About This Experience

General Information hide

Take a journey through a natural palm oasis, spectacular box and slot canyons, and an ancient fossil bed as your jeep winds its way through the incredible maze created by the San Andreas Fault on the 3½ hour San Andreas Nightwatch Adventure.

This experience is a nocturnal voyage among surreal shadows and darkness on a cooling desert landscape. Your journey begins before sunset as you explore steep-walled canyons, a natural palm oasis and the EPICENTER Earthquake Education Center.  Then, as the sun begins to set, you will witness the spectacular transition from day to night as light casts amazing shadows on the mountains, creating a depth and range of colors unseen during the day. As darkness overtakes you, the clear desert sky comes alive with stars twinkling in the heavens above. Let the knowledgeable guides point out constellations, planets and stars and learn the mythology attributed to them.

So whether you are looking for a unique way to explore the Fault, an exciting night out, or a fun gift for an adventurere, this San Andreas Stargazing Tour is perfect!
