’s a bit more exciting. After seeing the bigger companies and the amount of people, we were very happy we chose adrift.

Fisher Towers Half-Day Rafting Day Trip from Moab
Our river guide and driver were very pleasant. The river float was enjoyable, unfortunately the river was down and it was more of a float then rafting. Would recommend.

Popular White-Water Rafting Spots in Moab

Fisher Towers is among the most sought-after rafting spots in the area, but there’s plenty more to choose from. One favorite is the Colorado River at Westwater Canyon, with Class III and Class IV rapids that are more challenging than those in the Fisher Towers area. Just south of Moab, the Green River and the Colorado River converge above Cataract Canyon. Here rafters tackle a spectacular 100-mile (161-kilometer) river section that can be rafted in a single day or over multiple days.
