We visited by houseboat in July. We left from bullfrog and made it there in 2 days but we did stop a few time. The water was really down so after you tie up at the dock it is a good mile walk. Once you get there though it is worth it! We took great pictures and talked with the... More

Pull in by boat. Tie up, swim across, climb the trail and there's an awesome cliff to jump from. A memory that won't fade.

You have to get here by boat, and we left from Bullfrog Marina and made several stops along the way. There's a dock to tie-up here, but when we arrived, it was pretty crowded, so we had to work pretty hard to find a space. There's a nice (for its location) restroom just off the dock. It's a bit over... More

It takes around two hrs by ship/boat from lake Powell resort. After getting down, we walked almost 2KM to reach rambow bridge. We went there in June and weather was hot and humid.Walking on sand up to some distance was really tough. We reached there after 20 to 30 minutes of walk and captured some memorable snapshots with family.

Rainbow Bridge is not that readily accessible. By that, I mean you do not just drive up and jump out of your car to see it. You can either indulge yourself in a long hike across Navajo land (permit required) or, as we did, hire a boat for the day from Page, Arizona, and head across Lake Powell. It is... More

Rainbow Bridge is truly amazing. Read the pamphlet you are given before going. It's full of fun facts and is terrific for kids. We went with kids ages 5-12 and it was awesome. There is a park ranger at the base of the bridge that has a photo book with the original pictures of the bridges discovery and it's unique... More

First up, Rainbow Bridge is a wonderful place and you should go and see it! There's a ranger on site - knows a lot of stories about the place (anyway, the one we saw, did). We went there with the Aramark cruise and that's not a good option. As others have said there's a problem with the seating space and... More

We spent a week on a houseboat on Lake Powell. This was the most beautiful arch I have ever seen. Took some beautiful pictures which were blown up and hang on my wall. The whole trip was wonderful and I would recommend it as a great family adventure.

Recently traveled to Lake Powell and loved every minute of it. Rainbow bridge is awesome and well worth the trek! The Lake itself is beautiful and enjoyed every minute we spent out on the lake. This is for sure a place I would recommend to my family and friends!

First, if you have any boat driving experience, you must rent a boat on Lake Powell. We went 50 miles up to Rainbow Bridge and every second was spectacular beauty. Go up river to Buoy Marker 49 and watch for the small white floating sign for Rainbow Bridge on the right (boat facing up lake). Once inside the canyon, go... More
