Day Rafting Trips On the Colorado River
Colorado River Discovery offers the most informative and finest one day rafting trips anywhere on the mighty Colorado River. We provide half- 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 adventure begins 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’ll board a comfortable pontoon raft for your journey downstream.
For the next fifteen miles, you’ll experience one of the most dramatic stretches of river in the western United States. Your experienced guide will describe 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 offers an opportunity to stretch your legs and enjoy your lunch while bearing witness to the area’s former inhabitants and ancient native cultures. If you choose, you may also briefly wade in the cold, clear river.
The river portion of your trip ends at historic Lees Ferry, gateway to the Grand Canyon. Here, you will board your bus for the short ride back to Page, where your vehicle or other transportation awaits.
Make your reservation today to experience beautiful Glen Canyon from the Colorado River’s perspective.
