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 greatly enjoyed our family smooth water rafting trip down the Colorado River into the Glen Canyon. Due to a rock slide a few days before our trip was changed and the company handled it perfectly! We got an even longer tour and free food. Our guide, Nick Smith, was awesome! He was informative, fun, and created a great atmosphere... More

Our party of 6 (4 adults and 2 youths, 11 and 14) joined the AM Kayak and PM Rafting Tour. We enjoyed every minute of the day. We started with guided kayaking on Lake Powell in the morning, as we got advice from TripAdvisor that the lake water will be calmer in the morning hours. It was indeed calm and... More

Fantastic trip! Took the smooth water rafting half day tour. Our guide, Jaylin was amazing, both informative and funny. We (all the rafters) got to know each other, with the help of Jaylin. Paul Dawkins, a parks department employee, told us all about the Petroglyphs when we stopped. The whole trip was professionally organized from start to finish. The check... More

we did the half day tour and just had a great time, a little slow at the beginning (we had kids 6-8 with us), but the ride back was fast & fun, beach stop was neat, crew folks were nice and friendly, bus ride was neat through the tunnel - a good time and great introduction to riding in the...

Great experience. Went on the full day slow water raft trip with my daughters (11 and 13) and we all had a great time. Informative, fun and truly beautiful. Bring your water bottle and a camera. Don't forget to wear a swim suit under your clothes for the dip in the 46 degree water! Or if you forgot like I... More

My grandson and I had a "guys only" vacation and went rafting on the Colorado as part of it. We both had a good time and our guide (Ren) was very informative. She stopped the raft at multiple location to explain all of the sights starting with the Glen Canyon Dam and ending at Lee's Ferry.

Did an afternooon float on a drive between the Grand Canyon North Rim and Phoenix. Totally worth it. The operation is well run and efficient. Check in was easy, though the place itself isn't really on the main street of Page. Make sure you know where you're going, cause you won't just stumble upon it. 10 minutes before departure, the...

Our guide, Brent, was terrific. From his Native American flute solo to diving into the water with our two 13-year-old twin boys, his exuberance for the river is strong and infectious. He had the perfect blend of information, fun facts and playfulness. I'm sure all guides are well trained, but Brent's experience and attitude were great for us. He clearly... More

We took the half day river tour and it was a blast, the highlight of our trip. Only wish we would have had a little more time in Page to do the full day tour. Our guide Nick was a blast....very fun and informative. If you want a little more "excitement" than the usual flatwater, get in Nicks boat......but bring... More
