Moab Rafting and Canoe Company offers classes for flat water paddling. The dramatic red rock scenery of The Colorado River corridor sets the stage for our canoe classes. Choose the workshop or private instruction. These classes are tailored to your ability and needs and we will focus on whatever area of paddling you want to improve. We feel confident that you will come away with a sense of personal satisfaction and achievement.
As a class participant, you will have the opportunity to try paddling tandem or solo on calm waters to help you develop your own style. Workshops or private instructions are led by a Utah licensed river guide and American Canoe Association certified instructor, trained in self river rescue.
All of our workshops begin with basic river safety. You will spend time on flat water learning and practicing basic strokes. Good, clean technique is essential for effective paddling. After our calm water session, we will move to working on maneuvers such as eddy turns, peel outs, spins, and ferries.

Again, over the years of booking trip we have to say we know the river. But, every trip is different. The time of season, water levels, weather the day you have booked for, and much more make the river fun all of the time!
- It is our policy to reserve the right to cancel any trip at the last minute due to extreme and unsafe conditions, such as high water (over 22,000 c.f.s.), fast-moving water, low water, cold, or high winds. Should this occur, no money will be exchanged. If conditions allow, we can/will postpone for a few hours or to the next day.
