RIVER CONDITIONS

Class I Boating Pristine and Peaceful

All boating in the GCNRA from Lee's Ferry to the Dam is a smooth water float. You cannot continue downstream of Lee's Ferry! The total run from the dam is 16 miles in length (overnight) and 10 miles from Petroglyph Beach down ( Our suggestion for a day trip).  Day trips from the Petroglyph Beach down should take between 4-6 hours with lunch and a hike.  If you would like a shorter run just talk to the captain on the way up:)

WHY RENT WITH US?

Everything we do at Kayak the Colorado is geared towards providing our customers with a unique personal experience. Kayak the Colorado is a small business owner operated.  Bobby and Brady Answer the phones, Captain the boat, and provide special knowledge for an adventure that fits your individual needs. Brady has been renting kayaks at Lee's Ferry and Grand Canyon for over 20 years.  Have questions give him a holler.

CAMPING OVERNIGHT ?

For overnighters we suggest taking our backhaul service upstream from Lee's Ferry to the dam, where folks can paddle downstream to any one of the 5 camps along the river with composting toilets, and stay overnight for a beautiful night under the stars.  Composting toilets clearly mark out camps, always camp with the Leave No Trace Principles.  Pack it In ~ Pack it Out!  Currently there are no permits necessary for camping if you paid the entrance fee, or have a national parks pass.

LIKE TO KAYAK AND FISH?

The Glen Canyon Recreation Area is a world class tail water fishery!  You will need to carry your fishing permit which can be purchased below.  The Colorado River does have a few special considerations like No Live Bait, and crimped barbs to name a few.  The AZ Game and Fish Websites has all the details if you like to fish.

KAYAK HORSESHOE BEND

For Day Trips we suggest utilizing our backhaul service from the Parking Lot at Lee's Ferry to Petroglyph Beach just upstream of  Horseshoe Bend, where folks can then spend the next 4-6 hours Kayak Horseshoe Bend and back to their awaiting car at Lee's Ferry.  We will pickup your kayak at the ramp when you return to Lee's Ferry:). After you book we will supply all the directions for a fabulous day on the water.

HAPPY TIMES ON THE RIVER

"Brady and Bobby were AWESOME! I thoroughly enjoyed my canoeing adventure! They were super flexible and understanding with our times and really communicative. They even called me prior to my trip to give me some additional information I needed. Super friendly and knowledgeable about not just the river, but also the history of the area. My friend and I really enjoyed getting to know the history behind everything. I couldn't recommend this company more! Truly an awesome family run company and I will definitely be back when I'm in town!"
