Grand Canyon White Water Rafting Trips

Most of the Grand Canyon trips depart from Lees Ferry, Arizona (approximately 2-1/2 hours from the south rim of the Grand Canyon). We offer partial trips which allow you to get on or off at Phantom Ranch located at the bottom of the Grand Canyon National Park South Rim. Requiring a hike in or out, with proper planning the mule ride up or down is also an option. Most trips occur between April and October. Since all rafting on the Colorado requires a permit, planning and reserving your trip requires reservations well in advance.
