Kayaking Lake Powell

Lake Powell is a unique lake because not only is it between Utah and Arizona, it is also man-made and considered to be on the Colorado River. There are a bunch of different activities that you can do when you plan a trip to Lake Powell and kayaking is just one of them. Whatever you decide to do, you will want to make sure that you kayak Lake Powell.

Below are four different things you can do to make sure you enjoy your time when you kayak Lake Powell:

Go with a Tour Group

You may be a seasoned kayaker or have never gone kayaking in your life. Either way (or if you fit somewhere in between), taking a group tour while kayaking is an amazing experience. 

This is a great way to see the slot canyons of Antelope Canyon while also seeing Lake Powell. The people who have been to Antelope Canyon have probably just been hiking. Kayak Lake Powell and also Antelope Canyon is something not many people have done, allowing you a very special and unique experience with these tour groups.

Lake Powell is a great place to visit and there are reasons why so many locals keep going back to visit it every year. With online sites such as Airbnb, you may be able to rent out a boathouse and have some serious fun. You can bring your boat out to Lake Powell and go boat surfing or kayak Lake Powell. Camping and RVs are also options if you want some time away from the lake during the evenings.

Visit Multiple Sites

The great thing about Lake Powell is that it is fairly close to a lot of different beautiful sites. If you want to get out and see neighboring sites, try to find out what is available beforehand. There are several canyons nearby such as Antelope Canyon. You can kayak Lake Powell and end up kayaking into Antelope Canyon. Take a day or two to do some hiking around the local canyons. While there is a lot to do, do not try and stuff it all into one day. This is a vacation and should be relaxing and rejuvenating. 


Let yourself become a child again. Get curious when you are out exploring these beautiful creations and allow yourself to take it all in. Be sure to feel the sun on your face and the waves beneath your kayak. Go see if there are food tours available in the surrounding towns and try some local favorites. 

Make sure you get out of your comfort zone, whether that is kayaking Lake Powell to Antelope Canyon or meeting up with a tour group and meeting new people. This will allow you to have a memorable and enjoyable vacation.
