Expected Distance Paddled and Physical Requirements:
- 5 to 7 miles (8 - 11 km) of paddling is typical, but the guide will match the trip pace and itinerary to best match the group's abilities and interests.
- A 30 minute hike is typical, but not required. Moderate climbs are involved and the sandstone can be slick when descending.
- This tour is suitable for those who have a moderate level of physical fitness, including children.
- For safety reasons, it is required that participants have enough upper body strength to re-enter a capsized kayak quickly, which is a bit more difficult than exiting the deep end of a pool without using a ladder. This is especially important in spring, when the water is cold. Participants should also have an average level of flexibility, otherwise getting into and out of a kayak will be difficult.
- While the specific itinerary will be determined by the ability and interests of the group and weather conditions, the most common itinerary is as follows: after meeting at the Lone Rock parking lot, you'll make your way to the beach, pack your belongings (dry bags available for rent depending on availability), load the kayaks, and get a quick orientation. After launching at Lone Rock beach, you will cross Wahweap Bay to visit the beautiful rock formations of Lone Rock Canyon and paddle into a slot canyon. From there you'll paddle to your campsite and setup camp. You should have time to relax or go for a swim before dinner. After dinner you'll enjoy a fire and usually be treated to an amazing night sky. The next morning you'll wake up to a delicious breakfast and get a mug of cowboy coffee if that's what you need! After loading up the boats you'll glide beneath the massive cliffs Lone Rock as you make your way back to Lone Rock beach. The trip ends at the Lone Rock beach parking lot.
- Most people find the camping experience very comfortable, even novices. The desert is an ideal place to camp because there are generally no biting bugs (really!), comfortable night time temperatures, little chance of rain, spacious camps, and amazing skies. Our Thermarest Basecamp sleeping mats and Northface sleeping bags will give you a good night's rest. Our camp toilet is easy to use and hygienic. There is little reason to be scared of snakes or scorpions - they are rarely seen and easy to avoid with some simple precautions.
- Single kayaks will be used for adults unless requested otherwise. Children will be paired with and adult in a double kayak. Strong teenagers may request a single kayak. When the water is cold in spring or when windier conditions are expected, the guide may mandate the use of double kayaks for increased safety.
- From June-October, tours include time for swimming.
- There are bathroom facilities at the parking lot. Dry Bags available for rent upon availability.

If you wish to enjoy an alcoholic beverage, please choose non-glass containers and beverages that taste ok at room temperature, such as box wine.
