You can do a lot with a rental boat at Lake Powell. Trips to Rainbow Bridge are possible as well as exploring the many canyons. For the adventurous, camping on the hundreds of sandy beaches may be a terrific way to experience the lake.

Although no special licenses are required, you should be familiar with and observe all basic boating safety rules and regulations. Much of Lake Powell lies in Utah, however, portions near Glen Canyon Dam and Wahweap Marina are in Arizona. Regulations may vary depending on your location and the rules given here are from the State of Utah Boating Laws and Rules. It is by no means comprehensive and you should familiarize yourself with the regulations before your vacation. For the complete booklet, contact information is listed below.

If your boat is registered in another state and has not been in Utah more than 14 days during any calendar year, you do not have to re-register your boat in Utah. You do not have to register sailboards, but sailboats do require registration. Sailboats don't do well at Lake Powell, primarily because of the unpredictable winds. To our knowledge, you cannot rent sailboats in Page. Kayaks are available for rent by two businesses.

A personal flotation device (type I, II, or III) of proper size is required for each person on board. The PFD must be in serviceable condition and readily accessible. Boats 16 feet or more in length must also have a type IV "throwable" flotation device (ring) that is in easy reach of the operator or passengers. Each person being towed on a kneeboard, tube, waterskis, etc. must be wearing a properly fitting PFD. Riders of personal watercraft or sailboards must also have a PFD. Children 12 and under must wear a type I, II or III PFD when the boat is operating, unless they are in the enclosed cabin of a boat 19 feet or longer.

If your boat is not equipped with a toilet, you will be required to use a portable potty if you camp overnight on Lake Powell within 1/4 mile of the Lake in areas where no toilet facilities exist. Potties may be dumped at marina dump stations.

Bow riding is not allowed at Lake Powell.
