Raft Types in Westwater Canyon
Westwater Canyon is a blast on paddle rafts! The rapids on this stretch of the Colorado River are generally quite wild and make for some thrilling memories to tell back home. Not to worry, though. The rapids don't begin right away so you'll get a chance to learn some paddling skills before you will really need them for the bigger class IV-V rapids that come after lunch. Most will experience Westwater Canyon rapids from a paddle raft. Listen to, and learn from your guides about "T" grips and digging in with the blade through the whitewater and you'll feel an exhilarating sense of accomplishment, having conquered the rapids of the mighty Colorado River!
You will also have a chance to hop in an Oar-Rig where your guide will do all the rowing - all you have to do is hold on!
