Colorado River Discovery offers the most fantastic one day rafting tours anywhere on the Colorado River. We provide motorized float tours near Glen Canyon Dam,  half day raft trips as well as full canyon river rafting tours on motor rafts that are perfect for the entire family (kids ages 4 and up). We also offer full day rowing trips for those looking for a more intimate experience on the Colorado River at a slower pace. If you’re short on time, we offer a Glen Canyon Postcard tour too!

While floating on 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.
