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!

We took a very comfortable and fun morning trip. Afternoons get hot! Beautiful views and we learned about the history of the area. Our guide was passionate about the history of the area. The guides interacted well with the participants. It was a fun morning!

Price could definitely improve to make it a bit more affordable, but the experience is great. Our children loved it. We got a bit wet but it's expected. Guides are friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely do it again

Hi. I believe there are two trips in summer, one at 7am and the other at 10.30am and I was just trying to decide which one to take. Does it really get very hot? We will be there around the 29-30th of May. Do I need to make the reservations beforehand(4pax) or can I do it when I get to Page? Many thanks!
