Colorado River Jetboat - Dinner & Night Show

For a night to remember and the finishing touch on a perfect day, come along and enjoy Cowboy-style Dutch Oven dinner and a slow moving evening boat ride on the Colorado River. This is by far one of the most unique sound and light shows in the world and has been hailed by many as the “highlight of our vacation.” The canyonlands area is unlike any other area in the world making this boat ride one of the most unique features in the world.

The evening begins with a Dutch Oven dinner served on the banks of the Colorado River. After an hour of dinner, guests load a flat-bottomed jetboat named the Moab Queen II and head up river with a guide at the front of the boat pointing out things of interest. Once the boat has reached the turn around spot, the formal part of the evening begins with 40,000 watts of light illuminating the canyon walls and bring them to life. Stories about the formation, creation and history of the area are illustrated with cowboy and Indian tales. The show is choreographed with lights, sounds, music and narration as you drift back to the dock.

We take a private boat tour of Venice, visit two of Palladio's magnificent villas and explore old Marostica, still surrounded by its ancient walls.

In the mountain resort of Asiago we taste the famous cheese; in Bassano we sample grappa at the Nardini distillery and cross the wooden Palladian bridge, Ponte degli Alpini.
