Long Description:
The M/V Canyon Explorer's trip to Rainbow Bridge National Monument starts at Wahweap Marina Resort near Page AZ.

The 4 hour trip to Rainbow Bridge takes you past amazing scenery on Lake Powell. After 90 minutes to hike out and enjoy the Rainbow bridge, it's time for the 4 hour return trip, and, on some days, a mail drop.

From the Lake Powell Resorts website: (visit link)

"Quite likely one of the most photographed geological wonder in the American West, Rainbow Bridge is a must-see during your Lake Powell visit.
• 5 ½ hours long**
• 2 hours each way
• 1 ½ hours at Rainbow Bridge National Monument

Due to the current projected lake levels, a walk/hike is required both to and from Rainbow Bridge for optimum viewing (total walking distance = 1 1/4miles).

**Due to the low lake levels, the Castle Rock Cut is currently closed. This tour will last approximately 7 - 7 ½ hours total."
