unWine’d & Dine Jet Boat Tour Details

Your trip begins at the Canyonlands by Night and Day private dock (click for a map) two miles north of Moab, Utah, and just north of the Colorado River. As you step aboard the Moab Queen II, a friendly bartender will hand you your choice of wine, beer, water, or a soft drink.

Once everyone is aboard, the boat captain will turn on the motors and slowly glide the large open boat up river. The section of the river you’ll travel is calm and tranquil, with ample opportunities to take photos of the beautiful red rocks surrounding you. After guiding the boat to a shady spot where there is a natural acoustic cliff wall, the captain will turn off the engine and you can enjoy live western entertainment. The entertainment continues as you drift back to our dock where a cowboy-style Dutch Oven dinner is waiting for you. Total trip distance is about 4 miles round trip. Two drinks are included in the price per ticket. Guests 21 and older with a valid ID have the option of having wine, or beer. Other non-alcoholic beverages are available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click question to disclose response.

How many people fit on the boat?

Up to 80 people fit on the Moab Queen II, which features stadium seating.

Can I use my camera?

Yes! It’s the ideal tour for photos!

Can I take the jet boat tour without the dinner?

Nope, you’ll need to have some food with your drinks in order to comply with state alcohol consumption and service laws.

Can I bring my child(ren)?

Absolutely, as long as they are over the age of 4.

Please note: Only guests who can provide a valid ID proving they are over the age of 21 will be served alcoholic drinks.

Is there a bathroom on board?

Yes, but it is for emergencies only.

Will I get wet?

No, not at all.

What should I wear?

Dress is casual and you may wish to bring a light jacket; it does get cool in the evenings. If you get cold easily, you should consider long pants.

Do you go in all types of weather?

No, the Moab Queen II is an open boat so guests are able to see high up the canyon walls. It’s very common at certain times of the year for thunderstorms to build near sunset and then pass quickly. In fact, it helps cool the temperature of the canyon.

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 hand rails on both sides.

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 age is 4.

Last-minute decision to check out this attraction. The people on the phone were very pleasant and helpful. Decided to take the unWine’d and Dine river cruise. It was a late evening, 1-1/2 hour cruise on the Colorado River. It was calm, gliding along the river. You could have wine, beer or soda on the cruise. The entertainment was great! There was a cowboy, named Sand, singing original songs with his guitar and then there was Evan. He played Indian type flutes that made me feel very spiritual. It was very calming, I could have listened to it all night. When we got back to the dock, there was a buffet dinner waiting for us!
