Lake Powell is a paddler’s dream. With the majestic canyon walls and incredible slot canyons, it is unlike anywhere else on earth. We will take you to one of the world’s most amazing places to kayak here at Lake Powell- Antelope Canyon.
Antelope Canyon is world-renowned for its incredible slot canyon, but few have seen it from the water. We paddle from the Antelope Point Public Boat Ramp into the canyon where you will be floating in a deep canyon with beautiful red cliffs surrounding you. We will wind our way through the canyon then turn back and you get to see it from a whole new angle on the return. Each tour time offers different lighting and all are amazing!

How it Works:
We meet at the shop 45 minutes prior to your start time (for example, If your tour starts at 4:00 pm please be at our shop at 3:15 pm ARIZONA TIME). Here you will fill out your paperwork and we will give you a map and all the information for the tour. You will then drive yourself from the shop to the Antelope Point Boat Launch and meet your guide. The drive is approximately 11 miles (17.7 km), where you will enter the park and meet your guide. PLEASE NOTE: There is a $30.00 National Park entry fee not included in the tour price which is payable by cash or card at the Park entrance. 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.
About our Guides:
All our tour guides are professionally certified through the American Canoe Association (ACA) and the Professional Stand Up Paddle Association (PSUPA) for instruction, guiding, and water-safety. Each guide is first aid and CPR certified. Lake Powell Paddleboards and Kayaks holds a legal CUA Permit with Glen Canyon National Park Service.
TIME and TIME ZONE:
All times on our site and confirmations are in ARIZONA TIME (Summer: Same time as Pacific Time; Winter: 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.
