I took a 1/2 day river float on September 19, 2013, and absolutely loved the experience. A tour bus drives you from the storefront in town to the base of the dam, where you then load onto the float boats. The bus driver narrated and pointed out various pieces of scenery on our drive through town and to the base of the dam. Our boat guide, Drew, was very knowledgable and very well-spoken - it was more like he was conversing with us rather than giving a tour. Halfway through the trip, we docked and walked a short ways to view Indian petroglyphs. Again, Drew gave us an overview of these and pointed out some of the wildlife (lizards and caterpillars on our tour). On the boat, we saw osprey, heron, and mallards. Overall, a fantastic experience that gives you a whole new perspective on the canyon.
