We provide half-day and full day tours that are perfect for the entire family (kids aged 4 and up). Departing from the scenic town of Page, Arizona, your trip will begin with an exciting and exclusive ride down the two-mile long Glen Canyon Dam access tunnel. At river level, with the dam soaring 700 feet above you, you will board a comfortable pontoon raft for your journey downstream. While on the River, you will experience one of the most dramatic stretches of river in the western United States. Your experienced guide will tell the story of the area’s soaring sandstone cliffs, crystal blue-green waters, abundant wildlife, exploration by Major John Wesley Powell and others, and the river's modern role in the Southwest’s water and power delivery system.A stop to view an impressive set of ancient petroglyphs will offer a you chance to stretch your legs and enjoy your lunch while bearing witness to the area’s former inhabitance by ancient native cultures. If you choose, you may also refresh yourself by wading in the cold, clear river. Come and visit the river that we love... You'll be inspired! « less

We were only staying in Page overnight. We decided to go on the pontoon raft trip the afternoon of our arrival. Colorado River Discovery runs a very smooth operation. We took a bus from their headquarters in Page to Glen Canyon where we boarded the pontoon. There were about 18 people on our boat. Our guide was very experienced and... More

We did the afternoon half day trip and while it was a very hot day it didn't detract from an extremely memorable 4 hours. Our guide Brent, was not only knowledgeable but also a dab hand with poetry and playing the didgeridoo. It was a very hot day but Brent made sure that no one got too hot, by making... More

While staying at Grand Canyon National Park, we took the coach bus (reserved through Xanterra) to Page & did the 4 hour "full day" smooth water raft trip through Glen Canyon. After a 2 mile bus ride through a tunnel to descend to the river bank - (cool), we boarded the raft. Our guide was fabulous, explaining everything, entertaining us... More

We did this adventure a few weeks ago. It was awesome. I was concern that it would be too hot but our guide was wonderful finding shade along the river. We did the all day trip and it stil went to fast. We stop along the way and looked at the native petroglyphs. Every turn was something new. While this... More

We did the half day morning boat ride! It was AMAZING! There aren't words for how beautiful that area is and how much you are reminded to appreciate all that you see around you and that you should take a moment and connect with it as often as you can! :) This is not a white water rafting type of...

We did the 31/2 - 4 hr. raft trip. We were given thorough instructions on what we could bring and not bring when I called for reservations. Our guide was Brett and he was very entertaining and knowledgeable. The trip is so relaxing and the scenery exquisite as you float down Glen Canyon. A stop is made after about an... More

I moved to Page in 2001 and began floating the river with friends and relatives who visit town. Just made my 35th trip downriver and had a great time again. There's always something going on...critters, birds, beauty...the staff and guides somehow manage to stay nice while they are flooded with questions from people visiting all over the World. One of...

We had the best time ever! Full day trip with our awesome river guide, Emily, was so much more fun than we ever expected. She was incredibly knowledgable and entertaining. All the employees are incredibly professional and the entire organization was well run. We are recommending a CRD trip with Emily to all our friends.

Don't miss an opportunity to go on this adventure! Not only were the views spectacular, but the staff was friendly, fun & professional. If you join them, ask for Megan (aka megafalls) to be your guide. Megan deserves 5 stars ***** for her fun & educational efforts. The only downfall was rushing to the boats to avoid being on the...

First of all do not expect white water rafting because this is not what they offer here. It's a motor boat down the Glen canyon on smooth water starting at Page. The trip takes about 3.5h. Our guide Ali was knowledgeable and fun. The stop at the beach was really nice and well needed on a hot day. The second... More
