St. George, UT

Water Fun in the Desert Sun

The Southwest is often imagined as desert and cacti. There's so much more. Let's go explore swimming holes, hot springs, and reservoirs hosted on Mars.

There is a St. George adventure during Spring '23 and Fall '23. The Itineraries are same.

Expectation

Let me begin by saying, you do not need to have any experience adventuring in order to join. Everyone will receive a preparation and packing guide. This trip won't be technical at all. 

 

This will be a different vibe than the other adventures I guide. This will be more chill but fully immersed in water vibes. If you are not a swimmer or comfortable with wearing a life vest regularly, you should not come. 

We will be in St. George, Utah which is 2 hours from Las Vegas. It's centrally located to the Mars-like reservoir, natural hot springs, Pink Coral Sand dunes, Bryce Canyon, and other out of this world vibes we will be experiencing for this week.

If you get motion sick, I would not recommend joining us.

Itinerary

Monday, May 22/Sept. 11

Day 1 - Arrive. Oh, hi!

This first day we will arrive into Vegas by 3pm and head to St. George, UT just 2 hours away. We'll have dinner delivered so we can rest and get to know each other at the Airbnb.

Tuesday, May 23/Sept. 12

Day 2 - Coral Pink Sand Dunes & Toquerville Waterfall/ Swimming Hole

Since Coral Pink sands can get extremely hot by mid morning, we will plan to arrive early morning after sunrise. We'll play on the sand, get some cool shots in then get in some ATV's to legit explore the dunes. We'll be here till lunch then head to the town of Toquerville where we'll overland to an incredible waterfall and swimming hole. 

Wednesday, May 24/ Sept. 13

Day 3 - Hot Springs, Bryce Canyon, & Hiking Waterfalls

This is an early day. We will get to the hot springs by sunset because they can get crowded early since they are naturally occuring. We will then explore a commercial hot spring next so you can experience both types of hot springs. From here, we'll grab lunch on the way to Bryce Canyon's magical landscape. On the way home from exploring Bryce Canyon we'll hike a waterfall hidden within a canyon.​

Thursday, May 25/ Sept. 14

Day 4 - Swimming on Mars

Sand Hollow was such an incredible surprise I experienced in 2020. We'll ease into this day having breakfast before heading to the reservoir to swim, cliff dive and paddle board till lunch. We'll do lunch and probably rest some because we'll head back to Sand Hollow to rent a boat and jet skis play for a couple hours before watching the sunset on the water.​

Friday, May 26/ Sept. 15

Day 5 - Brunch then Bye

We'll have something fun and delicious for brunch then head back to Vegas for everyone to leave. Plan to leave out after 1pm PST.
