Ultimate Overnight Expedition

Rent a 16-foot unsinkable flat bottom Hog Island boatwork craft to power your travel upstream to the base of the dam. Great fishing (30,000 fish per/mile), and incredible towering Navajo Sandstone cliffs. Camp overnight at 6-mile beach (composting toilets) and visit ancient petroglyphs and watch the most incredible sunset of your life. In the morning take your time and, travel by SUP boards and inflatable kayaks while one person rows the motor boat gently downstream from eddy to eddy back to the Lee's Ferry Ramp


Sea Kayaks for Upstream

Inflatable Kayaks

If you want to be very sure that you always stay afloat in the boat, try an inflatable kayak. They are fun, easy to paddle, carry loads of gear easily and unsinkable. If you wish to paddle from the dam down to Lee's Ferry Beach.
