For whatever reason, any attraction, no matter how amazing, that requires huffing and puffing just to get there is simply not happening. Is there anything you can do that allows you to experience the best scenery Page, AZ, has to offer, where any walking required is more of a stroll than a hike?
On the Upper Antelope Canyon walking tour and the Antelope Canyon waterside boat tour, you’ll check off two of the Top Five sightseeing tours in the Lake Powell area, with minimal exertion required! Your day begins at Chief Tsosie’s Antelope Slot Canyon Tours in downtown Page, AZ. After check-in and a short safety briefing, you’ll board a custom-built touring coach equipped soft seats for passenger comfort, and a beefed up suspension for off-road adventures. After a 2-mile ride on a desert dirt track, you arrive at the entrance of Upper Antelope Canyon. A living work of art sculpted by flash flooding and blowing sand, Upper Antelope Canyon will envelop you in other-worldly light and swirling sandstone chambers. As the sun passes overhead, the colors of the rock walls change before your eyes, a kaleidoscope of earth tones, some too subtle to name. This branch of Antelope Canyon features a flat, even trail of 100 yards that is manageable for 95% of visitors. After approximately one hour in the canyon, you reboard your tour vehicle for the ride back to Page, AZ, where you receive instructions for taking part in the second half of your adventure, where you’ll discover a totally different aspect of Antelope Canyon: the waterside!

At Antelope Point Marina, you’ll check in at the tour boat desk at the top of the hill. Wait a minute, hill? What hill? There’s a hill? Relax, guest service attendants are standing by to give you a lift to the boat dock, where you’ll board an open-air tour boat and cruise up one of Lake Powell’s most beautiful side canyons. Towering sandstone walls rise above you, decorated in chocolate brown patina by millions of years of monsoon rains. Azure waters lap at the canyon walls as they come closer and closer together with each passing minute, until you can travel no further! Finally, you make the connection: this is where the very waters that carved Antelope Canyon complete their journey, joining with this immense reservoir that supplies life-giving water to millions of residents of the American Southwest. You had no idea that Antelope Canyon was this complex, and played such an important role in the Glen Canyon ecosystem, until you saw it from two very different perspectives.
After your Coast Guard-certified captain turns your tour boat around and drops you off back at the tour boat dock, you are welcome to linger at the Antelope Point Marina complex for as long as you wish. Grab lunch or a cocktail with a lakeside view at the marina restaurant, or pick up a memento of your visit for yourself or loved ones back home. Marvel at the state-of-the-art houseboats docked at the marina, or simply enjoy the sunshine and jaw-dropping scenery all around you. When you are ready to head back to the parking lot, simply ring for a guest service attendant, and a golf cart will be there to collect you in no time flat.
This experience is one that will live in your memory forever, with nary an aching muscle, or a moment’s inconvenience browsing multiple websites and hitting multiple walls of sold out tours. Book your seats today!
