Full description
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.

    After a long day at Canyonlands NP, we spent the evening learning some history of the area. VERY friendly staff - everyone was super helpful and you could tell they genuinely enjoyed being there. Very good food (there's a bunch of it). Beautiful scenery. Even my kids - 15 & 12 - enjoyed the ride.

    Everything was well done, dinner was excellent, employees and guides were great, but ultimately I was a little disappointed in the actual show. They need to up their game and make the lighting effects more diverse and creative. A lot of the kids were complaining that they "wanted to go home" way before the show ended.

    The cowboy dinner was yummy and the pulled pork was my favorite. And The recommendation to bring a jacket is a good idea. It did get chilly as the evening went on. The tour is old school but very interesting, relaxing and enjoyable. The stars in the sky were amazingly beautiful! Preston was our host and he was informative and funny.
