The Basics

Recreation is king at Lake Powell with excellent boating, water skiing, jet-skiing, kayaking, and fishing. Boat tours grant visitors a leisurely overview of the lake and its landscapes, or you can charter your own boat for the day. You can also admire Lake Powell from the air by airplane or helicopter tour. A trip to Lake Powell is often combined with other top Arizona sights, including the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, and Horseshoe Bend.

Arizona Highlights - Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell Flight with River Rafting
This tour gives you an incredible perspective of the Grand Canyon! From the birds eye view from the air to the beautiful Antelope Cavern to the float through the canyon on the usually calm Colorado River before the white water. A thunderstorm came up while on the river and while we were pelted with icy cold rain/hail and wind - enough so our guide had to beach the raft for safety - we later saw the rare waterfalls in the canyon at every turn!

Arizona Highlights - Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell Flight with River Rafting
We had a great time. Keep in mind that you will have to leave sharp objects at home for security checks before the boat ride. Everyone was nice and the trip was well organized.

My family had the best time on this tour! The morning flight was beautiful, the Antelope Canyon tour was one of the most unique and amazing experiences of all and the smooth water tour was great too. Dress in layers since the rafting began hot and rained the last hour. It was a wonderful trip!

we had a fantastic day! The raft trip with our guide, Brad, was the highlight of our Arizona vacation. Be sure to dress in layers as the temperature changes depending on whether you are at the top of the Canyon or on the water at the bottom of the Canyon.

Wonderful program. Spectacular views and a flight over the Grand Canyon. Very knowledgable and helpful travel guides answering all questions and making sure everybody is happy. A long drive home finally, but can't be avoided. I enjoyed every part of it.
