COVID-19 Changes to Our Schedule


Thank you for your interest in our adventures. We appreciate you checking in with us as we all deal with this uncertain future.

For sure we would all love a little escape from the headlines, and the desert can certainly work its magic that way. But the Covid-19 crisis has warranted that we suspend our schedule indefinitely. This will be at least until the governor’s order is lifted and we know that we can offer our excursions in a fun and safe manner once more.

We will, of course, continue to monitor the situation with guidance from the authorities and update this notice accordingly. If it seems that the situation is easing, we will then post a tentative schedule of tours. Initially, we may make it for phone-in reservations only. This way your card is not charged up front, but you can be on the calendar (with fingers crossed) until the date approaches. Please fee free to call or email us with any questions: 760-767-1232. We would love to hear from you.

And please keep in touch. We hope that we will see you on the other side of this crisis to share some great times. After weeks and months of sheltering at home, perhaps desert tour companies will then be considered an “essential service.” 🙂 Until then, from all of us, take care of yourselves and be safe.
