DEEP CANYON, LANGUID WATERS AND BIG RAPIDS. SO COOL!
To reach the rapids in Cataract Canyon you must first float the lazy waters of either Meander Canyon on the Colorado or Stillwater on the Green. Neither are scary sounding but don’t get too complacent. After the confluence of the two rivers, everything changes and depending on levels, the river can surprise you with up to Class V rapids.
Water level fluctuations are extreme and the river wears many faces so do your research. Depending on where you put in you will float about 95 river miles. In just 14 miles of those miles, you'll find 29 rapids.
The most common launch is from Potash on the Colorado. You can also launch from Mineral Bottom on the Green River or at Green River State Park. Please note, Hite Marina is defunct due to low lake levels and we will shuttle all cars to the North Wash/Dirty Devil take out on river right just upstream from Hite Marina. At present, the NPS website still states that Hite Marina is still the takeout.
PLEASE NOTE: It is best to give us at least four weeks notice (more for holiday weekends) if you would like to book this shuttle. It is a 7-9 hour shuttle and we can't always run this at the drop of a hat. But don't let this deter you from calling if you are within this time frame, I may be able to squeeze you in.
Note: There is an additional charge for oversized vehicles and trailers with vehicles on them. There is no charge for empty trailers.
Another Note: All changes must be made prior to launch. You cannot just leave a note or a message about a new key hiding place, takeout date or cancellation. You must receive confirmation that the information was received from the office before you launch. There is no cell service at many of the launches, including Ruby Ranch, Potash and Mineral Bottom.
