Kayak Antelope Canyon

Antelope Point Public Launch Ramp - Search Nearby - Added by Sarah Giek

Distance: 5 miles roundtrip. Kayak while surrounded by sandstone canyon walls.

Antelope Canyon is perhaps the most well-known and most photographed slot canyon in the United States. But many people probably don’t realize that you can also kayak a portion of the canyon. Just five miles north of Lower Antelope Canyon on BIA Highway N22B is access to Lake Powell. From here, you can kayak the 2.5 miles from Antelope Point through Antelope Canyon. The water in the canyon eventually dries up, but you will pass through many twists and turns of the sandstone walls before reaching the end and turning around.

We chose to rent kayaks from Antelope Point Marina, but there is also a public boat ramp where you can launch your own. If you plan on renting, I would suggest calling ahead to make a reservation, especially during the busy summer season. Keep in mind that Lake Powell is in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, so you will have to pay a fee to enter (or bring your America the Beautiful Park Pass).

Beautiful!

probably one of the cooler things I’ve done. We kayaked all the way to the very end of the lake inside the canyon, which was beautiful. We beached our kayaks in the narrow canyon and walked in quite a ways. It looks a lot like antelope canyon, but we didn’t encounter one person and we were able to explore all we wanted. I would highly recommend this for those of you who would like to avoid tourists.

Awesome

I took my mom on a road trip and this was an awesome experience for her. It's easy, and absolutely beautiful. It's also not too long, so worth it! either bring your own kayak or get a tour from Page AZ.

Gorgeous Slot Canyon

Live near this for a few years. Antelope canyon has gorgeous views and is peaceful to go through. Beware though, don't be in the canyon during a down pour. There are chances of flash flooring.
