Description: Colorado River Discovery offers the most fantastic one day rafting trips...
Colorado River Discovery offers the most fantastic one day rafting trips anywhere on the mighty Colorado River. 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!

We took the 1/2 day float trip and it was amazing. Our guide Josh made the trip down the river very fun and memorable. The entire staff was courteous and friendly. A must-do experience when in Page!

We spent 5 days in Page, saved one of the best for the last day, Colorado River Discovery. We did the full day & our guide was Brent. Brent is very laid back, informative, has a unique style, & plays melodic wood wind music a few times on the river float, adds so much to the experience. This was my... More

My grandmother and I did the 7:30 rafting trip on Thursday the 23rd of July, 2015. The name of our guide was Blais and he was very humorous, kind, and informative! On our rafting trip, Blais did an excellent job of informing us about the facts, history, and structure of the Colorado River and the environment that it takes part... More

We had a wonderful day floating down the Colorado River. The trip was extremely well thought of & organized. We did the full day trip and it was well worth the money. The lunch was delicious and had lots of goodies in the bag. I had the vegetarian option and it was fantastic. Wonderful photos taken. The scenery was spectacular!!... More

We wanted to include water activity while in Page. Between two options - Glen Canyon motorized pontoon trip or Antelope Canyon Boat trip on Lake Powel we decided on Glen Canyon. You start with short bus drive to the Glen Canyon Dam. The bus was not air-conditioned and it was a bit difficult to breathe while in a tunnel that... More

My family of 5 took the afternoon on a sunny afternoon. We checked in as scheduled and had time to order lunch to take along (my advice is to eat it -don't save it as ours was 2 hours old when we felt like we could eat it on the tour). There are restrooms in the shop (with quite a... More

Well organised trip. CRD Centre is well managed and has a great cafe if you arrive early or are between morning and afternoon tours. A short bus ride to the dam and a gentle/relaxed raft trip from the dam down river past the the horseshoe bend. Our guide was very informative and she had a very natural way of managing... More
