“Excellent Overnight Kayak Trip”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

I recently did the Labyrinth Canyon overnight trip with Kayak Lake Powell. A great, great trip and a great guide. You hop on a motor boat at the Antelope Point Marina and motor ~10 miles up the lake to one of the prettiest parts of Lake Powell and unload the boat there. We divided up the personal and camping gear into the kayaks and did a very leisurely 2 hour paddle into Labyrinth Canyon. We paddled up canyon till the water ran out, beached our kayaks and then hiked further up canyon to explore. Labyrinth becomes a progressively narrower slot canyon and is a great day hike. Once we got back to the boats, we paddled another hour to a beach where we pulled out for lunch. We explored the area on our own while the guide made lunch for the group. Back in the boats for a leisurely ~ 1 hour paddle to our campsite. We unpacked all the gear and setup camp. The guides provide the tent, sleeping bad, pad, food, drinks and all cooking gear and take care of food prep and cleanup. The kayaks themselves were very nice (a few were brand new) with lots of adjustments to optimize the seat for comfort. We spent the afternoon and evening exploring the area on our own and had a great dinner and campfire that night. The next morning we ate breakfast, broke down camp, loaded the kayaks and headed out. We kayaked for about an hour, got out to explore some islands, then kayaked another hour to the pickup point where the motor boat would pickup us and our gear and shuttle us back to Antelope Point. The scenery was spectacular, the locations we pulled out to explore were great, the pace of kayaking was great, the fact that the paddling sessions were nicely broken up with breaks for meals and exploring was great, the guide was great, the campsite was great, the food was great, the fact that they provide all the gear and food is great. All in all, a perfect adventure. Kayak Lake Powell was very organized and provided everything the group needed, know the area well, provided high quality kayaks, and provided great food. Highly recommended.

“Kayaking Lake Powell is a must!”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

If you love a good sunrise, a good paddle and a big breakfast, the all day paddle at Lone Rock is a must.

Whether its kayaking or local history you're wanting Jim knows his stuff. He also adapts each tour to meet the paddlers needs and strengths, ensuring you see as much as possible for your paddle power.

We like early mornings so chose the sunrise tour, the sun was coming up as we entered the water and headed for Lone Rock Canyon.

Whilst Jim cooked us a breakfast of eggs, bacon and hash with tomato salsa, we went off to explore the rocks and have a swim. We arrived back to freshly plunged coffee and a bag of cherries. The food was great and the view was amazing, such peaceful surroundings.

Next we paddled to Ice-cream Canyon wind cave that looked through to Wahweap Marina. We paddled, swam and chatted with Jim until it was time to head back and load up the kayaks.

We thoroughly enjoyed our kayak time in Lake Powell, seeing so much of it up close and personal was wonderful, and we can thank and highly recommend Jim at Kayak Lake Powell for our experience.

Thanks for a great morning.

“Great!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

My husband and I went to Lake Powell for our 24th wedding anniversary. My husband has some health problems and I was concerned about him kayaking. Kat assured us that he would be fine and let Jim know.
Not only was he fine, but Jim was patient, fun, considerate and we had a great time! He is an excellent guide, we took the am tour-he took us to a great spot for swimming and a 'rest'.....I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Great people, great trip!

“A fun filled day on the lake”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

We took the full day tour. Two of us, and another family of 3 with a child. Jim did a great job entertaining everyone, assisting weaker paddlers, and keeping us on schedule to see everything without feeling rushed. He provided a great lunch, perfectly accommodating our special dietary requests. It was a wonderful way to see the lake, and we will do it again next time we visit Page.
