Take a river raft tour, you will see amazing views. Make sure you do a full day tour which is about 6 hours.

Wish I had more time to discover all there was to do. Hoping I'll get a chance to do that. So glad I got to visit the Carl Hayden Visitor Center. A wealth of information.

We floated Glen Canyon Dam to Lees Ferry. It was a great trip and there are many camping opportunities along the way. Many people spend two days on this trip. Great beauty in the canyon.

Stunning views! Drive the scenic roads, but to really see the park, you need to get on a boat. We brought kayaks and put in at the Antelope Point launch and paddled to the end of Antelope Canyon as well as too the Rainbow Bridge boat ride.

We rented a houseboat from Lake Powell, it was a lot of fun, but if you have never rented a houseboat or driven one, make sure you get a good orientation. We did not get one, and had troubles within the first 20 minutes of our boat trip. But the marina made it good with us, and I would probably... More

While we didn't have a few extra days to do all of the fun activities available, just a few hours on the beach was really nice! The clear blue water against the white canyons are amazing. I would have loved to kayak the slot canyons and see rainbow bridge - you could stay in the area for a week and... More

This is a special place with fantastic scenery and best seen by boat as there are very few roads. Spend the money and time to see all you can.

An amazing place to just be or to boat if that's your thing. Stunning views looking back towards the dam and then amazing water and mountain views. I was there for several rainbows which was awesome! A great place to camp too.

If you are looking for a different vacation, without internet or cell phone distractions, and with something to do for everyone look no further. With our three adult daughters and two son-in-laws we rented the 54' Escape Luxury Houseboat with a 19' fishing boat and two double kayaks. We took water skis with ropes and life vests. Perfect time to... More
