Moab: Sound and Light Show with Dinner

2. Moab: Sound and Light Show with Dinner

Begin the evening on the banks of the Colorado River, just 2 miles north of Moab, Utah. Savor a delicious cowboy-style Dutch oven dinner in a dining room overlooking the water. After dinner, climb aboard a flat-bottomed boat and begin your river adventure. A knowledgeable and entertaining guide will point out things of interest and ignite your imagination. Once darkness settles in, the formal part of the evening begins when 40,000 watts of natural light illuminate the canyon wall. Watch as lights, shadows, music, and narration make the stories of the canyon's formation, creation, and history come to life on the walls above the river - as learned from the early settlers of the area (the Catholic conquistadors, Native Americans, and Mormon pioneers). This Sound and Light Show is a not-to-be-missed unique experience and a great end to a perfect day in Moab.

What people are saying about Utah

Thrilling, scary, exhilarating, this tour has it all! Absolutely, thoroughly enjoyed driving Hell's Revenge. I still don't understand how it's possible, but I'd do this again in a heartbeat. Jessie was a great guide as well, filled with knowledge and jokes making the tour entertaining as well as educational. Coming to Moab and NOT doing this tour is a mistake.

Our guy that took us on our little trip was awesome. He was just a bump on a long . He gave us alittle insight on the history and culture . He was down to earth and if we ever came back this would be the place. Thanks

Amazing jeep UV ride to two amazing slot caves. Joe, our guide, was fun and informative. The ride through dunes and trails was better than a roller coaster and so much fun. Highly recommend this!

Best tour and specially with our tour guide jessy, he was awesome and very friendly Definitely will do it again

Lots of fun with some Adrenalin thrown in! Felt safe the whole time. Would recommend!
