So despite numerous attempts, we did not manage to go to the actual Wave, but in addition to the Fire Wave in Nevada, the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area has the next best thing. Coming from page, just after the big bend following the dam, there is a dirt road that goes off to the left. It then divides into... More

If you get the chance to learn about and tour the Glen Canyon Dam then I recommend it. We really enjoyed our time there and learning about how the area states agreed to control use of the Colorado River with the start of the Hoover Dam (if I remember all my facts correctly).

We had a one hour trip which was really scenic and allowed us to get into some of the more inaccessible spots. Quite expensive though for just an hour.

The canyon is beautiful. We went on the dam tour for $5/person. It was ok. The area is great if you have a boat. We didn't have a boat so what we could do was limited.

I had a wonderful experience visiting the Glen Canyon Dam & the Glen Canyon Bridge with a tour group.They have a very educational showroom & exhibits about the history of Glen Canyon Dam & how it works. Our tour group watched a movie about the Dam. Then there was a private tour guide that works at Glen Canyon Dam that... More

The 1st time i visited this place was 2 years ago and the second time 13 days ago. But this time i managed to see the dam from the scenic view drive but it's dangerous to approach the view of the Colorado river.

We did a boat tour from Page and could see the canyons via boat. It was a nice way to experience the canyons on a bright sunny day

The whole area is beautiful! Must have vehicle to access and some areas require hiking but very much worth the effort.
