Since 1977, Splore has been a part of the Moab community, providing whitewater rafting adventures for people of all abilities and creating memories that last a lifetime. Throughout the summer, Splore provides trips to individuals, families and groups with a spectrum of disabilities, whether physical, cognitive, financial or social. “I LOVE THE SPLORE STAFF & VOLUNTEERS!!” wrote one Splore participant, “You make the impossible possible; the true miracle workers. I can’t begin to thank you enough.”

No matter the ability level, Splore is able to adapt a rafting experience that will be sure to stay in your hearts forever.
