As an authorized concessioner of Grand Canyon National Park, we specialize in 6-16 day raft trips through majestic Grand Canyon. Choose from rafting options that include the Classic Adventure (a non-motorized trip consisting of both oar rafts and paddle rafts, previously named our hybrid trip), the All-Paddle Adventure and the Motor Adventure. Consider one of our specialty trips such as the Yoga in the Canyon, Hiker’s Discovery, or the Dories and Stories trip. Are you an experienced kayaker? Maybe you are a perfect fit for a kayak trip.

Since 1974, our guests have been telling us their Grand Canyon rafting trip on the Colorado River is one of the best vacations ever. Their testimonials attest; you will see places you have never seen before, do things you’ve never done before, and awake every morning to beauty so breathtaking the images will last a lifetime. With an emphasis on adventure, hiking, education, safety and fun, we invite you to bring your family, friends or come solo.

We hire the top people in the industry including both our support personnel and our River Guides. Our guides have an average of 14 years of experience with a wide range of skills and they come from a diverse array of backgrounds.

Under third-generation family operation, we take a lot of pride in our long-standing history of providing high quality and experiential Grand Canyon rafting adventures. We have an Environmental Management Plan that guides us to operate our trips with the least environmental impact possible including energy conservation, waste reduction and recycling.
