  • Description

    A sport becomingly increasingly popular in the United States is shooting rapids in a canoe or rubber raft.

    And a particularly popular location for the sport is on the Colorado River in Utah, known as Cataract Canyon.

    Seventeen Commercial boat tour operators take tourists on a four-day rapid shooting trip in large, safe rubber rafts through the canyon. They charge about $250 (114) for the Journey.

    The adventurers get a chance to relax on a long stretch of calm water between the fast-flowing sections of river.

    One 12-mile stretch also takes in one of the biggest drops along the Colorado, known as Satan's Gap, which falls 30 feet in only three-quarters of a mile.
