Colorado River Discovery. This respected outfitter offers waterborne tours, including a 5½-hour guided rafting excursion down a calm portion of the Colorado River on comfortable, motorized pontoon boats ($85). The scenery—multicolor-sandstone cliffs adorned with Native American petroglyphs—is spectacular. The trips are offered twice daily from May through September, and once a day in March, April, October, and November. The company also offers full-day rowing trips along the river, using smaller boats maneuvered by well-trained guides ($161). These trips—offered Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday—are quieter and more low-key, and provide a more intimate brush with this magnificent body of water. The above prices exclude a $6 per person river-use fee. And there's also a combination tour that includes rafting on the Colorado in the morning and kayaking on Lake Powell in the afternoon ($194), and a rafting tour through a slot canyon ($193). 130 6th Ave., Page, AZ, 86040. 888/522–6644. www.raftthecanyon.com. From $85 per person.
