Lake Powell Canyon Adventure Boat Tour

By Ryan / 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 Antelope Points Boat Tours, 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

  • The waterside of Antelope Canyon, a tributary of the Colorado River whose landside is world-famous for its slot canyons 
  • Antelope Point Marina with its floating Restaurant 

In just 1 hour 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 Antelope Point Marina Boat Tour Desk (in the main lobby of the hotel) 30 minutes prior to departure. Allow 30 minutes to travel from Page to Antelope Point Marina and 30 minutes to travel back to town. Antelope Point Marina is located within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, which is a Federal Fee Area.

Hi Alley,

Would u recommend the boat tour from Wahreap Marina or Antelope Point Marina?
Other than antelope canyon and horseshoe bend, anything around Page which can be done in abt 1-2hrs?
For Upper Canyon tour, which tour company would u recommend going with?

    Hi Pamela,
    The boat tours will go to the same place, regardless of where you take it from. The Antelope Point Marina tour, by virtue of being closer to Antelope Canyon, will be shorter. Also, they run tours through some of the winter months, unlike Lake Powell Resort, which usually goes on seasonal hiatus in late October-early November. The boats used by Antelope Point Marina are also open-air, while Lake Powell Resorts’ boats are enclosed.
    Similarly for Upper Antelope Canyon, all the tour companies offer pretty much the same program, right down to the footsteps, and the penny. Therefore, there’s no need to fret over who’s best, etc. Book an Antelope Canyon tour at a time that works for you and enjoy it.
    Other activities in the Page/Lake Powell area that you might consider doing include, but aren’t limited to: Visiting the John Wesley Powell Museum and Glen Canyon Natural History Association (they’re next door to one another), the Navajo Village Heritage Center, the Glen Canyon Dam/Carl Hayden Visitors Center, the “New” Wave, the Big Water Visitors’ Center 13 miles Northwest of Page, or perhaps a walk on the Rim View Trail.
    Good luck and safe travels,
    Alley 🙂

Hi Alley,

I have 3 days trip. My family is coming from Tucson ( Univ. of Arizona) and plan to visit Antelope Valley and need to be back in LA by Monday evening. Can you give us suggestions for planning our trip. Thanks

    Hi Mel and thank you for visiting our site!
    Due to the fact that you’re starting your trip in Tucson, this is going to make for a long drive at the beginning of your trip and another long drive at the end.
    With 3 days to work with, I’d recommend driving from Tucson to Page, AZ on Day 1. It’s going to be at least a 6 hour drive, but could stretch to about 8 due to the scenic nature of the drive and inevitable sights that will pique your interest. “Must” stops on this drive include, but certainly aren’t limited to, Sedona, AZ, Wupatki/Sunset Crater National Monuments, the Cameron Trading Post, the “Cut” scenic overlook and the Horseshoe Bend Overlook.
    On Day 2, do a tour of Antelope Canyon in the morning, then start driving to Grand Canyon South Rim. The drive takes about 2.5 hours if you go direct, but here again, that rarely happens since there are many Grand Canyon viewpoints you can stop at on the way into Grand Canyon Village, the main commerce area in the park. Stay at Grand Canyon South Rim, either inside the park (GC Village) or Tusayan/GC Village South. Grand Canyon hotels
    On Day 3, start driving back to LA, which will also take you about 8 hours. If you can possibly free up another day, you might break up the drive to LA in Las Vegas, Laughlin or Bullhead City.

    Good luck and safe travels!

I will have two days trip. I will drive from Phoenix to antelope canyon on first day, and drive back to phoenix on later afternoon second day. Can somebody give me some suggestions for planning my trip.

Thank you

    Hi Michelle,
    First off, decide whether you want to visit Upper or Lower Antelope Canyon. In a nutshell, Upper is easy, 100 yards, flat the whole way; Lower is a bit more difficult, involves some stair climbing and boulder-stepping. Upper Vs. Lower Antelope Canyon When you choose which branch of Antelope Canyon to see, make a reservation for a tour.
    Be sure to stop by Horseshoe Bend as well, either on your way from Phoenix to Page, or on the trip back. Try to avoid driving at night if at all possible.
    Other activities you might consider, depending on time of year you’re visiting and daylength, include but are not limited to:
    * Hidden Canyon Kayak Tour
    * Lake Powell Canyon Adventure Boat Tour
    * Rainbow Bridge Air Tour
    * Glen Canyon Half-Day Float Trip
    Hope that helps. Best wishes for safe travels!
    Alley 🙂
