Brian C. – Deerfield, ILWe had a great half day canyoneering trip into Entrajo Canyon. Even my wife rappelled after she swore that there wasn't a chance she would. Can't say enough about how great these guys are!
Tony L. – New Paltz, NYMy 9 year old son and I had a great time rock climbing. Herb was able to draw out the self confidence needed to do well on some difficult climbs. We wouldn't consider using any other guide service!
Sam B. – Salt Lake City, UTOur group of 4 came to Moab and wanted to do something a little different. The Pedal, Paddle, Pedal trip (Mountain Biking & Packrafting Combo) was the coolest thing we did in Moab! Unique trip, awesome guides, and spectacular scenery!
Kiran C. – Tampa, FLWe were a group of 4 who did the full day Leprechaun Canyon canyoneering and we could not have asked for a better experience. Right from the communication with Melissa (co-owner) to our guide, Herb (owner) everything was perfect.
Philip S. – San Francisco, CAWe did a 2-day canyoneering trip with a night of camping out in the wilderness. We saw some amazing remote canyons that we would never have explored without Jake's expert guiding skills. Amazing time, amazing crew!
