We took a day of canyoneering in the winter with Joe and everyone had the most wonderful day. He was juggling my two kids (over-energetic enthusiasts) and me (serious case of arthritis). He was so professional and so much fun. He gave my girls the time of their lives, let the little one help him with the ropes (literally) and... More

I had the pleasure of taking an instructional full-day, multi-pitch climbing course with Red Desert Adventure in September 2015. I put a significant amount of time into researching various companies operating climbing courses near Zion and as soon as I saw that Eric Draper co-founded Red Desert Adventure, I knew that this was the company for me. Eric's climbing photography... More

Jeremy was our guide for our canyoneering experience. He picked our family up at our hotel at 11 a.m. on New Year's Day. He was very patient with our overenthusiastic and talkative (ages 11 and 12) daughters. He was an excellent guide. I was terrified of rapelling and he didn't make me feel bad about being nervous. He talked everyone... More

I waited too long to write this review but I can tell you this trip still brings a smile to my face. We did the canyoneering full day trip. Our guide picked us up at our hotel and took us to start point. We rappelled into slot canyons and landed in water up to our thighs which was actually pretty... More

Joel took us on a happy retirement full day adventure for my husband, Ed, and a cure your fear of heights therapy session for myself. We also wanted to learn "how to rappel" techniques. Joel did a fantastic job of being a teacher, professional climber, therapist and entertainer. It was mid November so stayed out of water as much as... More

My husband's first canyoneering trip; I've been a couple times before. The owner, Eric, answered all our questions, and was timely in return responses. Our full day adventure was with Jefe - who was perfect for us!! The hike back into Water Canyon was more challenging than I had expected; last time I went repelling we were dropped off at... More

Fun fun fun. If you're looking for a canyoneering experience, select Red Desert Adventures. Our guide, Jefe, made the half day outing a huge success for each of us. We had never repelled before, but he gave us the confidence to "step off the edge". Ask for him; you won't be sorry.

My friend and I went out with Red Desert Adventure on our first multi-pitch experience. We're intermediate level climbers and venture fairly regularly outdoors (single pitch up until now). Eric was our guide and we chose the full day option. It rained in days before, but we got lucky and it didn't rain on us. I do have to mention... More

When researching canyoneering trips, I had called several companies around Springdale. Eric was so helpful and patient and answered all my questions. He reassured me their safety was first rate. I booked an all day trip for our family. Dan picked us up at our hotel and took us to Water Canyon. On the drive there, he told us about... More

My husband and I booked a half day canyoneering trip. Jeremy picked us up at our hotel right on time. We drove to Lambs Noll. We were the first ones there. Two other companies came after us while we were putting on our gear. Jeremy was very informative and educational. We were never around the other people there. Our trip... More
