We accessed the canyon during a rafting tour. The canyon is truly beautiful, and it was great to learn about some of its features from our tour guide. I highly recommend a visit for anyone in the Page, AZ area.

We spent a couple of days in the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. Lots of outdoor activities to partake in. We did a dinner cruise, a boat tour, and a river float trip. Great times!

We went on the boat tour of the lake and through Antelope Canyon. The scenery was beautiful, and it was a good tour although, not too exciting. This cruise lasts for about two hours, very informative and some tight spots to get through the canyon. Recommended.

Rented a houseboat on Lake Powell from lakepowell.com. 9 people 7 days. The superlatives were far too many to count. Had a ski boat in tow for exploring and scouting out beach for anchoring. Words fail to describe the views. Greatest family vacation ever - 9 people confined to the boat - great family conversation. Just do it!

We have been going to this National Park for decades and it never gets old. The best way to really enjoy the lake is to rent a houseboat and bring a ski boat or some sort of personal watercraft. We have hit the water sports hard all day, enjoyed touring slot canyons that are unexpectedly scenic and just relaxed on... More

Simply extraordinary. Go to the Marina and make sure you book one of the cruises they offer. We did the 1,5 hour one and was the highlight of my 21 day tour. Couldn't stop the tears rolling down my cheeks in front of the powerful beauty and history of this magical magical magical place. Red rocks, blue waters and native... More

We went down to the Lone Rock beach for a swim. The water was very refreshing on a hot afternoon in July. There were lots of other people there, but plenty of room for everyone.

Cruised the lake and was excited to see the formations and scenery. It was worth every bit of the trip and the facilities for tourists were great for day visitors and stayers. A scenic Highlight of South West USA. Traveled on a three day Tour from Las Vegas, The boat cruise is the only way to see it.
