Hello everyone. Brand new to forum and rafting. I would like to ask you guys about Westwater Canyon. But first I will tell you about myself. I have recently bought a Outlaw Assault raft. It is a single man 9' raft. Open in the front so it could be used as a kick boat. It has oars, 6' I think. Very durable material. I took it down the Gunnison Gorge for it's first trip. This was also my first trip. I couldn't find any body I know to come with me, so I went alone. Little bit intimidating but very fun. Flow was somewhere around 1300-1400 at the time. Nice trip. But I am looking at going down Westwater. My brother and friend may go with me. He has a larger raft. But he too is not experienced. How is it? I have been checking out the rapid list. Is it a ok trip for beginners to do alone, no guide? Compared to Gunnison Gorge what is the difficulty like? how many hours does it take with flow around 4900? I think that's what I read. If you have any links other than Westwater Canyon Whitewater Kayaking & Canoeing Trip on the Colorado River in Utah - Whitewater Kayak & Canoe Westwater Canyon - Westwater Canyon Whitewater Kayak & Canoe Trip please post. Thank you for all your help, and hopefully I will be able to meet and float with some of you.
