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

The float trip is a great way to see Glen Canyon. They take you down the 2 mile access tunnel to the base of Glen Canyon Dam. Then you travel down river stopping off at a beach (you can swim but the water is 47 degrees), down around Horseshoe Bend then back up river to the dam. It's a good... More

We booked a "raftingtour" on the Colorado river on 20th of August. Before depature, we were told that protection against rain would be provided by the company. In the beginning the tour was gentle, but it was not " rafting", but rather a smooth shipping. After one and a half hour and a short stop, obviously rain was imminent, even... More

Not much to say negative. You check in, take a short bus ride through a tunnel and bam your at the bottom of the dam. Next sit back and enjoy. Knowledgeable guide leads you to Horseshoe Bend and back, plus a chance to jump in the Colorado. Good for anyone. It was August and it was cool. Flip Flops are... More

We booked well in advance for an afternoon’s ‘half day raft tour’ down the Colorado River. This cost $91 each, for approximately four hours, and was worth every cent! We were told to turn up at the office in the centre of town by 12.30pm, for our 1pm departure. The first impression of the staff wasn’t great, because a very... More

Professionally run organization, with all needs thought of and taken care of. We did the raft trip which provided an awesome view of the dam and canyon from ground level which really helps you experience the grandeur of the area. After checking in, staff provides step-by-step review of the trip. You take a short bus ride to the dam, board... More

Even though it was a smooth water rafting trip it was very fun and exciting. Our guide Brent really made the trip he exceed our expectations. He was knowledgeable and had the answer to every question thrown at him. He also took the time to get to know our group. Overall it was good fun and without him as our... More

Fantastic time for group ages 11-65. No one got wet. AM half day was cool in Aug. Light jacket would have been nice, but I couldn't imagine that in AZ in Aug. I was wondering about footwear and wore normal (not outdoorsy ) sandals. Didn't get feet wet & flip flops would have worked ok - but sandals easier in... More

We had a fantastic time riding down the river with Brent N. He clearly loves his job and loves being out on the water. He was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and more. I would highly recommend him should you choose to take this trip.

This was the highlight of our stay in Page. We checked in early at the CRD store in Page. Next we rode a bus through a tunnel in the canyon walls to the docks at the base of the Glen Canyon Dam....this tunnel was created for the workers who built the dam. There we boarded a pontoon raft. They can... More

It was pouring rain in the morning before our 1 pm half day trip down the Colorado River. However, we sucked it up and went to Wal-Mart and bought rain gear. It was no wonder, though, all of the guides wanted to go that day...it was fabulous! By the time we got down to the river, there was not a... More
