We called ahead and were told we could get permits at the Glen Canyon visitors center(s.) Not at Wahweap. Not at Antelope Point. At Antelope Point we were told we only needed our national parks pass to get to Rainbow Bridge. That was not what we had read on line, so I didn't want to break the law. We went... More

We did the full day sail from Lake Powell Marina . If you have the time and physical fitness I am sure hiking in would bring more rewards. The way in was full of interesting and attractive scenes and the commentary from the tour and captain of the ship informative and timely. The bridge itself is REALLY big. We did... More

We took the boat tour out of Wahheep Marina, when we got to Rainbow Bridge were told we had a mile & 1/4 walk to Rainbow Bridge. We elected not to walk as we had seen this monument previously .. at one time when the water was high you could see Rainbow Bridge from the Boat! The majority of the... More

We took the boat trip from Lake Powell Resort and thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Before arriving at Rainbow Bridge you pass some amazing scenery. When you dock, you have a 20 minute walk to the bridge which is awe inspiring as it comes into sight.

If you're boating on Lake Powell and have the ability to take a power boat into Forbidding Canyon then you'd be silly not to take the opportunity to visit this natural arch. There is ample, purpose-built mooring available and I also saw two 46ft houseboats moored there (although I take my hat off to the skippers for achieving that on... More

Take a boat ride from Wahweep marina. The round trip is about 6 hours but you see awesome scenery. The bridge is very spiritual.

It takes a couple of hours (if based in Page) to get there, but the boat trip is will worth it. The natural bridge and surrounding area is stunning and the walk from the docking area to the monument makes you feel like you're back in the Wild West. Well worth a visit!

The drive was an experience unto its self. Thought I would never get to the arches as I was always stopping an making photos. But upon arrival it was wonderful. Better like to walk hawever if you want to see the great arch.

Absolutely breathtaking in person. Very beautiful, and definitely worth the trip. I am only giving it 4/5 because the accessibility is not ideal. The 2 ways of seeing it (boat and plane) either burn up your day or your wallet respectively.

The boat ride is a few hours but the scenery is worth it. Once there it's just a little hike to Rainbow Bridge and you can not recreate the feeling of actually being there just looking at pictures of the bridge.
