Half day (3 - 3.5 hours) guided kayak tour starting from Lone Rock beach. Superb variety. Paddle beneath massive cliffs and glide into a quiet side canyon. Hike up to an overlook for fantastic scenery and, if you're lucky, bighorn sheep. Enjoy amazing swimming spots in the warmer months. Great for children. Calmest and coolest in the morning, beautiful colors at sunset. Meeting times vary by month in order to give you the best experience possible. We know when it's best because we paddle everyday! Tour length may vary depending on Lake Powell water levels and your paddling experience.

Scheduled Tour Times:
- 8:15am Arizona Time
- 12:15pm Arizona Time
- 3:30pm Arizona Time
- All times are stated as Arizona Time, which is the same as Pacific Time unless you are visiting from early November to mid March.
- You will meet your guide at our shop location in Page: 816 Coppermine Rd, Page Arizona then follow your guide in your vehicle to the Lone Rock parking lot, which is about a 20 minute drive West of Page. Directions will also be provided in your confirmation email.
- 4 to 5 miles of paddling is typical (6.5-8km).
- This tour is suitable for just about anyone who has a moderate level of physical fitness, including children.
- In general, the morning tour offers the calmest conditions, so it is recommended for weaker or younger paddlers if your schedule allows. In the afternoon winds often increase. The tour will not set out in unsafe conditions, but more effort may be required on the afternoon tours.
- 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 critically important for spring tours, when the water is cold.
- The tour includes an optional 15-30 minute hike or swim that is suitable for those of average fitness. Footing is generally good, but caution should be exercised, especially during decents.
- Sandals or shoes you can get wet are required. The guide will attempt to keep your feet dry on early spring and late fall trips, when the water and conditions are colder.
- Common destinations include a slot canyon, various side canyons and cliff areas, scenic overlooks, and Lone Rock itself.
- Sit on top kayaks are generally used for the half day tour. Scupper stoppers (plugs to keep the inside of the boat drier) are used in March, April, October, and November on the Sit on top kayaks.
- Double kayaks will be given unless specified otherwise by the guide or requested by and adult.
- The tour will include opportunities to explore on land and, from June-October, a chance to swim.
- There are bathroom facilities at the parking lot. Dry Bags available for rent upon availability.
- Tour includes all kayak equipment.
