How it works:

We will meet you at the shop at 8:15 am where you will fill out your paperwork and we will give you a map and all the information for your adventure. You will then drive yourself from the shop to the lake. The drive is approximately 11 miles (17.7 km), where you will enter the park and meet your guide. PLEASE NOTE: $30.00 National Park entry fee not included. This is per car, not per person, and is good for 7 days.* Transportation to the lake is not provided due to Park Service regulations. Reservations required.

Depending on the groups abilities we may paddle into the canyon, as time allows, then turn back and may still have time for swimming and checking out the area. There will be plenty of time for taking photos and enjoying the environment.

Swimming in the lake in the warmer months is amazing!


Bring your swimsuit. Nothing to fear in the water- nothing that bites or stings! Our water is very clear and warm in summer.


This is a great place to learn!



All times on our site and confirmations are in ARIZONA TIME (Summer time: Same time as Pacific Time; Winter time Same time as Mountain Time. – No Daylight Saving Time – Not Utah Time – Not Navajo Nation Time). Because the Utah State Line is less than 7 miles away, cell phone towers from Utah (and the surrounding Navajo Nation) often will be the wrong time! Do yourself a favor and do like the locals do: Manually set your cell phone to PHOENIX, AZ time.
