Please note that this tour is only available from spring through fall. You will depart the Grand Canyon South Rim at about 6.30 a.m. for a transfer to Page, on the shores of Lake Powell. Arriving at Page, you will be taken to the Glen Canyon Dam Wall. The Colorado River flows from Lake Powell out of Glen Canyon Dam, towards Lee's Ferry, the official starting point of raft trips through the Grand Canyon. Today you'll be taking a float trip down the river.
The adventure begins with an unusual ride down the two mile long Glen Canyon Dam access tunnel. At river level, with the dam soaring almost 600 feet above you, you will board a comfortable, motorized pontoon raft for your journey downstream.
For the next fifteen miles, 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 (after whom Lake Powell is named) and others, and the river's modern role in the Southwest’s water and power delivery system.
A picnic style lunch is provided on the banks of the Colorado. At historic Lee's Ferry you will be met by a coach or vans to take you back to the Grand Canyon. On the way back you'll have the opportunity to shop at the Cameron Trading Post, one of the best southwestern and Native American souvenir stores anywhere. The total tour duration is about 12 1/2 hours.
