Colorado River Discovery offers the most fantastic one day rafting trips...

Colorado River Discovery offers the most fantastic one day rafting trips anywhere on the mighty Colorado River. We provide half-day and full day tours that are perfect for the entire family (kids aged 4 and up). Departing from the scenic town of Page, Arizona, your trip will begin with an exciting and exclusive ride down the two-mile long Glen Canyon Dam access tunnel. At river level, with the dam soaring 700 feet above you, you will board a comfortable pontoon raft for your journey downstream. While on the River, you will experience one of the most dramatic stretches of river in the western United States. Your experienced guide will tell the story of the area’s soaring sandstone cliffs, crystal blue-green waters, abundant wildlife, exploration by Major John Wesley Powell and others, and the river's modern role in the Southwest’s water and power delivery system.A stop to view an impressive set of ancient petroglyphs will offer a you chance to stretch your legs and enjoy your lunch while bearing witness to the area’s former inhabitance by ancient native cultures. If you choose, you may also refresh yourself by wading in the cold, clear river. Come and visit the river that we love... You'll be inspired!

Great morning out and the river. The day starts quite early around 7:15am at CRD's offices in the Page, then it's a short coach to the river (via the two mile long Glen Canyon Dam access tunnels - amazing!). The journey down the river is a very calm and relaxing float (with the occasional bursts from the outboard motor). Very... More

My family and I did the full day flat water boat ride down the Colorado River. CRD did an excellent job in the excursion. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He gave lots of great information. We didn't feel rushed, but he kept the day moving. You could tell that he liked his job. The boats are well maintained... More

I had originally booked a full day trip but revised our booking to a half day. I was glad that I changed the booking because I think we saw the highlights with the abbreviated trip. 14 people on the boat, including our family of four. Our guide, Kyle, was charming and very welcoming. Our kids were the only young ones... More

CRD did a fantastic job start to finish. The day began with check in at their very well stocked outfitter store and cafe. There were clean rest rooms available all day. The transportation to and from the river was clean and comfortable. The trip itself was amazing. Our guide, Erin, is a member of the Hopi nation and she regaled... More

Fun tour on a motorized raft down the Colorado River that starts after a drive through the two mile tunnel to the Glen Canyon Dam. The area is beautiful. The raft goes to Horseshoe Bend where you can see the people ( although they look more like ants from below) standing at the edge of the cliffs above. There is... More

I have always wanted to take a ride on the Colorado but could not do a white-water rafting trip. This experience was fantastic as you glide along with the beautiful sandstone cliffs on either side down through Horseshoe turn in the river. We booked the morning ride, which I recommend due to the heat of the afternoon. We got to... More

Awesome day trip along the Colorado River. A totally different perspective of the landscape from the Glen Canyon Dam all the way to Lees Ferry. Even the bus ride back had breathtaking views as well. Our tour guide was great (thank you to Alex!). The whole operation from start to finish was organized and great.

Our family of 5 (3 teens) spent a fantastic day on the raft with Erica as our guide. It was a real highlight of our holiday. What made it so good? - - the organisation. Very good set up at the centre, efficiently run. The coach transfers to the river were very slick and well-practiced. - the scenery. What can... More

We had an incredible experience on the half day tour, with CRD! We would highly suggest this company and tour, as a great way to experience the river & horseshoe bend. The guide was incredibly friendly & outgoing. The size of the group was perfect, and we would do it again!
