Water Sports

You may be among the many people who ask “are there any places to swim here?” We may be in a desert but there are actually plenty of opportunities to play in the water. The Virgin River and the Santa Clara River both flow through the area and are both dammed at a few points, creating some small, but very fun reservoirs that are great for fishing, boating, jet skiing, or just swimming around. A common local sport, skimboarding, can be done in the rivers themselves, in less-frequented spots. Please follow the links below to learn more about these fun water sports available in the Saint George area and where you can practice them.
