Sunset Jet Boat & Sound and Light Show Package Tours

Sunset Jet Boat & Sound and Light Show Combo Tour of Moab’s Color

If you would like to experience two of the best water tours in the Moab area, look no further than the Sunset Jet Boat & Sound and Light show package tour combo. This combination package saves you money and includes both the wonderful Sunset Jet Boat Tour and the Sound and Light Show with Dinner Tour of the Colorado River.

On the Sunset Jet Boat portion of the excursion, you’ll cruise down river approximately 20 miles taking in amazing sights and wonders. You’ll return to our dock in time for the cowboy-style Dutch Oven dinner, and then head out for the Sound and Light Show boat tour.

The tours are opposite in both sights and direction.

Canyonlands by Night & Day combo tours are two individual trips combined together in the same day to save you money!


Sunset Jet Boat & Sound and Light Show Combo Tour Details

The photo opportunities are endless on the Sunset Jet Boat Tour of the Colorado River as you glide along a calm-water section experiencing approximately 20 miles of amazing sights and wonders. The Sunset Jet Boat Tour is great for photography—the canyon walls come to life with the sunset. Arches and petroglyphs are just a few of the hidden gems along the way.

You’ll return to our dock in time for the cowboy-style Dutch Oven dinner followed by the Sound and Light Show. You’ll cruise slowly up the Colorado River as our knowledgeable guide calls your attention to interesting points along the way as the sky darkens. Once you reach the turnaround point, the formal part of the tour begins and 40,000 watts of illumination are cast onto the canyon walls.

The lights move across the rocks and through the trees to create shadows on the canyon walls bringing life the recorded stories of the Native Americans, Catholic conquistadors, and Mormon pioneers. The tour ends as we return to our private dock.

The tours are completely opposite in both sights and direction.


Adult (ages 13 and up): $196.20

Youth (ages 4 – 12): $178.20

The sunset jet boat ride was a highlight of Moab. This is a relatively large boat seating ~ 40 people. If you picture a high speed jet boat doing flat spins in the river this is not the boat or the trip. Leaving the dock on the north end of Moab it heads down the Colorado River. The highlight of the trip is the guide. We were extremely lucky ours was a local, and the color he added made the trip.

As you head down river you see pictographs, climbers, jeep trails, arches, and the sheer cliffs of this area. We had clouds come in so not much of a sunset, but we did see single and double rainbows. This isn’t a scary thrill ride and is suitable for all ages. Enough high speed turns to make it interesting!
