Antelope Canyon, particularly Upper Antelope Canyon, has become an unmistakable icon of the American Southwest, and a “must-do” on the itineraries of many visitors to the Grand Canyon, and Page, AZ. At a mere 100 yards in length, however, Upper Antelope Canyon represents only a fraction of this multi-faceted tributary of the Colorado River. Complimenting your Upper Antelope Canyon with a tour of its waterside is a wonderful way to appreciate the complexity of the Glen Canyon ecosystem, and the contribution Antelope Canyon makes to this vital reservoir. Now, it’s easier than ever to arrange these two unforgettable activities, in one simple step.
Your journey begins at Chief Tsosie’s Antelope Slot Canyon Tours* in downtown Page, AZ. After climbing aboard your custom-built safari truck, you’re bound for the Navajo Indian Reservation, and its crown jewel, Antelope Canyon! After a 2-mile off-road ride, you’ll be guided on foot through the heart of a living sculpture. Here, rushing flood waters and wind-blown sand have created an ethereal landscape of swirling rock formations, illuminated in soft, muted colors. The sun overhead bathes the chambers in seemingly divine light as it changes positions in the sky. Every moment is a masterpiece! Your Navajo guide will give you expert guidance on where to take good pictures and what camera settings will accentuate the scenery best. The trail through Upper Antelope Canyon is flat and even, which means this section of the canyon is accessible for people of all ages and most fitness levels.
After your 90-minute tour through Upper Antelope and returning to Chief Tsosie’s headquarters, you’ll be given directions to Antelope Point Marina and the second half of your adventure: your Antelope Canyon Waterside Boat Tour!* At the tour boat counter, a guest services attendant will transport you by golf cart to the tour boat dock, where you’ll meet your U.S. Coast Guard-certified captain and climb aboard. As you turn off the main channel of Lake Powell, the cool breeze of the water will invigorate you, and the towering sandstone will amaze you. The canyon walls, streaked by the watermarks of ancient storms, get closer and closer with each passing second, until eventually, the passage is so narrow, your boat can go no further. Here is where the flood waters that continue to erode the walls of Antelope Canyon end their journey in Lake Powell, and go on to become drinking, culinary, and irrigation water for thousands of residents of Arizona, Nevada, and California.
Upon returning to the tour boat dock, you are welcome to continue exploring Antelope Point Marina, perhaps grab a bite to eat, or pick up a souvenir to remember your trip by. You’ll make so many wonderful memories this day, and the best part was that the two tour components were set up with only one reservation.
