Moab: Colorado River Dinner Cruise with Music and Light Show

1. Moab: Colorado River Dinner Cruise with Music and Light Show

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.

What people are saying about Moab

It was very nice. We had a buffet BBQ dinner and after went on a two hour narrated boat tour on the Colorado River. Our guide was very good, she pointed out sculptures in the rocks and history. It was quiet and very peaceful at times under the star lit night on the water.

We had the best experience with learning about the area and the beautiful terrain. Our tour guide Blaine was awesome and made the day very memorable. He was not only knowledgeable about the parks (Arches and Canyonlands) but super personable and made it a fun day for us.

Adam was amazing. Very considerate. He made it perfect with his great talking points and knowledge of the area. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

We had lots of fun rafting through the rapids, watching birds, talking to our guides.
