Our float trip was amazing. It was relaxing, informative, educational, and the scenery was incredible. Jesse was the perfect guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable, engaging, and easy to talk to. My wife and I are glad we took the ride. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

Took my 11-year-old and he loved it. It was his first time flying and Jon did a great job flying and explaining the features around Moab and the parks. If you've only flown on planes, helicopters are completely different and a great way to experience Utah.

Punctual boat trip in good raft with competent guide. Quiet drive as expected with short hike to petrified trees. Due to the low water level in the Colorado, we got out at times to drag the town over a sandbar in knee-deep water.

John was great, thanks for the great flight and info guide From the other 2 of the 4 J's on the flight Jay and Jerry

Josh the guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the entire trip.
