Hidden Canyon Kayak Antelope Canyon Tour

By Alley Keosheyan / September 5, 2017

#YOLO – it stands for “You Only Live Once.” So why would you tour the waterside of Antelope Canyon shoulder-to-shoulder with a boatload of strangers? Experience the power and majesty of Antelope Canyon as it joins with Lake Powell in a way that only a select few visitors will share, with Hidden Canyon Kayak Tours!

On Hidden Canyon Kayak’s Antelope Canyon Tour, you’ll glide between red sandstone walls towering high above tranquil morning waters, inching closer and closer together as you paddle gently and quietly toward the canyon’s land side. You needn’t have any previous kayaking experience to take part. Hidden Canyon Kayak’s licensed guides will teach you how to pilot your watercraft in safety and confidence, and provide all the equipment you need to keep your personal belongings safe and dry. Depending on Lake Powell’s water level, you’ll take a simple hike to where the slot canyon portion of Antelope Canyon begins. Your guide will take keepsake photos of you and your tour group at no extra charge! Group sizes are deliberately limited for more personalized service, so book your seats today, or you may be overcome by a bad case of FOMO.

Your tour price includes:

  • Kayak (2-person models will be used unless previous alternate arrangements are made)
  • Paddles
  • Life jackets
  • Snacks
  • Refillable water
  • Dry bags and boxes

Tour duration: 3-4 hours, depending on water level of Lake Powell

Tour schedules:

February 15th – April 30th: 7:30 – 11:30 AM

May 1st – September 14th: 6:30 – 10:30 AM and 7:30 – 11:30 AM

September 15th – October 31st: 7:30 – 11:30 AM

All times are Mountain Standard Time

Tours depart from from Antelope Point Marina Public Launch Ramp, which is about 12 miles (19.3 kilometers) from Downtown Page. Your kayak tour guide will meet you by the bathroom at the entrance to the parking lot. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to departure time. Antelope Point Marina is located in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, which is a Federal Fee Area.

Tours require a minimum of 2 passengers to guarantee operation and are contingent on favorable weather conditions.

Hi, my sister and I are planning a trip to Page and Antelope Canyon. We are definitely interested in the Kayaking tour but I’m wondering, will we see all of Lower Antelope Canyon the same as we would with one of the foot tours? We were looking at the Hidden Canyon Kayak tour (4 hours). Or would we need to schedule a foot tour in addition to the Kayak tour? We want to see as much as we can without having an insanely packed day. We are driving in the evening prior and staying the night of – May 10th would be our outing day. Any recommendations of what all to squeeze into the day?

    Hi Shannon,
    The scenery on the kayak tour of Antelope Canyon and the walking tour of Lower Antelope Canyon are completely different. That’s not to say that they’re not both worthwhile, but for the “classic” slot canyon scenery that has been made so famous in pictures and postcards, you’ll need to do the walking/foot tour. The perspective on the kayak tour is of the waterside of the canyon, where it connects with Lake Powell.
    As for what else you should try and see, the Horseshoe Bend Overlook is a definite must. Depending on your itinerary, you might hit that on the way into town if you’re coming in from the Grand Canyon, or on your way out of town if you’re heading that way after leaving Page.
    Other sites worth visiting include but are not limited to the Glen Canyon Dam and Steel Arch Bridge, the John Wesley Powell Memorial Museum, the “New” Wave, the White House Overlook, Lakeshore Drive and Lake Powell Resort.
    Good luck and have a safe trip!

Do you have a map of the area that the tour traverses? Do you kayak up the canyon and back down?

    Alley Keosheyan - March 25, 2018

    Hello and thank you for visiting our site. Below is an approximate map of the area covered on the Hidden Canyon Kayak Antelope Canyon Tour. Note that Antelope Point Marina is included, since that’s where you would meet your guide. And yes, you kayak a ways up the canyon, then back down. For more detailed information, or to book your tour, visit Hidden Canyon Kayak Tours or call (928) 660-1836

    Hope that helps and that you have a wonderful trip!

how long is one tour in hours? I will stay in july with two other families.
Kind regards, Thomas

    Hi Thomas,
    The Antelope Hidden Canyon Kayak tour runs between 3-4 hours depending on the water level of Lake Powell and how much (or little) hiking it allows for.
    Keep in mind that July is peak of summer, therefore daytime temperatures will be very hot. For maximum comfort and personal safety, taking this tour in the morning is strongly recommended.
    Hope that helps! Book your Antelope Hidden Canyon Kayak tour now.

What company does these tours? We are going down Feb 19th and all we can find companies don’t start tours until March.

    Alley Keosheyan - February 2, 2018

    Hi Beth,
    Unfortunately you won’t be able to take part in a kayak tour in February. It’s simply too cold to be on the water and be comfortable.
    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! 🙁
