Fisher Towers Overnight Expedition

Fisher Towers Overnight Expedition

(2 days, 1 night)

This trip is ideal for families and other small groups who want to combine the fun, splashy rapids of the Fisher Towers Daily Expedition with a cozy night of camping. Delicious food served up by our guides tastes even better as you warm your toes in the sand and watch sunset colors set the famous Fisher Tower formations ablaze.

What to Expect

DAY 1: Guests meet at 8:00 am at our office at 625 Riversands Road, where you can park your car at our enclosed property. Once you are checked in and your car is secure, we recommend you leave your car keys behind in our office so they don’t take a swim if you do. The trip begins with a beautiful 60-min drive along the Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway, a stretch of highway famous for its breathtaking views of sandstone cliffs, desert valleys, and lush river bottoms. You’ll find a refreshing cold cut sandwich lunch waiting when you arrive at the launch site. After an orientation on river safety, you’ll push off into the flowing water and get underway. Swimming breaks, splashy water fights, and relaxing under the sun will take up the rest of the day as you float toward camp. You’re welcome to take a little hike, build mud castles, or talk and laugh together as the guides cook up a hearty dinner. After watching the sky fade from brilliant shades to a rich velvet studded with stars, you’ll fall asleep cozy in your sleeping bag.

DAY 2: After a tasty hot breakfast, you’ll push off to enjoy the splashy rapids and magnificent scenery of the Fisher Towers section of the Colorado River. Your guides will prepare a refreshing buffet-style lunch riverside. Winding canyon views and a sandy beach for playing will finish off your adventure, returning to Moab about 4:00 pm.

What to Bring

On a wilderness adventure, happiness is bringing less -- not more. The items on this list should meet your needs throughout your trip. The night before departure, you will receive two dry bags for your gear: a small one for personal items you’ll want to access during the day, and a larger one to hold your camping gear and a change of clothes. The larger dry bag will have a sleeping bag, pad, and ground tarp already inside, leaving room for a small nylon gym bags’ worth of clothes (about 12”x12”x24” - be mindful of this limited space as you pack). Do not bring backpacks or suitcases to the river. Choose clothing that will keep you comfortable through a full day under the sun and can get wet. Most guests meet at our office ready for rafting, but a changing area and restrooms are available if you prefer to travel in regular clothing and change there.

Recommended Clothing:

  • Sun hat (and string to keep it from blowing off)
  • Quick drying shorts and/or swimming suit
  • T-shirts (Long sleeve is a good idea for sun protection in the hot summer months)
  • River sandals or two pairs tennis shoes (one to get wet, one for camp)
  • Lightweight long pants
  • Socks and underwear
  • Fleece jacket or sweatshirt
  • Rain gear

“We had such a great overnight trip last week! My 11 year old daughter didn’t want to be there, but after the amazing interaction with your guides she did things out of her comfort zone and is now planning our next river trip with you guys. I think you have a future boatman on your hands! “
