To actually enjoy Powell, I recommend going on a little journey to Page. Wahweap and Antelope point are the 2 best marinas in Powell imo. I'd look at private boat rentals (same idea as air bnb) around page. Every once and a while there's someone renting out their nice new tow boat.
Too bad our weeks didn't line up, that would have been awesome! And thanks for the tips on the locations and marinas on the lake. Any suggestions on websites for the private boat rentals that are familiar with?
Thx!!

Find buoy 69 on the map, there is a floating bathroom and has good cell service. Escalates River arm is off the main channel here, Glass water all day and very little boat traffic and some cool places to camp.

Escalante River is a beautiful part of the lake - but a long ride from Wahweap/Antelope Point to look for smooth water. Usually good water to be had in Warm Creek, which is fairly close to the marinas - or one of the side canyons off of Padre Bay. Also good water up around Camel Rock area in the main channel.
Powell is extremely low this year and only projected to rise about 10’ - beware of rocks lurking just below the surface!

Will be at Lake Power on Sat 6/26 and Sun 6/27.
Definitely open to paying for the rides and hosting.

Or if anyone has recommendations for renting a boat for the day.

Thanks!

Given the low lake level this year and the short length of your visit, I would definitely consider just going on a boat tour to Rainbow Bridge and/Antelope Canyon. On the other day, just rent a deck boat from Antelope Point marina and go do some of your own exploring. The non-marina boat rental shops cannot launch the boat for you.

Just the advice of a 25 year Powell boater and houseboat owner.

You’re welcome. Ideally, do the boat tour first and let someone else drive while you follow along on a map noting places that you want to explore on your own the next day.

Boat tours go out of Wahweap Marina but I would only rent a personal boat from Antelope Point Marina to avoid having to launch.

Check out a map of Page, AZ and this should make more sense.

If you like bbq, Big John’s is a must.

D’oh! I didn’t even think of that. You’re correct, they’re still showing as not running. Fingers crossed that today’s MIT study will change that.
