Spin & Splash Jet Boat Tour Details

The Spin & Splash Jet Boat Tour adventure begins at the Canyonlands by Night and Day riverside location (click for a map) two miles north of Moab, just north of the Colorado River. Once you board the boat named the “Nitro Spin King”, you’ll throttle up river, filled with beautiful red rock cliffs above. While you’re on the trip your guide will play awesome music to amp up the trip.  You’ll speed up river towards some of the Colorado River’s finest rapids for some fun splash downs. Just like the name states, there’s plenty of spinning and splashing in this epic trip.  The Spin & Splash jet boat travels approximately 24 miles round trip while on the water.  The tour departs several times a day, but does require a minimum number of guests per trip. You can call one of our friendly reservationists at 435-259-5261 to inquire about a certain date.

Please Note: Due to ever changing river conditions, the boat may need to take alternative routes for safety. The boat may go down river from our location to help add excitement and fun to your boat ride.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click question to disclose response

Can I use my camera?

Yes, but we recommend having protection for it, because you will get wet!

How many people fit on the boat?

The Nitro Spin King can hold 20 people.

Will this boat spin and throw me side to side?

Yes, the boat spins, but the G force keeps you safe inside the boat. The boat doesn’t necessarily throw you side to side, but glides along the river. During the rapids section the boat does bounce.

Is there a bathroom?

No, but we do provide restrooms at our location, which you can use before and after the trip.

Will I get wet?

YES! This wet & wild adventure is designed to get you wet. Depending on the weather, you will want to dress appropriately.

Do we take a shuttle to the river?

No. Our facility is located right on the river, so you get a full trip on the river. Canyonlands by Night and Day is the only company with a private dock and can provide a trip like this.

Is there a cancelation policy?

Yes, you must cancel 48 hours prior to departure to receive a partial refund, otherwise it is non-refundable.

I have difficulty walking. Do you have an elevator?

Unfortunately no, there is no elevator.

We are at the whim of Mother Nature and deal with daily rising and sinking water levels; therefore, we have a floating dock with steps leading down to the boat. In low-water conditions there can be as many as thirty steps. In high-water conditions there can be as few as two steps. The steps have handrails on both sides. Once you get to the boat, you will have to step onto the seats to get into the boat and to your seat.

If you need extra time going up or down the stairs, we would be happy to board you first and allow you all the time you need. Please notify the office if you need special assistance. If you are still unsure if you may need help or not, please stop by our office when you get to Moab and a staff member will show you the stairs. Your safety and comfort are of our highest concern.

Can babies go?

Unfortunately no, the minimum weight is 60 lbs and the youth must also be the minimum age of 8.

“We went on the Spin and Splash tour with Roy. Our 11 year old loved it, as did we! Roy made the trip very fun! The view was breathtaking and the water splashing is perfect on a hot Moab day! They were organized and safety was a priority, which was much appreciated. We definitely suggest this trip for families with kids (must weigh 60 lbs. for safety) and adults who enjoy a great adventure!”
