We had a great day, courtesy of Joe. Both adults had done something like this before, our 13 and 11 year olds had a bit of experience climbing / abseiling and our youngest child who is 8 had just done a bit of climbing on the REI wall. Joe took us to a great canyon about 30 minutes from Zion... More

Our family of four had an incredible morning rock climbing with our guide Eric! We highly recommend both him and Red Desert Adventure. Eric was extremely knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. Except for my one son, none of us had experience rock climbing, yet he led us on several climbs, one of them being an "intermediate" level climb. We also... More

We did a full day canyoneering adventure in Water Canyon. We had a group of 6 - ages 21 to 60, 2 guys & 4 gals, 5 used to exercise and adventures and 1 not so much, 4 that had canyoneered before and 2 that hadn't. So how to you find a guide that can meet such a diverse groups'... More

Our guide Dan was Awesome. He picked us up 5 minutes from our hotel in Hurricane, UT and drove us 20 minutes to Water Canon for a full day adventure. He was very knowledgeable and gave us specific instructions. He was very safety conscious and double checked everything. Dan personalized the trip and took our teenage boys exploring in one... More

Walking yourself down a steep canyon edge, back to the ground is an experience of a lifetime. Our guide drove us a half-hour from the Zion entrance to a set of picturesque slot canyons where we did not see another sole the entire day. The hiking to the top of the canyon is beautiful and warm followed by the cool... More

My son and I were paired with Eric for a day of canyoneering/rapelling with Eric and I could not be more impressed. After we chose Water Canyon about an hour from Springdale he led us on a climb up and multiple rappels down that were the perfect mix of fun and adventure. It was my 16 year old sons first... More

We took a half day canyoneering adventure with Jeremy as our guide and I cannot say enough good things about our trip. Jeremy was knowledgable, funny, articulate, calm. He not only gave us excellent instruction on how to rappel and make knots but also was a wealth of information about the Zion area, the geological history of the land, the... More

Wonderful, personalized experience with our guide, Dan. The only outfitter in Springdale that picks you up at your hotel. Dan took us to a quiet, beautiful slot canyon, where we saw no one else the entire time. We were a bit nervous and scared of the 150-foot rappel, but Dan was very patient and encouraging. He also went out of... More

Being scared of heights, it was a leap of faith for my brother & I but Eric made us feel so safe and secure that the fear quickly turned into fun. We went as a family 5 and even my 10 year old nephew was able to navigate the canyons and ropes with Eric's techniques. He was so knowledgable on... More

This was something on my bucket list that definitely was worth doing! Eric was a fantastic guide; very knowledgeable and passionate about this area and the sport of canyoneering (or repelling). Some of us on the trip were afraid of heights and Eric made everyone feel safe and comfortable. The only drawback was the long hike through the sand back... More
