How many rappels will we do

The number of rappels is dependent on which canyon your trip visits. All the canyons we guide involve a healthy amount of rappelling and the main objective of any canyoneering trip is to get into slot canyon and experience the landscape. Our Canyon Day Trip average is 6-8 rappels up to 120ft. If a high rappel count is a priority we can add a note to your reservation.

Will we get wet

The majority of our Day Canyoneering Trips do not  day trips do not involve going through water but it is always a possibility. Conditions change constantly.  Your guide will talk with you prior to taking you into a canyon route that involves water. We can almost always accommodate a dry trip if that is your preference. Water Canyon is likely the most dependable are for getting into water on a canyoneering trip.

Guided Trip or Instructional Course

Guided trips are the best option for most Zion National Park visitors. Instructional canyoneering courses are for participants that want to learn canyoneering systems for doing canyon routes on their own without a guide.

How high are the rappels

50ft to 120ft depending on route. The position of a rappel is more of a factor than height. Some canyons allow for rappel hight customization. We use a top belay system and can tandem if necessary. Most of our guests are first timers and that is the norm.
