Description:

Colorado River Discovery offers the most fantastic one day rafting trips...

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!

The staff was very apologetic and worked quickly to get us booked for the next day, with a full refund of the cost difference! We ended up taking the morning half day trip the next day, and loved it!

The tour, for us, was part of a day-long trip from Tusayan, just outside of Grand Canyon National Park and included a flight over the Grand Canyon to Page, then a short ride to Antelope Slot Canyon for a photographic tour and then back to Page for the rafting tour. You can also drive independently to the town of Page... More

From start to finish, including the online reservation and reminder process, this was an extremely positive experience. The welcoming and check-in process was smooth, and the details were explained clearly. The rafting adventure was easy and highly enjoyable, especially for my wife who had some limited mobility. The staff were there to assist, if needed. Our guide was polite, pleasant,... More

The Kayak guide was friendly, direct, knowledgeable. We never kayaked before. It was a challenged, but they let us figure it out. Aside from the weather, It was... More

I have always wanted to take a rafting trip and we had the pleasure of experience the Colorado River Discovery this week. It was an awesome day and so much fun! Everything from our lunch which was provided to the excursion down the river was fabulous. Rafting was on my bucket list and I was a fabulous experience!!!

Raft down the river below Glen Canyon Dam to Horseshoe Bend then motor back. A stop was included to view Native American petroglyphs. Well organized, food provided (if you select the option) was very good. Our guide, Brooke, was well informed, and worked well with the group. Kudos to the company, and Brooke was just awesome!
