Antelope Canyon Tours by Carolene Ekis is Navajo Indian Owned and is licensed by the Navajo Indian Tribe to offer tours into Upper Antelope Canyon.
March 1 to September 30. Summer months our Photographic Tour departs at 11:30 AM this tour will get you to the canyon prior to noon to capture the shafts of lights coming down into the canyon for the first hour (weather permitting). The second hour colors are more vibrant (red, blue and purple). You will be in the canyon for approximately 2 hours to photograph and experience Antelope Canyon. Total tour time is 2 ½ hours long.
There is no hiking or climbing involved, the canyon floor is level for the most part which makes for easy walking.
After your two hours your guide will return you to Page.
When spaces run out we also offer a Split Tour: Going out on two 1 1/2 hour tours Twice in the same day - Do know this -does not- mean you will be left at the canyon without a guide, you are taking two of our Sightseer's tours to the same location on the same day. You can join either of our tour times (so long it is available), this is another way to capture two different colors/glows in the canyon please inquire about the prices for the Split Tour.
October 1 to February 28 Winter months our Photographic tour departs at 9:30 AM. During these months the shaft of lights do not occur as the sun is traveling more over the southern hemisphere. Colors during these months are more pastel (pinks, yellow, peach and orange).
Abstract and black and white photography will find all times slots excellent.
Departure times: 11:30 AM / 1:30 PM - March to September
An experienced guide / driver will take you to the Upper Antelope Canyon. If you need basic information for settings up your equipment, your guide can answer your questions. This is not a Photo Workshop.
Once inside the canyon during summer months your guide will assist you in finding the best lighting/glow in the canyon. Everyone on tour must stay with your guide, not only is this a rule from the Navajo Parks but it's the best way to capture the highlights of the canyon.
If you would like some camera shooting tips please ask for Ryan while you're in our office.
Suggested Equipment to take along is a TRIPOD (mono-pod if you are on Split Tour), small pen light to view settings on your camera, extra memory/film, batteries, and CABLE RELEASE or remote for Camera if you plan on making timed exposures.
