Yampa and Green River Rafting Trips in Utah
Formerly Don Hatch River Expeditions
Originally founded by Don Hatch’s father, Bus Hatch, in 1929, Don Hatch River Expeditions was Utah’s preeminent river running company for more than 75 years. Following Don’s death in 1994, his widow, Meg Hatch, continued to run Don Hatch River Expeditions until 2007 when she turned to OARS Founder, George Wendt, to carry on the Don Hatch Legacy. In 2008, with blessings from the National Park Service, Don Hatch River Expeditions became a part of the OARS Family of Companies.
Today, OARS is proud to carry on the legacy of Don Hatch River Expeditions and a tradition of quality Utah rafting adventures. Explore the legendary canyons of the Green and Yampa Rivers on a 1- to 5-day rafting trip for adventurous first timers and families with kids as young as 4 years old.
