#1 Nighttime Activity in Kanab.
Star Party made our trip memorable
My pal and I were spending a night in Kanab when we came across a postcard at a local restaurant for a star party, which sounded quite interesting. We texted the number on the card and received a quick response and shuttle pickup within a couple of hours from inquiry. I give them an A++ for the short notice and easy accommodation alone!
Rick and Gale are very knowledgeable and passionate about stars. They gave us a quick overview of the area and handed us binoculars to begin our star journey. We learned about the different types of stars, the constellations and got to view the full moon, the rings of Saturn, and the Milky Way through their telescope. Hanging out with these two was a real treat and added something special to our road trip. I can't wait to point out Andromeda, Saturn and Cassiopeia to all of my star gazing friends!
Stunning Star Party!
Had a wonderful time with Rick and Gale in Kanab. My wife and I were in Kanab for a weekend and we were looking for activities to do in town. We read about the star party in our hotel and booked it at 9 pm for a 12 am slot. Totally loved the experience.
Sky in southern Utah is light pollution free and you can see our milky way with naked eyes. Rick and Gale gave us a very informative talk on night sky. They also make these sessions way more fun by sharing myths and legends surrounding the constellations and stars in the sky. Also, they have a very cool telescope that showed us images of the storms on Jupiter's surface. Overall, a fun filled activity to do in Kanab and I highly recommend it to everyone visiting Kanab.
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER!
Your visit to Kanab is not complete without this! This was a mind-blowing experience.
These folks were super nice and very knowledgeable. We all had a great time during this tour. We each were loaned a pair of binoculars, and there was a telescope for viewing planets and star systems. This was a wonderful evening and would definitely do it again!
Informative and mind boggling! Left us in awe! My teenage daughter didn't want to go at first, then was so thrilled that she did. Thanks to Rick and Gayle for a mind-opening experience.
Great experience to watch stars with great music and friendly and helpful guidence. Don't be afraid if you do not have any experience of star gazing. Rick and Gale have all the patience and knowldwge to lead you through the amzing tour. Definately #1 night time activity in Kanab.
Highlight of our Road Trip
We called Kanab Creek Tours at short notice to see if they could take us out that same night, luckily they could and we had a great time. It was cold, being November, but we were determined to take advantage of the dark skies here. We were collected from our hotel and taken to their private canyon, we felt safe. Rick and Gail were great hosts, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and, most importantly, patient with these two novices. We learnt a lot, had fun and came away with a renewed passion for the cosmos, a memorable evening, thank you Gail and Rick.
Amazing night sky viewing-a MUST DO for city dwellers.
Southern Utah is a great place for night sky viewing. We could see tons of stars from our rental, but wanted a deeper experience.
We booked the tour 2 nights in advance. Rick is very personable, and made us feel valued and welcomed. The tour shuttle is comfortable-we met Rick at the visitor's center and he drove us a very short distance north of town to their property. He provided excellent binoculars for each of us, plus one set of very high-powered binocs to share. He used a fantastic laser pointer that was a huge help in locating astronomical features. He played relaxing music in the background, and provided wonderful information on the universe, mythology, and prehistoric peoples of southern Utah. I thought it was worth every penny-it's a don't miss, but most especially if you live in a highly-populated area. You will rarely see a sky like this anywhere else.
The stargazing tour blew my mind
Rick and Gale were fantastic hosts and incredibly friendly. Rick was really helpful in getting the tour arranged and he and his wife Gale were kind enough to take me on the tour despite it being just me. They have their own private land and a really nice tour shuttle which they pick you up in. With Kanab being 3 on the Bortle scale, once your eyes have adjusted it is excellent for stargazing.
They play some nice relaxing music in the background and have excellent knowledge on the constellations and the cosmos. They have laser pens which points everything out with incredible accuracy. This was one of the best night skies I have ever seen and through the telescopes they have WOW! The galactic core of the milky way stretches right across the sky and through the optics, all the stars you could see = mind blown!! The tour lasted about an hour and fifteen and I seriously could not recommend this more. If I had been there another night I would have done it again. Cost was $35 per person which represented excellent value.
An amazing time seeing the stars
My wife and i were searching for an activity in Kanab after a day at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and we came across this tour. I called and got Rick who was extremely helpful booking the tour. We were picked up at our hotel and were taken to a location where the stars just came alive. Being from the east coast, in an area with much light pollution, this was just amazing. Rick also did the tour and was very knowledgeable. We will never look at he night sky the same way again.
The tour was not too long, just right. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
The brilliance of the night sky was amazing
This tour was great for our friends and family. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the stars and constellations. We learned a lot. The night sky was amazingly beautiful and the tour was not too long for our teenagers to enjoy. It was like you could almost reach up and touch the stars and the milky way.. Would highly recommend for other visitors.
