Canyonlands by Night Dinner & Light Show

For a night to remember and the finishing touch on a perfect day, come along and enjoy Cowboy-style Dutch Oven dinner and a slow moving evening boat ride on the Colorado River. This is by far one of the most unique sound and light shows in the world and has been hailed by many as the “highlight of our vacation.” The canyonlands area is unlike any other area in the world making this boat ride one of the most unique features in the world.

The evening begins with a Dutch Oven dinner served in the dining room, overlooking the Colorado River. After an hour of dinner, guests load a flat-bottomed jetboat named the Moab Queen II and head up river with a guide at the front of the boat pointing out things of interest. Once the boat has reached the turn around spot, the formal part of the evening begins with 40,000 watts of light illuminating the canyon walls and bring them to life. Stories about the formation, creation and history of the area are illustrated with cowboy and Indian tales. The show is choreographed with lights, sounds, music and narration as you drift back to the dock.

Evening jetboat tours will meet at 1861 N Highway 191, Moab, UT 15 minutes prior to departure. Call ahead for exact times.

Reviews for Canyonlands by Night Tour

The Stars at Night, are Big and Bright, Deep in the Heart of Moab!

What an incredible evening! The Dinner and Night show tour was the perfect choice for our party of eight. From the beginning of the evening to the end, this package deal is finely tuned. We were greeted immediately upon arrival by happy, upbeat staff. After dinner came the river ride with our guide who was so pleasant, knowledgeable, and funny. The next part of the tour was nothing less than spectacular….and perfectly timed. Narration and music echo through the canyon in perfect harmony, then lighting of the canyon walls and times of silence for reflection. Lastly, the "piece de resistance", God's lighting of the sky. Awesome! Thank you!

A Night on Colorado River Moab, Utah

We went on the Jetboat- Dinner and Night Show. Our guide was very informative and friendly. We learned a lot about the history of Moab. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Dinner was great. It was the best meal we had in Moab. Star gazing was amazing on the river after dark.
