Back in the early 80's I rafted from Moab to Lake Powell. There are rapids that will challenge you mightily, even in late summer with low water. As someone else mentioned, you will need at least a couple of buddies with you. The rule of thumb was that in the Spring, one in four rafts would flip in the Big Drop rapids, while in the late summer 1 in 7 would flip. I consider myself a moderately experienced kayaker, but I am not competent for the big rapids.
