Grand Canyon East Rim Travel Planning:
Lake Powell offers several options in the East Rim area.You can take a boat tour to Lower Antelope Canyon or Rainbow Bridge.You can rent a power boat or personal water craft for a day of fun on the lake.You can rent a houseboat and travel on the lake for a few days or a week.You can spend the night on wide beaches or in tiny coves.You can eat at one of two floating marinas on the lake or you can take a dinner cruise.You can explore the back canyons and do a little hiking.There are too many options to mention them all!
Last,but not least,you can spend time on the Colorado River by taking a tour from Glen Canyon Dam to Lee’s Ferry–a smooth water float trip that is guaranteed to relax you and keep you busy looking for crazy“pictures”on the canyon walls.You will float around Horseshoe Bend and perhaps see people at the rim enjoying the view.At about a thousand feet above you they will look very tiny.You will be able to spend about 3 hours on the river enjoying the scenery before you arrive at Lee’s Ferry where a bus will pick you up to return you to Page,Arizona.
You can also take your own boat(or rent a boat)to go fishing on the Colorado River.This is a famous trout fishing area.You will drive to Lee’s Ferry and launch your boat from there.Pay attention to where you are going because the Grand Canyon White Water rapids begin not far downstream from Lee’s Ferry.You can motor almost to Glen Canyon Dam and fish along the way.You can also camp at specified campgrounds along the river if you choose.
