Imagine standing high above a vast canyon, soaking up all the natural beauty that surrounds you. Then you jump off the cliff you’re standing on and soar through the air to the ground below. This exhilarating sport is not for the faint of heart. If you want to experience a tandem jump, the desert terrain of Moab, Utah is the spot. It’s the only place in the U.S. right now where one can try the sport of B.A.S.E. jumping without needing the certified training.
There are two areas around Moab that are ideal. Mineral Canyon has pretty easy access and makes for a good location to do the tandem. Parriott Mesa is harder to get to, requiring a 2-hour hike in order to reach the launching cliff, but the vistas are worth the effort.
If you want to try this extreme sport, then check out Moab Base Adventures. They’ll be happy to jump off a cliff with you.
