Full Day River Float: Ruby/Horsethief Canyons


The Ruby and Horsethief Canyons of the Colorado River are only accessible by trail or river, and taking a raft is a great way to experience 25 miles of beauty. We start early at 8 a.m. down the Colorado River and, after a few miles of open terrain, begin traveling between towering red sandstone canyons. While the guide prepares lunch at one of several camping spots in the canyons, guests can relax on beaches and enjoy a delicious lunch by the river. If time permits, guides will take guests to some easy trails off the river where pictographs from the Fremont Indian culture can be viewed. After your relaxing float down the Colorado river we will pick you up and bring you back to our office between 4-5 p.m.

The beginning portion of the river is calm water surrounded by scenic canyon walls and contains historic sites such as the Miners Cabin which sheltered outlaws, rivermen, miners and prospectors. Just before entering the rapids section we stop for a deli-style lunch and if time permits, we will take a short hike. After lunch, we will experience a series of 11 rapids including Little D, Staircase, Big Hummer, Funnel Falls, Skull and Sock-It-To-Me.
