Full description

Watch the sun melt in the distance on a relaxing boat tour along the Colorado River from Moab. Savor an optional BBQ dinner on board and admire the breathtaking views of Utah from the water.

The tour departs the flat waters of the Colorado River and chases the sun as it hides behind the canyon walls, painting the sky and surrounding scenery with a rich palette of colors. Relax on board the boat and marvel at the spectacular and unique views that are only visible from the water. Along the way, discover an old Indian granary, ancient petroglyphs, and fascinating arches that enrich the landscape with history. After a leisurely 1.5-hour cruise, your skillful guide turns the boat around for the return journey to the dock. Upon arrival at the private dock, enjoy an optional western-style Dutch oven dinner against the backdrop of the Colorado River. This cowboy-inspired dinner is cooked all day to create the authentic and rich dishes of BBQ beef, BBQ pork, BBQ chicken, cowpoke potatoes, sweet baked beans, homemade rolls, pasta salad, and much more.

There's also an array of bottomless soft drinks and desserts to end the meal, as well as a selection of vegetarian-friendly options.

I booked this tour as a “last hoorah” in Moab for my family and I’m so glad we did. We all had blast on the sunset boat tour! Brandon was our tour guide and he was super funny and very knowledgeable of the area. It was smiles, excitement, and laughter from everyone all around. He stopped many places just to let us view the scenery of Moab on the Colorado river that’s you wouldn’t be able to see from the roads/trails! I highly recommend booking with them. I’ll definitely be coming back and doing more of their tours!!

Enjoyed a very interesting and educational boat ride. Our guide Brandon was very entertaining and shared lots of great information about the river, mountains, and the Moab area. Dinner was not so great but was nice to have some time to meet some of the other people on the boat.

We really enjoyed the jet boat cruise. The sights were amazing and Brandon was an excellent host. The dinner, however, was terrible. The meat was cold which concerned me. Its really easy to keep food hot and safe for your customers. It’s a shame they couldn’t do that, as their customer service was excellent. I recommend the boat ride, but cannot recommend the buffet meal.
