Class I Boating Pristine and Peaceful
All boating in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area 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 @ 10m 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:)
