We are in the 70+ age bracket so it was with some trepidation that we booked our 3 day Green River rafting trip starting at the Gates of Ladore. The option not to paddle suited us perfectly and 'Yeti' did the work, and the bonus was his knowledge of the Geology, Geography and Botany of the area. The mix of... More

The white water wasn't as high has it should be because of the time of year, nevertheless we had a great time. The views are breath... More

We wanted to do some river rafting on the Green River and Don Hatch had a perfect trip for us, leaving from Vernal. It was a one day trip with fairly calm water, but enough Class 2 and 3 rapids to keep it interesting. There was also time to swim in the river, but it was a little cold for... More

We did the 1-day trip on Green River in the Dinosaur NM. All members of our family - my wife and I as well as our four Boys (age 9-18) had all a lot of fun. The rapids were not too scary, but still a lot of fun, and we enjoyed the spectular scenery, big horn sheep on the way,... More

We took the one day rafting trip down the Green River through Split Rock Canyon with our sixteen year old son and six year old daughter. As you can imagine, finding a family activity that is the right speed for both a sixteen year old and a six year old can be a challenge, but this was perfect! Note that... More

Kudos to Corey and the rest of the staff. We had a great time on the river. We had wonderful weather, enjoyed the added petroglyph hike, and really appreciated the bountiful and varied lunch buffet. Fun ride on the rapids.
