No matter your age or experience, make sure you add this activity to your itinerary. My husband and I paired up with a father and daughter in early June for our first canyoneering excursion. Jim was assigned to our group for the Basic Canyoneering day trip. While the scenery and challenge of the canyon were nature's gift, we could not have navigated the canyon and mastered the sport of canyoneering without Jim. As a teacher, I admired Jim's attention to our safety and process-oriented instruction which he tailored to meet the needs of each one of us that day. Our well-being was ALWAYS the top priority from beginning to end. Your first step is to book the trip and then complete the paperwork in advance. When you arrive at the office the day of your excursion, you can be assured to leave yourself in the caring and capable hands of an Excursions of Escalante guide. This is a day trip of a lifetime ... breathtaking and rewarding, so bring your camera and play clothes. Belay on!
