You may want to read the regs regarding private trips...any monetary exchange for a "guide" places the trip in commercial status.

Like 2tomcat2 said, you need to define the needs and expectations of a the guide. Do you just want a person to join your group to give you guidance or direction down the river? Are you rowing your own boat? Do you plan on getting a private permit? Do you want someone to arrange meals, shuttles, or other service? There are some very good professional guide services that run Westwater. I'm partial to Rimrock Adventures in Fruita - they're local and just down the road from my home.

Thank y'all for the feedback and guidance

I apparently don't know the rules so thank you. And that is either self guide or go full commercial, no in between, understandable but inhibiting to the overall societal mission. ...I won't droll on with the thesis behind that statement!
