Moab Canyoneering Experience
Venture into water-carved canyons on this half-day Moab canyoneering adventure. Follow a guide along a 3-mile route of a slot canyon and learn technical skills to perform several rappels (abseils) into the sandstone chambers. You'll learn technical skills while your guide backs up each rappel on a separate safety system. Just bring sense of adventure!
What to Expect
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.

Thanks for the comments they really touch on how a guided trip is so much more than the activity. It’s the information and local knowledge, about things like the spring, that elevate the experience. Tommy and Cadi are incredible guides I am happy that you...More

All 8 of us, kids and adults, agree this was the best part of our two week vacation (even the people who were initially afraid). We had so much fun. Our guides, Adam and Patrick, were terrific - friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. The lunch was...More

Memories of a Lifetime!

We are an active family, but rappelling was a new step for all of us. The thrill-seeking 17-year old in our group thought it was awesome. The risk-averse 9-year-old had some reservations-- but our guide (Tommy) was the difference. His expertise and patience was exactly...More

Amazing experience: Canyoneering in Chamisa Canyon

My husband and I booked a morning half-day canyoneering trip through Chamisa Canyon outside of Moab. We had the guide to ourselves and could not have hoped for a better guide than Michaela. My husband was initially nervous about repelling 80 feet, but Michaela was...More

Rafting and canyoneering

Amazing experience. On one day, we did canyoneering, or falling down a cliff with ropes. Think reverse rock climbing. It included a hike to and from. I was scared out of my mind and our patient guide Sadie helped me. Im clumsy and possibly scared...More
