Seaplane Canyoneering

CenterFocus Adventures is proud to partner with Desert Splash Seaplanes to offer you the world's only seaplane supported technical canyoneering adventure. Taking to the air with Desert Splash, you will enjoy a flight departing from Scottsdale Airport taking you past McDowell Mountains, Saguaro Lake, Canyon Lake, Apache Lake, and past the Four Peaks Wilderness before landing softly on spectacular Roosevelt Lake. Along the way you will be flying over a landscape filled with diverse wildlife, and if you are lucky you may even see the elusive Desert Bighorn Sheep.

Upon arrival you will be met by CenterFocus Adventures, a US Forest Service permitted outdoor adventure company, offering both single and multi-day adventures in one of the most pristine areas of the state. Here CenterFocus will take you through magnificent canyons, each with their own personality. Some travel hundreds of feet into the earth, some are filled with crystal clear streams, no matter what, one thing remains; it is the opportunity of a lifetime. Coming in with Desert Splash, you will see the impressive landscape that we will be hiking, swimming, rappelling, and climbing our way through while exploring this remote desert gem.

Those interested in our overnight tours, can be provided with standard or gourmet meals. Accomodations can include our exquisite Master Cabin Ranch House, standard cabins, or a tent based experience sleeping under the stars. These are some of the finest journeys in the state, and can be completely adapted to meet your needs. All seaplane adventures are conducted as individual custom tours. Our agents are excellent at understanding your needs and will provide the feedback necessary to create an ideal journey.

Honestly, how can you beat travelling through clear water-filled granite hallways, descending into grottos while rappelling on a rope through free hanging space, and travelling to and from this experience on a Cessna Jet-Prop Amphibious Seaplane with a desert lake as your runway? It simply is beyond what words can describe.
