Summer days in Moab can be hot. And there is no better way to cool down than taking a refreshing river trip. Tag-A-Long Expeditions has just that.

You are transported through the profound geologic time of ancient seas and sand dunes, dinosaur habitat, and the trails of the first Native American occupants, then later, the settlers of the Moab area.

Maximize your visit with a combination of activities to develop a unique experience of the region.
TWO PARKS IN 1 DAY – While Arches National Park has a perfectly sturdy road to drive and access an abundance of arches, sights and hikes, you might want to go off-road and experience the narrative of a guided tour of the park. The dirt road avails a look at a dinosaur trackway and is the shortest 4x4 route Tag-A-Long offers, so for those who wish to sample an off-road trail this is for you too. And we are thrilled to announce you can combine this trip with a jetboat or 4x4 tour of Canyonlands for a full day outing to include Two Parks in 1 Day!

WATER – “Too thick to drink and too thin to plow” was once said to describe the Colorado River. Go see for yourself. Rafting all day is a favorite and certainly available. Again, should you be mindful to do more in a day, Tag-A-Long can serve you with a calm water scenic jetboat tour of Canyonlands (downstream of Moab) for half of a day and another half-day to be spent cavorting in Professor Valley on the Colorado River upstream of Canyonlands and Moab by raft. Either trip can be completed independent of the other, particularly, if you have to drive onward mid-day to your next destination or have plans to hike on your own that same day. Still, it is hoped you will stay and play once you have learned just how much FUN is available to you in Moab!

PREMIER TOUR – Tag-A-Long Expeditions began serving visitors to the area in 1964 and early on contracted public land permits that are no longer available to other outfitters. An especially popular tour is one integrating the jetboat tour of Canyonlands with the 4x4 tour of Canyonlands. It is a fascinating perspective to see this 337,570 acres encapsulated in this one day excursion. It is rivers which trisect this park into three districts.

Upon the Colorado River, you glimpse the power of erosion and plateau uplift, that combined, deposited a tantalizing formation of canyons and drainages. Our narrative will benefit your understanding of geology, flora and fauna, human history and generally reveal the mystery of the area.

FUN – Fun is for all ages. Rafting in Professor Valley is appropriate for 40 pound children, this stretch of The Colorado River is a great idea to get out from behind the windshield to experience the outdoors, and in the heat it is 8ºF/3ºC cooler over the water. Even cooler taking a dip in the river. The jetboat is a come-as-you-are river experience. It is a dry river ride. It feels good to feel the wind over your skin as it negotiates the Colorado River under Dead Horse State Park at 20 mph/32 kph. Prefer brawling whitewater? Tag-A-Long Expeditions has 3-4 days a week that Whitewater rafts are launched for Westwater Canyon. It is exclusive at 25 participants. No river rafting experience necessary. Friendly staff await your visit or phone call to help select an activity that is appealing and professional. Ask about adding a camel or horseback ride, sky dive or scenic flight, drive your own ATV or dune buggy to the previous suggestions.
