I have been to Lake Powell 18 times since 1986, and have explored most every nook that can be reached in a boat or on foot. I love the area. But sometimes it is very difficult for those who would like to go to decide between the many options before them--especially when they only have a week.
So many choices. But it all starts with deciding what your goals are. Do you want to focus on hiking? Scenery? Fishing? Waterskiing? Camping? Solitude? Narrow canyons? Open bays? Archaeological ruins?
How big is your group? Do they need a luxury houseboat? Or lakeside camping? Maybe something in between... How long will you have? A seven-day trip provides a lot more flexibility than a 3-day excursion. Do you have kids? This presents an entirely different set of issues, ranging from safety, to fun adventures geared to their abilities, to learning experiences they will enjoy.
I can help you translate your interests into a great Lake Powell adventure. With my knowledge of the canyons, hiking, how to operate a houseboat, the best camping spots, and practical tips (about food, safety, preparation, and fun things you might want but won't know it till it's too late), I'd be happy to help.
