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).

Awesome Experience

I had a chance to do this last weekend and it was a blast. At the back of the canyon we beached our kayaks and hiked farther up. It gets pretty photogenic up there and we didn't see any other people the whole time. Thanks for sharing!
