Overview

Colorado River Discovery offers the most fantastic one day rafting trips anywhere on the mighty Colorado River. We provide half-day 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 trip will begin 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 will board a comfortable pontoon raft for your journey downstream. While on the River, 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 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 will offer a you chance to stretch your legs and enjoy your lunch while bearing witness to the area’s former inhabitance by ancient native cultures. If you choose, you may also refresh yourself by wading in the cold, clear river. Come and visit the river that we love... You'll be inspired!

The ride was quite soothing, however, a half day rafting ride would be too long and dull. The view was not much different along the way. By the way, their lunch bag was so good, especially the roast beef sandwich. Yum!

This was a great one day rafting adventure. The scenery was magnificent and this tour group did a wonderful job.I highly recommend that you don't miss out on this opportunity if you are in the Page, Arizona area. Colorado River Discovery runs a seamless tour.

We booked a couple months in advance and I'm guessing August is already pretty busy. If you can book ahead- do it. If not - check out the website- there is a phone number you can call. Or, when you get to Page, go to the... More
