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!

I would like to thank CRD for an amazing anniversary adventure! My husband and I booked two trips, the slot canyon tour, and the 1/2 day river float trip.

I had scheduled the morning off road Hummer Slot Canyon tour and the afternoon rafting trip. When we got there we were informed that the rafting trip had to be canceled due to heavy winds and they felt it would be unsafe. I was a little upset because it threw off my plans for the next day however the staff... More

Vistas, wildlife and the gentleness of the Glen Canyon piece of the majestic Colorado River created an unforgettable experience. Brent, our guide, enhanced the surroundings with knowledge, love of the river and fun attitude. He even jumped into the icy water fully clothed to convince my husband that "real men" and not just kids could survive the plunge. His delightful... More

A local had recommended we check out horse shoe bend on the rim. Bit of a hike through thick fine sand, but the view was well worth it. Next we made the decision to go down into the canyon and ride the Colorado. Our great hotel clerk at Page Courtyard was awesome and booked the next available river ride that... More

Our guide, Brent, was superb. Great humour, knowledge and rafting skill. Saw Bighorn sheep, blue herons and ospreys, swam in the Colorado and enjoyed views of Glen Canyon and the dam.

We took the 1/2 day afternoon float, and really enjoyed it. I wish I would have known there would be a swimming opportunity, I would have worn something different. That's the only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 rating. The trip was very scenic; however it was a little hot. One suggestion would be to go... More

Highlight of our trip so far! Like everyone else it is an amazing sight and fun relaxing safe experience. I think the trip was made by our guide Lori. Funny, very personable, knowledgable and engages the group with facts, stories, and legends. She loves what she does and it showed!

We had an awesome adventure on both of the tours we did through Colorado River Discovery. We did their Slot Canyon tour which was done as a small group. We felt we had a personal touch and had the place to ourselves. The tour was informative and entertaining. We also did their calm water rafting trip and it was fantastic... More

Our guide was good, the scenery amazing. My husband and I did the full day ride, with transportation back from Lee's Ferry via coach bus. This is definitely a float, no rapids, and I did feel a bit sorry for some teens who wanted a bit more thrill in the river adventure. While it does say they provide water, I... More

This is a great trip for families, and couples to take on a large raft trip on the Colorado River. The guides are friendly and keep the trip interesting. The trip takes you to Horseshoe Canyon and back to the dam for your bus ride back to town. For those who are brave enough you can go for a dip... More
