My husband and I booked the overnight Cataract Canyon rafting trip through Tag-a-long Expeditions and we are so glad we did. Ben was our guide assisted by Aubrey. We felt like royalty as they both made sure we were well taken care of. Our first day we rode 9 of the rapids and then camped. Ben and Aubrey fixed us a wonderful supper of steak and potatoes with a excellent appetizer first. We had a wonderful camping spot with lots of stars and the weather could not have been better. After breakfast, Ben explained what to expect on the 21 rapids that we would ride that day. Ben was a outstanding guide and we had the experience of a lifetime !!!!!! Ben guided us through the rapids with his expert knowledge and exceeded our expectations!!!!! This is a trip that my husband will talk about for years to come . Thankyou Tag ALong Expeditions and especially Ben and Aubrey for a once in a lifetime awesome trip! The scenic plane ride back was awesome too. If you want a whitewater rafting trip we highly recommend Tag A long Expeditions and ask for Ben as your guide. You will be glad you did!!!!!!

I used to guide this section back in the day, doing 5 day non-motorized row trips.

the scenery is fabulous, the first 2 or 3 days are relaxing float and walks, then a day and a half of rapids, and then some motoring off Lake Powell. More or less- the itinerary is different depending on the river flows- be flexible, listen to your guides and you'll have a great time.

You can do motorized trips, but I liked the pace of the quiet row trips better. Read the brochures of the companies that offer trips, and go with the one that fits what you're looking for. I used to work for Sheri Griffith Expeditions for 11 years, but really, all the companies down there are OK.

If you want to do a private trip with your own boat, a good website for details is the Mountain Buzz forums. But if you are doing a private trip in Cat, why would you be reading this review?

The rapids here in the spring runoff can be HUGE, if the Rocky Mtn snowpack is 100% of average, BIG if its even in the 70% plus range.

Go, enjoy!

Whitewater,camping and Tag-A-Long make a superb combination. If you want the real thing, fantastic camping along the river (I've never even put up a tent, just slept under the stars) and have some time, take at least the 3 day option with Tag.

The rapids are amazing, the scenery fabulous! Could not ask for a better stretch of river to raft. The water is cold! Make sure you bring rain gear.
