Lake Powell Private Boating Excursions
Our full and half-day private boating excursions on Lake Powell are likely to be the highlight of your trip. This is a perfect way to meet the interests of everyone in your group- those who love the wind in their hair and spectacular views and others who enjoy the thrill of water sports and swimming adventures. Perhaps the best thing about our boating excursions is that we take all of the work out of it so that everyone can have fun, even Dads.
Our private boating excursions are customizable to each group. There is no "set" course so you get to determine how you'd like to spend your time on the water. If multiple members of your group are interested in water sports, the captain will spend more time facilitating those interests than say, sightseeing through the canyons. If you want to split the time between sightseeing and water sports, we'll make sure you get to see some of the highlights in this area, while also ensuring there is time for water activities. Some people have specific sights they want to see while on the lake. Some canyons can take a few hours to get to so it is always a good idea to email or call with your preferences so we can provide recommendations for the length of time you would need to book in order to see specific sights. Our "Sample Excursions" page has information for canyons that can be visited in our various booking lengths of time.
How many people can we bring? For groups with more than six passengers, we ask that you call so that we can make proper arrangements to facilitate your group.
What is included: the boat, your captain, gas, life vests, towels, complimentary non-alcoholic beverages, and all of the equipment for water sports: wake boards, surf boards, water skiis, ropes, (knee board and wet suits available upon request.)
Where do we start from? All of our excursions start at the public docks directly below the Wahweap Public Launch ramp.
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, where to walk, and where to check-in with your captain. 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 location. There is a public restroom in the East corner of this parking lot. Once parked, you will need to walk down the launch ramp onto the LEFT dock where you will meet your captain. Look for the boat with the neon green flag.
**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.
Guests are welcome to bring any snacks or drinks they would like, (we ask that you avoid bringing items that could stain fabric/upholstery.) We provide complimentary non-alcoholic beverages which include, water, sparkling waters, Gatorade, and sodas. We also provide towels for you to use throughout your excursion.
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. Storms blow through this area fairly often. 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. During our summer months, monsoons frequently pass through this area. They usually last only about 30 minutes. In such cases, we will not cancel reservations, but rather delay the start time of an excursion and notify guests. In the event that a monsoon is likely to last longer than 30 minutes, excursions will be cancelled with the option of rescheduling or receiving a refund. 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.
Tipping: It is customary to tip your captain 10-20%
