“Antelope Canyon Boat tour and Wahweap swim beach”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Took the 1030 AM one and a half hour tour around Antelope Island which included a view of Glen Canyon Dam and access to one of the side canyons. Sat on the top deck. Head sets are provided to intermittently give information in various languages about the Dam, Glen Canyon and the Navajo people. My 6 and 9 yr old grandchildren really enjoyed the tour. Just the right amount of tour time for them. Sat on the top deck. Need hats and sunscreen to protect against the very bright sun. The staff at the marina were very organized and professional. Did have to walk back up the steep hill after the tour. They have golf carts to transport people who can't make that strenous but short hike back up to the resort. Enjoyed the wonderful gift shop at the Lake Powell Resort and a wonderful lunch afterwards in the Rainbow Room with a fantastic view of the Lake. Afterwards changed into bathing suits in the restrooms near the Wahweap swim beach. Walked the 3/4 mile down the hill to the swim beach. Kids really enjoyed the water. It was a windy day. The breezes starting kicking up the sand. Did not enjoy walking back up the hill to the parking lot. The scenery fabulous. Blue skies, red rocks, blue lake water.

“So much to see and so little time”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Beautiful scenery, lots of amenities. If you love boating there is plenty of water and lots of places to go. Great fishing. The water is inviting for swimming..Hiking trails...I never know what or where to go next. Make sure you allow extra time to explore this vast area!

“Wonderful Family Houseboat Vacation Experience”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We spent 3 days on Lake Powell on a 59 ft houseboat with some of our children and grandchildren. We all agreed Lake Powell was the best place for a houseboat vacation. The scenery was absolutley amazing. Houseboating can involve some work especially when it is your first experience, but you see things you wouldn't see any other way. You only have to be a licensed driver 18 or older to pilot the boat, but we were glad to have a couple experienced boaters with us to drive the boat and handle the anchoring and docking. It was more than my husband or I would have wanted to attempt. The boats have recently been re-done. The kitchen was modern and convenient. The kids and adults loved the slide. It was very hot when we were there so ran the generator and A/C quite a bit. The living area cooled down very nicely but the airflow wasn't as good in the staterooms. The boat could accomodate 12 . We had 9 (7 adults and 2 children) and would have been too crowded with any more than that. We had a Travelzoo voucher so were able to have the houseboating experience at a fraction of the usual cost, making it a great way to try a houseboating vacation.

“Lake Powell Resorts and Marinas”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We totally enjoyed our three days on Lake Powell. This was made possible by the good people at the Lake Powell Marina managed by Aramark.

The staff and management of the boat rental / marina were extremely helpful and professional in every step of the rental process. Their help and recommendations made the trip extremely successful

We can't wait to return
