Owner description: Explore the Lake Powell side of world-famous Antelope Canyon – perhaps one of the most photographed slot canyons on Earth. This personalized tour takes you from Antelope Point Marina downlake along the Colorado River’s original channel to the canyon opening along sheer redrock cliffs. Safely navigable, the narrow canyon – with towering walls of ancient Navajo sandstone – is awe-inspiring and unique.

Taking this tour was way better than the big boat that can’t get into the canyon very far. Not to mention cheaper! Our guide was very informative and safe. We enjoyed this very much. Don’t miss seeing the canyon from the water.

Lake Powell is huge and taking a 1-hour boat tour with Antelope Canyon Boat Tours will show you only a tiny, tiny glimpse of it. Just keep this in mind when you book. Now, this is not to say that this boat tour isn't worth your dime (a pretty steep $28 per person, and you need to pay the entrance fee to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area or have a valid park pass and there’s an entrance fee to the marina as well, sigh), just know what you're in for. It easily takes up to 10 minutes to get out of the marina and into the narrower canyons that define Lake Powell (and what people will generally think of when they hear the words Lake Powell). It then takes another 10 minutes to get back, so you'll get to (really) enjoy only about 40 minutes. Staff is friendly and will go out of their way to make sure anybody gets to make photos from the boat's front (although, believe me, the ones taken from the back are equally as nice), but I thought they could have provided some more background information about Lake Powell. Take into consideration that the walkway from the ticket booth to the actual boat is long and quite a strenuous hike (although they do offer courtesy shuttles), so show up in time. If you do have enough time (and money), I would probably recommend taking a boat tour out to Rainbow Bridge and see more of Lake Powell as such, but as a short introduction to Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon Boat Tours will do the trick.

We liked this boat tour better, because it got us directly into the Antelope Canyon.
Jared, our captain was very friendly and explained a lot for us.
They have golf carts to take you down to the Marina. Give a tip

We took the one hour tour at about 1 pm and loved it. We planned it so that we would eat lunch at The Point and then do the tour. It was a lovely afternoon. Mike, our guide did a nice job and provided a lot of good information. The canyons are absolutely stunning. Being out on the water with the high canyon walls to your left and right is really something. I read on Tripadvisor that if you show your receipt from Lower Antelope Canyon on the same day, you don’t have to pay the $20 entry fee to get into the marina. This was the case. We each paid the $8 Navajo fee earlier that day so we didn’t pay the $20. They don’t advertise this though.

I was on a bus tour group of 50 who only offers the best excursions for their passengers. I didn't know what Antelope Canyon Boat Tour on Lake Powell even was but I like to be on any lake since we have many in Tennessee so I signed up. This was the highlight of my 6 day trip to the canyons. Each guest was given a headset with an audio description of the canyon so you know what you are viewing. Any child would find this adventure better than any ride at Disneyworld. You will be mesmerized every time the boat goes around the corner. The picture doesn't do it justice. Go to the bow of the boat and stand outside with your camera for best photos. Most people will be inside. There were 7 kayakers in the lake as it was smooth and clear and I would have loved to have been one of them. Another natural beauty in the USA
