Glen Canyon Rafting Half Day & Full Day

Our half and full day smooth water trips are an excellent option for those who are short on time yet want to experience rafting on the Colorado river. On our 1/2 and 1 day motorized trip options, you'll be surrounded by the majestic canyon walls that connect the Glen Canyon and Grand Canyon. Half Day raft trips on the Colorado River are offered between March 2 and October 31, 2020. Currently, Full Day motor raft trips have not yet been confirmed for 2020 by the National Park, so at this time we can only book 1/2 day options. These float trips begin in Page, Arizona and put in at the base of the Glen Canyon Dam. Both our half and full day raft trip options travel 15.5 river miles to Lees Ferry in Marble Canyon, an imaginary line where the Grand Canyon begins. The differnece between these two options is that the full day will float slightly longer periods of time without the motor propelling the raft. Please see below for pricing on 1/2 and 1 day raft tours.

About The Rafts

These motorized pontoon rafts comfortably seat up to 22 passengers and run on quiet, clean and fuel efficient outboard Honda marine motors. There will be plenty of moments when you’ll quietly float down the river with the motor turned off, while your guide takes you back in time with stories of this historic and magnificent canyon.


Because this is a smooth water trip with no rapids, lifejackets which will be provided for all, are optional for adults however children 12 and younger must wear a lifejacket at all times while on the raft.
