Rafting the Colorado River

Rafting the Colorado River requires reservations well in advance.  Many different companies offer trips through the canyon itself, lasting 3 days to 2 weeks.  Some trips are motorized, some are oar powered.  Since all rafting on the Colorado requires a permit, please know when you would like to go.  We will contact all the river concessionaires and help you find the best trip for you.

Native American Red River rafting is available year around.  One and two day trips are available.

Most of the 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.

For planning your trip, questions, concerns or to make your reservations, please email or call the toll free number below.

For more details choose a Rafting Tour from the list below.

This trip leaves Lee's Ferry and enters Marble Canyon. Its polished limestone layered with bands of sand and siltstones rise dramatically above the river with each mile passed, soaring thousands of feet to the rim.
