I visited Rainbow Bridge National Monument in the spring, just outside the very busiest season. The place itself is gorgeous, but getting there is a lot of fun, too. The Lake Powell boat tour is quite a long boat tour, but it's very scenic. There's also cereal bars, coffee, and some other things on the boat, in addition to the... More

It was a brilliant, crisp morning as our tour boat slowly churned out of Wahweap Marina. Then, it was full throttle as twin props and 1200 horsepower propelled us over the shimmering waters of Lake Powell. The November sun passes low in the sky, which casts deep vertical shadows amidst the glowing red sandstone formations. It was a photographer's delight.... More

From the Wahweap Marina, the Rainbow Bridge tour on Lake Powell took us to the trailhead of the natural bridge. There is a lot to see on the long way there, but commentary on the way kept us entertained. At the natural bridge, a guide gave more information. The boat ride is about 2 hrs each way, and there is... More

WOW!! What a wonderful trip. We reserved our boat trip to Rainbow Bridge at the Lake Powell Museum and showed up at the marina the day of the tour at 7AM. We were quickly processed, briefed and walked to the boat docks to board the boat. We started the 2.5 hr boat ride right on time and were able to... More

It was a long boat ride out an back with a short hike in the middle. Hike wasn't too difficult, some may need to take it slow. Bridge is outstanding, people can be jerks about posing in front of everything, but what's new? Thought cost was a little high, but no choices. Get to the sign in desk early as... More

Very enjoyable walk to the Rainbow Bridge. Definitely rent your own boat and dock at the marina. You don't need a special permit or whatsoever, so just go for it!

We took a full day boat tour from Lake Powell Resort. Boat was comfortable and attendants really nice. Freezing in the morning so come prepared, it warms up as the day progresses. Views of Lake Powell are breathtaking. The hike to Rainbow Bridge is short, easy and beautiful, ending in the gorgeous natural rock bridge, a very special day, totally... More

Had a wonderful day. Great scenery and service on the boat was awesome! The walk to the bridge was a little tricky for me at 58 years old but made it with no problems but older passengers didn't feel comfortable.

We went by cruise boat and it was amazing. The walk was easy. The bridge was really neat to see. If you have spent much time in the west, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, then you might not be wowed. But the ride there is gorgeous and it's was a fun thing to do.

We took the boat tour to the monument. It's about a half mile hike to the bridge from the dock. The trail is very easy. There is only one part that is steep. The arch is much bigger than you expect. It's only when you see people standing at its base, that you can get a grasp of its size.... More
