River Rafting / Tubing · Boat Tour
In 2007, the OARS Family of Companies purchased Don Hatch River Expeditions – a name that has been synonymous with river running since 1929 when it became the first river concessioner in the country. Since then, OARS has ensured the Hatch legacy continues, offering 1-day Split Mountain rafting trips, as well as multi-day trips on the Green & Yampa Rivers through the heart of Dinosaur National Monument, from its OARS Dinosaur outpost in Vernal, UT.

For more than 50 year, OARS’ ongoing mission has always remained the same: to give people the best outdoor experience of their lives – a mission that has earned us the reputation as one of the best whitewater rafting outfitters in the world.

"The best river & sea outfitter on Earth!" - National Geographic Adventure.

  • What a wonderful experience! My teenagers and I had an awesome time on the 1 day Split Mountain excursion. A great mix of Class II and III Rapids along with some calm waters to kick back and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Our guides, Maria and Tony were awesome, as was our bus driver. Top notch service and all so personable. This was our first whitewater rafting excursion and we can't wait to go back. Worth every penny and more!
  • Had a great experience on the Green River full day rafting trip! Lee, the team leader, took safety issues very seriously. The crew was friendly and personable. We got wet, but no one went into the river....unless the chose to. Lunch was great and plenty of it! Definitely recommend this company.
