Family Adventure Half-Day


Check out our Family Adventure Half-Day Video Here!

  •       We love working with families and kids and have been doing these family-oriented canyoneering days for many years. The Half-Day version compresses 50% of the opportunities our Family Adventure Day offers into a 4 hour experience. A great event for the summer mornings, or fall afternoons, still allowing you to enjoy a great hike in the park, river tubing in the summer, or a bike ride anytime of year.

    "Perhaps most important, your guides were gentle and kind, encouraging each of us to take the next step, and congratulating us for each step we took. They made it possible for me -- a somewhat nervous mother -- to relax and know we were in good hands. We were, in fact, in terrific hands, and had a fabulous day. Thank you!"  Iris Barnett
