Houseboating Experience

Houseboating Experience

Your Home, Away From It All

Imagine all the comforts of home—comfy beds, great living space, a fully appointed kitchen and a solid sound system—on your private houseboat, surrounded by Lake Powell’s breathtaking scenery. One of the best things about houseboating is that even a first-time boater can learn how to pilot a houseboat after just a short lesson, taught by our expert staff. Once you’re underway, you’ll be off and exploring one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the country—home to 96 major side canyons and nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline.

A Place Like No Other

Your houseboat will become your base camp for Lake Powell’s unrivaled swimming, fishing, hiking (North Lake or South Lake), and water sports. Set against the surreal landscape of crystal-clear water and colorful canyons, peaks, and buttes, you’ll be on an adventure like no other—surrounded by scenery so unique it’s been used as settings for movies like MaverickGravity, John Carter, and Planet of the Apes.

Start Here, Go Anywhere

Following your own itinerary, your houseboat trip will begin and end at one of our exceptionally well-appointed marinas. During your trip your houseboat will be anchored to the shore in your own quiet paradise. You’ll spend your days exploring Lake Powell in a small watercraft, watching the landscape change with the sun from your houseboat, and splashing in the lake and relaxing aboard your houseboat while reconnecting with your favorite people.
