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.
Please contact us for more information and available dates.
Single day: $165 per person Two day: $210 per person
To reserve boats and trip date: Feel free to call or email us for date availability. We will be more than happy to send out a trip packet with more information and a worksheet for you to complete and return. We will ask for credit card to hold the trip date and rental gear. If you have to cancel within 14 days of your trip, we will run your card for 50% of your booked reservation total. If you cancel within 3 days of trip or are a “no show”, we will run the card for the whole amount of the reservation. All reservation fees are due in full the day of the trip.
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.
- For groups of 10 or more, a deposit of $15 per person is due the day of reserving your trip date. This is non-refundable. The balance is due the day of launch date for the group size you reserved.
