Moab Canyoneering Experience
From US$105.00
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.

Highlight of the trip!

Canyoneering is an awesome experience. We did the "moderate/difficult" tour which for four relatively fit 40-year-olds was not very strenuous. 180foot, 50foot, and 100foot rappels were awesome and we felt totally safe. Our guide Adam was one-of-a-kind, we would specifically book a trip with him...More

Great experience on Rock of Ages

Gorgeous canyon and super fun scramble and rappels. There were only two of us in the group and we didn't see anyone else the whole time we were out. Our guide Cadi was hilarious, entertaining and very safe/professional.More

We ROCKED Rock of Ages!

Way to go! Rock of Ages is a great canyon to accomplish and with Adam's decade of guiding experience I'm confident there were plenty of opportunities to organically share information about the area while keeping safety a top priority. We will make sure he sees...More

Great Experience, Unfortunately Cut Short We planned our first trip to Moab over Labor Day weekend. The primary goal (for me and my husband) was to explore Canyonlands and Arches via hiking. However, with our 12 and 14-year-old we realized we needed other activities. We...More

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
