Owner description: 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!

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.

Great guide, EZ, was thoughtful and contemplative which was appropriate for the atmosphere. Float through Glen Canyon on the Colorado River, stop and see rock drawings, swing around horseshoe bend, motor back. Great views and gorgeous day. We did the half day rafting, it was plenty, but they do offer camping trips as well. I'd love to do that someday.

This was such a fun day on the River. Only did the half, but well worth it to spend a few hours looking at such amazing landscape and hearing stories of the area. The staff was on top of it, and they have a great cafe you should get lunch at even if you are not going on the river. Highly recommend it.

Colorado River Discovery offers many tour options. We booked the AM slot canyon/PM raft tour. Unfortunately, it was cold and rainy, but we still had a good time. We took an open-air hummer to the canyon. Guide James was very informative and seemed to be having as good a time as we were. Tour included a box lunch back at the center. After lunch, we took a bus to the river where we boarded the pontoon boat/raft. Guide Nate was fun, and also very knowledgeable about the area.
