Friendship Cruise

Friendship Cruise

2012 has been cancelled due to water levels being too low. Look for us next year!

The Friendship Cruise begins on Memorial Day Weekend from the Green River to Moab, UT. See firsthand the river country of southeastern Utah as Major John Wesley Powell did over 100 years ago!

The 2012 Friendship Cruise promises to be an exciting holiday weekend for its participants.

The E.C.S.P. , a non-profit organization, has announced the 50th running of the annual Friendship Cruise for Memorial Day Weekend.

Friday May 28th thru Monday May 31st.

The cruise begins in Green River, Utah, down the pleasant Green River to the confluence of the mighty Colorado and up the river to Moab, Utah. The trip is 184 miles and usually takes two or three days to make the run, due to many natural and historic sites you may want to explore. The well-organized cruise includes transportation of your vehicle from Green River to Moab where it will be waiting for you at the Moab dock. Cruise rescue boats, launching and docking facilities and assistance, plus radio communications for emergency messages are included in the registration fee.

Please be advised that larger boats and deep-v hulls are marginal in low water. Jet-skis, catamarans and sailboats are not allowed. Pontoon boats must have a minimum of 150 hp engine.

THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.

NOTE: We will be getting out of the river at MGM this year due to construction at the Colorado River bridge.

Camping is done at your leisure, there are numerous places along both rivers to camp.

Camp with a group or by yourselves. Enjoy going through Utah’s spectacular Canyon Country.

Boaters arrive in Moab all day Sunday and Monday until 12:00 noon, for the disembarkation and travel home.

We hope to see you on the cruise through time and history.

    Can anyone tell me if I will have trouble getting my boat out at mineral springs? Will I have trouble getting down there with the trailer? It is not a deep v-hull, but is outboard drive. (fixed prop) Thank you Glen

      Right now you probably wouldn’t be able to get out at Mineral, it usually takes two four wheel drive outfits to get a boat out there on a good year, there is not enough water flowing this year to run your boat unless you don’t care about tearing up your outdrive. But we will be hoping for better water levels next year.
