1. Bighorn Canyon: 2-Hour Scenic Boat Tour
Upon arriving and checking in at Horseshoe Bend Marina, be immediately welcomed by the stunning red rock formations of the area. Depart promptly at the designated time of 10 AM or 2 PM. Once onboard, travel several miles downriver through America's 3rd largest canyon as you admire the breathtaking views. Enjoy the beautiful colorations of millions of years of geologic time on cliffs more than 1000 feet high. Get up close and personal with the abundant wildlife including bighorn sheep, the Canyon's namesake. Bring a camera because there will be plenty of perfect moments to take pictures. Discover how this little known area is a national treasure that is home to America's first designated wild horses known at the Pryor Mountain Wild Mustangs that now roam freely within the Park boundaries. The tours are narrated by a professionally licensed Captain who knows the area well. Learn about the diverse and deep history of the prehistoric and Native American peoples that have called this place their home for thousands of years. The canyon walls were once home to Paleo Indians that lived in the caves along the face of the Canyon and these places can only be seen from the boat. Halfway through the tour, the boat turns around and returns at Devil's Canyon almost 16 miles downriver. Upon the return, relax and enjoy a second half of the tour, as it looks completely different upon the return trip. At the end of the 2-hour tour, enjoy some food or refreshments as you sit on the deck of Horseshoe Bend Marina. Take in the views overlooking the water sipping your cold drink at the Rusty Anchor.
