7 am Early Morning 5 Hour Tour with Hike:
We paddle from Antelope Point into Antelope Canyon where you will be floating in a canyon with beautiful red rock cliffs surrounding you! If time allows, there will be a hike at the back of the canyon where you can see part of this amazing slot canyon!
Lake Powell is world-renowned for its incredible slot canyons, but few have seen it from the water.
This tour is a 5 hour, approximately 6 mile (9.66 km) round trip paddle through the entire length of the water section of Antelope Canyon with an approximately 2 mile (3.2 km) hike at the back, depending on conditions and on water levels. The best experience is the early tour due to weather and boat traffic! That is why we go early.
Water and snacks provided. Hiking shoes, athletic shoes or sturdy sandals are a must. Tours include time for swimming and relaxing in the warm sun, time and weather permitting.
Swimming in the lake is amazing! Bring your swimsuit. Conditions and water temperature permitting. Nothing to fear in the water- nothing that bites or stings!
How it works:
We will meet you at the shop at 6:15 am (PACIFIC TIME) which is 45 minutes prior to your start time where 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. 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.
We offer only small supervised groups, and you can use a kayak or paddleboard- your choice! Just let us know when you reserve which you prefer.
PLEASE READ: Due to the distance and time restraints, this tour is only for people who have paddleboarded before, not for beginner paddleboarders. All levels of kayakers are welcome!
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.
The Navajo Sandstone here is unlike anywhere else! We do our tours early in the morning so you get to see it at its best!
*Lake Powell is managed by the Glen Canyon National Park. The Park encompasses the entire lake. All activities in the National Park are subject to the National Park entrance fee. Payment is made at any Park entrance station and is good for 7 days.
