Fisher Towers

Moab, Utah

The basics

For hikers, the main access point to Fisher Towers is the Fishers Tower Trail, a rugged, 2.6-mile (4.2-kilometer) one-way trek that passes a series of dramatic rock formations. Many visitors, however, will see Fisher Towers from the water, on guided white-water rafting trips that range from half- to full-day outings. This portion of the river combines flat water with relatively small rapids, so it’s popular with families and novice rafters. It’s also possible to combine a Fisher Towers rafting trip with other desert experiences, such as 4WD tours.

Nice guide
We had an excellent guide, Luke. He was very personable and told fun/interesting stories. I sat up front so I got nice and soaked which is what I wanted. We even made friends with some of the other guests! However, there was another guide Lake, who was rude to Luke and I didn't appreciate it. He also threw the water proof bag with our phones in it and shrugged it off when Luke called him out for it. Not cool bro. Everyone else was nice and lunch was good. Totally would go again!!

Fisher Towers Half-Day Rafting Day Trip from Moab
The rapids were the most exciting, even getting wet was awesome. The kids wanted more rapids but maybe next time we will book the all day with more rapids. Our tour guide, Luke, was awesome especially for that being his first time without a trainer. Thanks Luke for an amazing time.

Fisher Towers Half-Day Rafting Day Trip from Moab
Jesse and Prichard were very knowledgeable about the river and all things Moab. They were even good sports about our sons asking 1000+ questions. I would recommend Navtec to anyone looking to explore Moab.

Popular White-Water Rafting Spots in Moab

Fisher Towers is among the most sought-after rafting spots in the area, but there’s plenty more to choose from. One favorite is the Colorado River at Westwater Canyon, with Class III and Class IV rapids that are more challenging than those in the Fisher Towers area. Just south of Moab, the Green River and the Colorado River converge above Cataract Canyon. Here rafters tackle a spectacular 100-mile (161-kilometer) river section that can be rafted in a single day or over multiple days.
