Cathedral Canyon and Kayak Tour on Lake PowellCathedral Canyon & Kayak Tour Package
Take a beautiful stroll in the pleasant and beautiful Navajo Sandstone we’ll take you on a nature hike, with a setting to take photographs without the monstrous crowds in your way. Come with us and see the beauty of the grand majestic Cathedral Canyon with Antelope Slot Canyon Tours By Chief Tsosie! Your native guide will point out various facts about the animal life in the area and the native plants once used by their ancestors long ago and what the local Navajo people still use today. You will also appreciate the fantastic rock formations that this canyon tour offers (Cathedral Hall, Four Sisters, Thumb Rock, Pucket Rock, and of course the astonishing slot canyons of this region). This adventure provides a personal touch to explore the beauty of the Navajo land. This canyon is located one mile from Chief Tsosie’s house and is more adventurous and provides a personal touch to explore mother nature and the beautiful tapestry sandstone walls of the Navajo land.
You'll then join us on a magnificent kayak tour through Antelope Canyon. On this relaxing paddling trip we'll kayak under massive cliffs and past beautiful red rock formations and amazing photographic opportunities. During the warmer months of Summer and Fall when Lake Powell is as warm as a bath, we’ll soak in the water with a relaxing swim or cliff jumping if you’re feeling adventurous. Exploring Lake Powell through this package tour with Chief Tsosie and Kayak Powell is the most personal and intimate way that you could experience the great Lake Powell and Navajo canyons in the way you’ve always imagined it to be.

Meeting Location:
  • You will first meet your guide at Chief Tsosie’s shop location in Page: 55 S. Lake Powell Blvd. Please check in at least 30 minutes before departure time. After the hiking portion of your tour you will drive over to the Kayak Powell location at 816 Coppermine Rd, Page Arizona approximately 1.5 miles.

Expected Distance Paddled and Requirements:
  • 4 to 5 miles (6.5 - 8km) of paddling is typical, but it depends on the water level of the lake.
  • Wavy conditions are common on the 2nd half of this tour.
  • This tour is suitable for those who have a moderate level of physical fitness, including children.
  • In general, the morning tour offers the calmest conditions, so it is recommended for weaker or younger paddlers if your schedule allows. In the afternoon winds often increase. The tour will not set out in unsafe conditions, but more effort may be required on the afternoon tours.
  • It is required that participants have enough upper body strength to re-enter a capsized kayak quickly, which is a bit more difficult than exiting the deep end of a pool without using a ladder. This is critically important for spring tours, when the water is cold.
  • Common destinations include Antelope Canyon, cliff areas, a scenic paddle, and occasional wildlife.
  • Sit on top kayaks are generally used for the half day tour. Scupper stoppers (plugs to keep the inside of the boat drier) are used in March, April, October, and November on the Sit on top kayaks.
  • Adults will be given single kayaks unless specified otherwise. Children will be given double kayaks. Strong teenagers can request a single kayak. If windy conditions are forecast, the guide may require use of double kayaks.
  • The tour will include opportunities from June-October, a chance to swim.
  • There are simple bathroom facilities at the parking lot. A "wag bag" style camp toilet will be provided during the tour.
  • Water bottles and water refills are provided. Tour includes all kayak equipment.
  • Are you a solo paddler? You may join an existing tour.
  • Glen Canyon National Park entrance fee included! $25 per vehicle value.
  • Tickets DO NOT include an $8 Navajo Nation Permit (NPP) fee. Please bring cash to pay the Navajo Nation Permit with Navajo Parks at the entrance.
