half day float trip in Page

Booking today for our float trip. All advice on this forum says do the morning trip because of the heat. Is it really that bad? We do not like to get up early on vacation and we are used to the Texas heat but do not want to be miserable. What to do????

It's not that bad in the afternoon. If you'd prefer to sleep in, do it.

Bring a towel or a bandanna that you can dunk in the river (where the water is a constant 48 degrees Fahrenheit) and lay across your shoulders, lap, etc. Makes an effective evaporative cooler.

Arriving in Page from GC - driving over on a Sunday(August). Spending one night then departing - driving to Las Vegas(straight through).

Would you do the 1/2 day raft trip on Sunday 11am trip after driving over from GC or the early raft trip the next morning at 7:30am but then have to get right off and start the drive to vegas - is it a 5 hour drive? Staying on the strip in vegas.

any thoughts? thanks.

There is no 11AM trip in August.

Follow the advice I gave in your other post. Spend one night at GCNP and two at Page. Do the 7:30AM raft trip. That will give you time for other attractions at Page too.
