Meet your guide in central Moab and depart on tour half-day canyoneering adventure in the heart of the Colorado Plateau. A short hike across petrified sand dunes takes you to the first of two rappels. Your guide will equip you with a helmet and other safety gear and demonstrate rappel techniques; no experience is necessary and most ages and skill levels can be accommodated.  

You'll make a 90-foot (27-meter) drop into a water-carved, sandstone chamber that leads through a small slot. It's another short walk to a second free-hanging rappel of 120 feet (37 meters), which affords an up-close view of the 243-foot-long (74-meter) Morning Glory Arch, which stands a short distance from your rappel station.

Then it's downhill to a spring-fed stream on the Colorado River. You'll learn a bit about the area's plants, geology, wildlife, and history before returning back to the starting point.

An incredible experience! Adam and Emily were both professional, fun and all around superb guides! It was incredible to be so close to the magical morning glory arch and the hike was gorgeous! We went with our 11 year old son and he is completely hooked!
Best way to explore

Best way to explore in town. Adam was knowledgeable about everything from the technical parts to the equipment to all the history of the area. We had a blast and can't wait to come back and do more.

This was my first time repelling. Had a great time. The guides were fun and very entertaining. In our group there were all ages and everyone seemed to be having a good time. Great sights.
First time canyoneering!

Brian, Hunter and Hanna were great guides for my family of first timers. We all appreciated their experience, encouragement and terrible jokes haha! The hike was an added bonus you! Thank you for a great experience, we will be doing this again for sure!
Great Adventure with family

We had a blast, I highly recommend this tour. A 90ft and a 120ft rappel into the canyon with a great hike on the way out. The guides were super nice, knowledgeable and patient!! My mother did the tour and loved the rappels!!
Great fun!

Great experience! It was much more interesting and technically challenging than we thought based on the description. There were kids on up to more mature adults on our trip but the lead guide, Adam was so helpful and patient with everyone so that everyone could maneuver the slot, climbs and repels. Very well managed and we had a ton of fun! Would recommend it!

Adam was an excellent guide. He even took us out on his birthday!! I didn't know what to really expect, but we had a great adventure. My kids had a wonderful time as well. It was fun and challenging and we would definitely do it again!
Much Appreciated

The staff were really wonderful. We had to cancel at the last minute due to an injury and they were helpful in squaring things.
