Boat trip on lake Powell or Colorado float trip?

Unfortunately won't have time to do both. Which of these would you most recommend for our family with teenagers (17,14 and 11) during our stay at Page?

You'll get divided opinion on this one, but I would opt for a chance to take a Colorado river trip. You'll experience a more natural adventure exploring one of the world's great river canyons versus motorboating around a man-made lake that destroyed much of that river.

Either way, you'll have a great experience and adventure.

Both are unique and enjoyable, but I'd choose the raft trip. See my recent review and trip report and photos.

I'm going to go with the rest and say the rafting. With your kids ages I think being on a tour boat on the lake they won't get as much interaction as they would with the raft.

If you could rent a boat and go out on your own on the lake with a tube then I'd say for sure the lake. Nothing like that during the hot summer days.
