Sound and Light Show Jet Boat Tours Featured in
One of the best things to do in Moab and Canyonlands National Park is the Sound and Light Show Jet Boat Tours operated by Canyonlands by Night and Day. Flat-bottomed boat cruises feature some of the most impressive sound and light shows in the world. You can take a boat ride all year through, but tours with a dinner option run only from March through October, weather permitting.
Your memorable adventure starts at Colorado Riverside, 2 miles (3 km) north of Moab. Expect a feast on the exclusive cowboy-style Dutch oven dinner with a captivating view of the Colorado River. The dishes on the menu are vegetarian friendly, except the items containing meats.
After the meal, full and happy, you are welcome aboard the jet boat. The crew heads up the river with a guide who knows how to kindle imagination. The most fun part begins after sunset with a fascinating narration to the old-fashioned light show. About 40,000 watts light up the canyon walls while you listen to the history of the canyon and its first settlers, including Native Americans, Catholic conquistadors, and Mormon pioneers.
If you would rather not listen to any stories referring to God and religion, the Sunset Jet Boat or a Daytime Jet Boat Tour could work better for you.
