Advice for one (or maybe two) day boat rental - where to go with the current lake levels?

So to preface: we had an…experience…last year with our rental houseboat/runabout boat, where both boats experienced total engine failures that caused both to be inoperable for like 80% of our trip. Aramark tried to tell us it was our fault the repairs weren’t faster because we “weren’t supposed to go further than buoy 22” except the folks at the Wahweap rental deck literally told us to go all the way up to West Canyon so 🤷🏻‍♀️ (we did get a decent refund from that chaos).

I digress…our friends don’t want to rent another houseboat until either the lake levels rise or we buy our own ski boats, but we wanted to come anyway this year, so we are doing a one day boat rental. We are curious if anyone has any recommendations for places to basically go day-camp…we want to leave Wahweap bay but do not want to go past West due to time.

Anyone know of any nice sandy, quiet beaches that will accommodate a ski boat but not a houseboat (aka that will be open/free) north of Antelope marina but south of West Canyon?

The "Weekender" mini houseboat is available for one-day rentals: (Scroll down on this link):

Powerboats, Watercraft & Jet Ski Rentals - Wahweap & Bullfrog Marinas | Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas AZ & UT

As far as nice, sandy beaches, we found plenty in Gunsight.

Good luck,
Tiff

Try Navajo Canyon. There’s a nice small beach hiding in there.
