July is the peak of summer in Phoenix, which leaves residents and tourists alike searching for ways to keep cool in the desert. While some people will turn to a neighborhood pool or indoor air conditioning for relief, real Arizona adventurers know the only way to cool off in summer is to head outdoors! We offer a variety of tours and rentals designed to keep you cool and show off the best Phoenix has to offer this summer. Here are our recommendations for outdoor fun – minus the sun:

Guided Jet Ski Tour
It’s easy to cool off on the water with our guided Jet Ski tours perfect for Phoenix residents and visitors. This two-hour adventure is a great way to explore old Waddell dam and new Waddell dam as your guide explains the long history behind these structures. Spot native plant life along the shore and maybe even catch a glimpse of javelinas or bald eagles who have stopped at the water’s edge for a drink. Enjoy 30 minutes of free ride time at Balance Rock Island and feel the spray of the water in your hair as you cool off.

Know Before You Go:

  • Tours are two hours
  • Lifejackets are required on all watercraft
  • Fuel is included
  • One or two-person Jet Skis available

Guided Paddle Board Tour
Paddle board tours are a great way to work your core and get a leisurely view of Lake Pleasant at the same time. Our guides will take you to areas of the lake you simply can’t get to by boat. These are naturally beautiful, unspoiled scenic destinations you and your family will love. Even first-time paddle boarders will enjoy this adventure as they learn a new skill and experience the stunning scenery at the old and new Waddell dams.

Know Before You Go:

  • Tours are two hours (longer by request)
  • Lifejackets are required on all watercraft

Sunset ATV/UTV Tour
Arizonans love dusk in the desert. It’s the only time when the summer heat dissipates and residents can venture outside to view stunning sunsets with beautiful pink and orange hues painted into the sky. Our off-road vehicles allow you to ride out into the horizon, cross a river, explore one of Arizona’s notorious turquoise mines, and then explore real Indian ruins from many years ago. This breathtaking desert experience can be yours with our sunset ATV and UTV tours. There is no better way to see Phoenix this summer!

Know Before You Go:

  • Tours are two hours
  • Choose from single person ATVs or two to four passenger UTVs

There’s more than one way to cool off this summer and Arizona Outdoor Fun has them all! Pick your own adventure or pair multiple adventures together for a bigger and better desert experience. Genuine

Western shooting adventures are available as add-ons to enhance any booking. Don’t stay inside this summer. Get outside and cool off with our thrilling adventures that will make your day – and help you keep cool. Contact us today for more information.

Our customers face two tough decisions: 1) which of our amazing adventures to choose and 2) how to get more desert fun for their money. These are difficult decisions, especially when each activity in our catalog is just as appealing as the next! Our guided Lake Pleasant tours are most popular in the summer, but ATV and UTV tours remain popular year-round due to the availability of morning and evening rides. Our team has devised a few ways to get the best of our services in one convenient full-day package.

Benefits of choosing an all-day package include the ability to try two or more activities in one day even if you want both water and land adventures. You will also receive a full meal to help fuel your day. Just imagine: you could go from riding an ATV around the scenic desert vistas to cooling off on a guided Jet Ski tour in the same day with all your friends in tow.

Choose from:

Package A

  • 2-Hour ATV Day Tour
  • Lunch
  • Guided Jet Ski Tour

Package B

  • Guided 2-Hour Jet Ski Tour
  • Dinner
  • 2-Hour Guided UTV Tour

Package C

  • 2-Hour Guided UTV Tour
  • Lunch
  • Shooting Adventure
  • 2-Hour Sunset ATV Tour

This is a great way to show guests just how versatile the Arizona desert can really be! After all, we’re a lot more than just a sprawling desert with a few cacti; our guides will point out rare plants and animals along your tour. Since you have the whole day, you are twice as likely to see local deer, javelina, peregrine falcons, and a wide variety of lizards darting between sagebrush bushes. Snap a few photos to take home as souvenirs and revisit your western excursions over and over again!

Please note that all day-long tours require a two-person minimum to book and participants must be at least 16-years of age, five-feet tall, and weigh 100-pounds or more. Required attire includes closed-toe shoes and prohibits dresses or skirts for safety reasons. Plan eight hours for each full-day adventure and don’t worry about packing safety gear or water. We have all that waiting for you at our destination!
