Jet Boat Tours

Scenic jet boat cruise_4292682675_lImagine yourself floating down the legendary Colorado River. A shade canopy and breeze keeps you cool in spite of desert heat. You are surrounded by red sandstone cliffs on either side of the river.

Occasionally, a blue heron rises in slow motion from the water, searching for today’s catch. You don’t have a care in the world other than enjoying the beautiful world around you because you are in the company of Tag-A-Long Expeditions traveling in a sturdy river boat, the Colorado Explorer.

These boats are designed for people who want to tour the river on calm water, not get wet, remain comfortable, but see all there is to see of Canyonlands National Park from the perspective of a voyage down the river. We promise a safe, dry, comfortable, cool, scenic ride on one of America’s great rivers.
