Rented a boat and truck from Skylite Boat Rental and had an awesome experience. Boat ran great. Seats were a little worn but overall boat in good condition for a rental. Staff was very helpful and we had an awesome time. You need to do this! Sights are awesome. We had the boat from 8 AM to 6 PM. We... More

I have traveled to Page several times as I have family who live in this lovely town. I highly recommend visiting this area if you love the outdoors and lake activities. I have never been disappointed on any of my visits. Most people do not know that horseshoe canyon is only 1/2 mile hike south of Page. Antelope canyon is... More

Like all dam lakes it is a vast body of water and though impressive when you have seen a lot of them in honesty they don't look all that different. This one is more barren than others I've been to, the area does lack vegetataion.

We were a bit skeptical about this trip because we have done several 18-20 day dory trips on the Grand Canyon, and have heard how the dam "ruined the river"...but we were talked into a kayak trip by some good friends -- they had done the trip several years ago...boy are we glad we went. The area has so much... More

If you are planning a trip to Lake Powell, Arizona, USA, make certain that you contact Rusty Rath at Antelope Point Marine. He will give you not only the best day on the lake but make the whole day a memorable one. He looked after us on the first day the lake was open after the government shutdown, and turned... More

we rented a speed boat for a few hours to see the Lake. Our captain Bryan was very knowledgeable and friendly. But , of course, canyons were absolutely spectacular! we visited Antelope Canyon and Navajo Canyon. Both were fantastic and very different. we also saw the Glen Canyon Dam, but the view is much better from the bridge above.

It is unique lake about 150 miles long. Actually it's part of Colorado river with labyrynth of numerous water-filled canyons. Accessible by boat only. Views are unbelievable, good fishing is a plus. You can rent house- or motor-boat. I tried 4-days house-boat trip and can say for sure that trip should be at least a week long. There are several... More

Beautiful area with deep blue of lake against a very arid dry landscape that looks spectacular. There were people rafting just below the dam on the upper Colorado river and they were like little spects from the lookout areas. The dam itself is huge and can best be seen from the visitor center beside the bridge. It is almost as... More
