Out of stock
We are ALL booked for 2022, sorry. You can sign up to be notified when we open booking for 2023 at this page/link: 2023 Notification List
Please contact us via email if you’d like more information about any of this.
Coming in 2023: We’re scaling up to accommodate groups of nine or ten people, among three guest rooms for longer 4 day/4 night adventures! You’ll have options to book a room for your group (2 to 4 people), or travel solo and stay dorm style with other bug lovers in bunk bed settings. As we open up booking again, we’ll provide more information about the rooms.
New for 2023, we’ll be offering weeks for adults-only and then certain weeks for families with children (14 and under) in an effort to make everybody more comfortable about the “vibe.”
Booking may open for 2023 around Halloween of 2022. Maybe sooner? We are considering doing some day adventures for people in the fall and winter of 2022. Contact us if you’d like to know more about that.
What to expect in Monsoon season of 2023, July and August…
Daytime activities to include guided explorations at your comfort level in multiple locations as we visit nearby Sky Islands including the Santa Rita Mountains, the Huachuca Mountains, and Mount Lemmon in the Santa Catalina Mountains (weather dependent). Drive time to each is 30 to 90 minutes. Our journeys will take us through many different life zones and habitats which host a wide variety of insects and other wildlife, plants and geological features.
And then at night we go black lighting which is demonstrated in the video at the bottom of this page. While the sheets and lights are running we wander a bit to look for things not attracted to the lights.
Each day and night we’ll visit new locales to maximize the diversity of organisms we encounter, and the memories you take home!
The adventure begins when you arrive. We do offer a pick up service for people arriving at the Tucson airport which is about 45 minutes away from our property. Some people will arrive in their own cars, and others will rent cars.
Days are generally structured around meals.
Breakfast at around 8:00 AM. Leave for day adventures at around 9 AM. Lunch in the field. Return to property at around 3:30 PM. Dinner at 4:15 PM. Depart for night adventures at 5 PM. Return from night adventures at around 10:30 PM to Midnight. Individual guests are welcome to sit out any leg of the adventure if they need a break or just want to hang back and enjoy the property. We are rarely gone from the property more than 6 hours at a time, and partly for your comfort.
A few simple things to know:
After you make your purchase we will contact you to plan the finer details of arrival, departure and everything in between. We will send a list of everything you will want to bring (we have extra nets, containers, head lamps). You will be asked to review and sign waiver of liability forms for each attending person and all children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Rus Wilson from Aquarimax Pets came down in the summer of 2021 and documented his adventure with us in three videos. The first video appears below and the others are on his YouTube Channel.
