Dutch oven dinner and evening river cruise with lights

Okay, it sounds a little hokey, but it could be lovely watching the stars from the boat. Anyone been on this nighttime jet boat ride on the Colorado and recommend it or not?

A disclaimer first; we've never done this and have no intention of ever doing it. We've spoken to many who have and hokey is one word; tacky, cheesy, trite and kitsch are others. Admittedly no one has said rip off.

With many thousands of watts lighting the cliffs and canyon walls don't expect to see many stars. To really see stars your eyes need to adapt to the darkness not be overwhelmed by artificial lighting.

Save your money. Hike hard, bike hard, play hard in the daylight. Eat well at night and rest.

Thank you both! I kind of had a gut feeling this would be hokey--I'm grateful you confirmed it--the lighted up rocks should have tipped me off! We'll do the day or sunset run and take advantage of natural light!

Family members did the evening river cruise and wanted their money back - really awful. Much better ways to spend your time and money.

Yes, we just returned from our Moab Adventure trip. We did this our last night. And while it definately is a little hokey & not the highlight of our trip, we did enjoy it. The people that run it are very cute & friendly. Dee, boat captain & guide, is funny. If you decide to do it bring a light jacket as they recommend because believe it or not it was chilly.
