Lake Powell Canyon Adventure Boat Tour

By Alley Keosheyan / September 1, 2017

You wouldn’t to go Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower; or visit San Francisco without driving over the Golden Gate Bridge. Take a trip to London without seeing Big Ben? What would be the point? So why would you go to Page, Arizona and leave Lake Powell off your agenda? If you thought it was because a Lake Powell boat would eat up the better part of a day, think again!  

On Lake Powell Resort & Marina’s Canyon Adventure Boat Tour, you’ll get an in-depth, close-up view of the attraction that first put Page, AZ on the map, without making a big dent in any of your vacation days. Lake Powell is the second-largest man-made lake in the United States, and one of the American Southwest’s most iconic and controversial waterways. Your Coast Guard Certified tour boat captain will transport you in safety and comfort amid stunning natural scenery and historic man-made landmarks, including:

  • Glen Canyon Dam, the concrete arch dam responsible for the formation of Lake Powell
  • The waterside of Antelope Canyon, a tributary of the Colorado River whose landside is world-famous for its slot canyons
  • Navajo Canyon, whose towering red rock walls coated in ancient desert varnish make a striking contrast with the azure waters of Lake Powell
  • 50/50 Wall, a unique formation where the height of the rock wall above you is equivalent to the depth of the water below you

In just 2.5 hours* you can see all that, and be back on shore in plenty of time to do more sightseeing, including the Horseshoe Bend Overlook, slot canyon tours, airplane tours, helicopter flights, or one of several easy but scenic hikes in the area. Space is limited, so book your seats today!

Tour runs April 1st – October 31st with departures at 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM Mountain Standard Time. Operation of tours may be contingent on favorable weather conditions and a minimum of 15 passengers.

Coffee, lemonade and water are provided on the tour boat. You are welcome to bring a reasonable amount of your own food or preferred beverages with you. 

*Tour length may vary depending on Lake Powell’s water level. Check-in is required at the Lake Powell Resort & Marina Boat Tour Desk (in the main lobby of the hotel) 30 minutes prior to departure. Allow 30 minutes to travel from Page to Lake Powell Resort and 30 minutes to travel back to town. Lake Powell Resort & Marina is located within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, which is a Federal Fee Area.
