Western River Expeditions Keeping Rafting Vacations Exciting with Varying Water Levels

By: Western River Expeditions
SALT LAKE CITY - Oct. 12, 2021 - PRLog -- Western River Expeditions, the experts in whitewater river rafting for more than half a century, explain that there's more than just one way to run a river, even during a drought.

"We pair our guests with one of four different kinds of craft, depending on how adventurous they choose to be, the trip they choose and current water levels," says co-owner Brandon Lake. In general, each raft type offers a different kind of ride through the waves, holds different amounts of cargo for multi-day expeditions and offers different modes of propulsion. By having a large inventory of raft types, Western can customize the experience for each trip.

Options include Western River Expeditions' custom-patented J-Rig raft, a comfortable oar rig, a paddle raft, or an inflatable kayak.

Called "The Cadillac of the Colorado", a motorized J-Rig for up to 18 thrill-seeking passengers is the only craft used by Western River on trips in the Grand Canyon.

Western's other river rafts come into play when rafting other destinations.

●       Oar-Rig River Raft: A guide wields long oars for strategic maneuvers through calm and whitewater in this 5-passenger craft.

●       Paddle Raft: Up to 8 passengers and a guide, all with paddles, work together to keep the raft afloat through challenging waters. They are great for Class II-III rapids and even Class IV with a skilled guide.

●       Western's "Duckie" or Inflatable Kayak: Every rapid feels big in an inflatable kayak that's both buoyant and very maneuverable. Guides point you in the right direction, but the paddling and steering are all up to you.
