"Rappelled 120′ Off an Arch!"

No issues in getting activities set up! Our guide for the Ephedras Grotto Canyoneering trip was Chris. He was knowledgeable in all aspects, safety was a high priority, still was able to keep things fun and took an interest in those he was leading! My husband and I had such a great time. This is an awesome memory we get to share together! -Scott, Virginia

Canyoneering Adventure

5

My wife and I enjoyed our canyoneering adventure with our guides - Hyrum and Jason. We are both in our 50s and are adventurous but this was our first time Canyoneering. Before leaving the facility to head to the trail, we were provided safety instructions and an overview of how to control your rate of descent while rappelling. We were then driven into the starting location within the Salt Flats and hiked about a mile to our first drop which was indicated as about 90 ft. Again there was a review of the safety aspects before we each started down. Although our adrenaline was pumping, at no time did we feel unsafe. Hyrum and Jason tried to put everyone at ease (there were 2 other couples with us) as they were secured into position and started their descent. After the first drop, we hiked a short distance to our next drop at Morning Glory Arch where we rappelled ~115 ft much of which was just a drop (no wall). We then hiked about 2 mi out to the pick-up point at the Grandstaff trailhead. Overall it was a thrilling experience. It may not be for everyone but if you are adventurous and like to test your limits, go for it.

Hummer and Canyoneering Were Amazing

5

We did two tours. The hummer sunset tour with our driver, Mike, was informative and funny. The drive is unbelievable and breathtaking. I would highly recommend it. Our Canyoneering guide was Cord and he too was very informative and frinedly--we hiked for a bit before we did the repelling. I was a bit nervous but Cord explained everything in a way that calmed my fears. I am so glad I got to do it and would recommend this to the more adventurous hikers.

Our Moab Canyoneering trip was so fun. The guides not only knew how to make the experience safe, but they also knew a lot about the area, sharing interesting facts and history. I can't wait to try canyoneering again sometime.

Best in Moab Canyoneering

Before we left for our Ephedras Grotto Canyoneering Trip. The Moab Adventure Center sent us solid information and suggested gear/materials to bring along. Our guide, Chris, was absolutely fantastic, from exhibiting a fantastic knowledge of the area to cracking jokes with the crew, we could not have asked for a better guide. Rappelling was an unforgettable experience and the sites of the trip were amazing.

Canyoneering with Moab Adventure Center

5

My husband and I had a canyoneering adventure in July, 2012. The guides made the experience unforgettable. Their knowledge of the area and expertise in rappelling made the tour very informative, as well as safe, but exciting at the same time. We had a great time!

What an AWESOME experience! From the time that we booked through Moab Adventure Center, to hiking up the trail with our guides, Matt and Olivia, this experience was the best! The level of professionalism of everyone involved, to the experience itself, we thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would book again through the Adventure Center. Thank you for making our first canyoneering experience an awesome one!

Even old guys can rappel

5

I had been wanting to rappel in canyons for some time and finally got the chance in Moab. I’m 68 and had a grand time doing the long drops into two pools of water and the great rappel off the arch. It was fun hearing the hikers below talking about us. JC (the guide) pointed out lots of things and helped with some simple rock climbing.

Rappelling off Moab Arches

5

Gaar was an excellent guide on the Ephedra’s Grotto Canyoneering. He explained the safety precautions he was taking in preparing for our rappels and talked each of us through the experience. As well, Gaar seemed to have much knowledge with the nature that surrounded us. I much appreciated the added information he shared during the hikes to and from the rappels. It was my first but not my last try at rappelling!
