Private Photography Boat Tours

Our guided photography boat tours are an excellent way to get on Lake Powell and experience some of this region's most magnificent canyons from the water's edge. Guests will enjoy being aboard a smaller boat with fewer passengers allowing them the ease and comfort of capturing iconic landscapes and scenery unique to this region. Below are sample routes with video and photos of associated points of interest.

2 Hour Antelope Canyon Photo Tour

This is a fairly slow paced ride with one-two sections where the boat will pick up the pace. After checking in with your captain at the dock, you'll embark on a journey through the open waters of Wahweap Bay, proceeding between the walls of Glen Canyon, then pass Glen Canyon Dam, and enter the water portion of Antelope Canyon aboard one of our 24ft. open bow boats. This 14mile loop takes approximately 2 hours. Pricing options include $159 per passenger or $899 for a private group of up to 6 passengers, (same price for 1-6 passengers).

4 - 8 hour Photography Boat Tours

Our 4 - 6 hour Photography Boat Tours provide the ability to access multiple canyons on the southern end of Lake Powell. In 4 hours, you would be able to not only see the points of interest on our 2hr tour, but the addition of seeing Navajo Canyon as well. Navajo Canyon is a longer and wider, with towering walls and geography that is slightly different from that found in Antelope Canyon. 

In 6 - 8 hours, you would be able to enjoy the scenes described above in addition to getting into Labyrinth Canyon, Face Canyon, West Canyon, and/or the open waters as far as Rock Creek. We do not take groups to Rainbow Bridge.


Because these are private excursions, there isn't a "set" pace or course to follow. We can go at your pace, spending the time as you desire. As the position of the sun moves throughout the day, so too will the lighting conditions change which causes a dramatic effect on the colors of the water and canyon walls.

Often times, people ask when the "BEST" time of day is to go on Lake Powell? If your goal is to get reflective photos of canyon walls, we recommend booking an early morning time. This us usually when the water is calmer. If you want photos of the glowing green color of the water, this can usually be seen during the summer months, June-August when the sun is high in the sky. For warmer tones, usually a late afternoon or early evening will provide glowing colors on the rocks and silhouettes of the monuments, mesas and buttes.

Another common questions is, "What if it rains?" One thing about this area is that summer storms are a regular occurence due to the annual monsoons that frequent this region. It is not uncommon to start the day with cloud cover and enjoy blue skies within a few hours, so what you see in the morning, doesn't necessarily predict what the rest of the day will be like. These storms are transient, they come and go and rarely last more than 20 minutes so we may have to delay a start time every now and then, but rarely do the rains result in us needing to cancel the whole day. Because we cannot control the forces of nature, it is impossible for us to predict what the weather will be like on the day of your reservation. Our captains closely monitor hourly radar and weather updates to determine if conditions are deemed safe or unsafe and when to cancel excursions. We are out on the water most days of the year, rain or shine. Reasons that we might cancel excursions include strong winds, HEAVY rain, lightening, or if there are mechanical issues with our boats. Desert storms transform this area into an absolute wonderland! If you happen to be one of the lucky groups that is on the water that gets to witness desert rain and the appearance of a rare spectacular waterfall, you will be wonderstruck! For more questions about weather and cancellations, please see our cancellation policy.

What to expect after making my reservation?

Upon making your reservation, you will receive a confirmation email containing all of the necessary information for checking in, where to go, what to bring, etc. It contains a Google Navigation Pin that will take you to this parking location in addition to this bird's eye view map showing the parking location. As shown on the map, the email where to walk, and where to check-in with your captain. **PLEASE NOTE the distance from the parking lot to the boat dock is approximately 400 yards. Please consider the physical health/mobility of passengers in your group as all will be required to walk this distance in addition to being physically able to step into and off of the boat. There is not a shuttle service available. You may find that you have questions so we invite you to check out the FAQ's on our website. Of course, if your questions aren't answered on the website, don't hesitate to email or call us and we'll do our best to answer them for you.

How To Check in?

On the day of your excursion you will need to check in with your captain at the boat docks directly below the Wahweap Public Launch Ramp 15 minutes before start time. ​It takes approximately 20-30min to drive to the check-in location from Page, so be sure to plan accordingly. Follow this navigation pin that will take you to the parking lot of the Castle Rock Outlet Store. This is where you will park, (if there is not available parking in this lot, feel free to find a spot for "single car" parking close by.) There is a public restroom in the East corner of this parking lot, diagonally across from the Castle Rock Outlet Store. Once parked, follow the directions on the map that show you will need to walk down to the bottom of the launch ramp. Immediately below the launch ramp are two floating docks. The LEFT dock is where you will meet your captain. Look for the boat with the neon green flag displayed.

**One thing to note: Upon entrance into the Glenn Canyon National Recreation Area, ALL vehicles will have to purchase an entrance pass or show their previously purchased national park pass. If planning to visit more than two national parks, you will save money purchasing an Annual National Park Pass.
