Lake Powell – Points of Interest
Antelope Canyon is located to the left of the Antelope Point Marina launch ramp. It is approximately 0.5 miles to the entrance of the canyon. (Ideal for Seadoos and kayaks, still cool for boats).
Navajo Canyon is found 9.5 miles up lake from the Glen Canyon Dam and is located on the east side of the main channel. This canyons display of Navajo sandstone is incomparable and can be enjoyed for 16 miles.
From Wahweap, Antelope Point, and Dangling Rope, travel north. From Bullfrog and Halls Crossing, travel south. Proceed to the mouth of Forbidding Canyon (buoy 49), where a floating sign on the right marks the canyon entrance. Follow the canyon about 2 miles (4 km) to another sign that points the way left through a narrow passage. Proceed with caution! Beyond the wakeless buoys, go slowly so that no wakes, or waves, are made. A courtesy dock is available for short-term docking while people make the 2 mile (3.2km) walk to the bridge.
The Sand King is a huge pile of sand that extends from the top of a cliff all the way down to the water. It’s a bit of a strenuous (but short) hike to the top, but then you can roll, jump, dive, or otherwise make your way down this gigantic and steep pillow of fine white sand. Conveniently, the Sand King is located directly across Wahweap Bay at south Lake Powell, from the Wahweap Marina. It is one canyon to the west of Ice Cream Canyon. There is a superb sandy beach at the mouth of the canyon where you can park your houseboat, and then you can either walk or drive a smaller boat back into the small canyon with the dune. Be careful, and have fun!
