Not a good experience at all!!!
We were over one hour late being picked up at the hotel, once we got to the river we waited over one hour for the crew to get the boats in the water and loaded. Our river guide was...More

We went with Canyoneers on a seven day trip down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon in early September. It was a wonderful time of year because the summer crowds were gone and the weather was a little cooler. Rivers and Oceans were incredibly...More
My husband and I wanted to raft the Colorado River, but when I looked into it, I found there were about 15 companies that offer trips. I was overwhelmed flipping back and forth from websites, but then I was reading a trip report and someone...More
This whole trip was really well organized. We did the one day Grand Canyon rafting and loved it. The rapids were so fun! We got absolutely drenched, it was like a wet rollercoaster. Our guide was very nice and helpful. We loved the waterfall side...More

Arizona River Runners did an awesome job hosting us through the Grand Canyon. The 6 day river trip brought the magic of the Grand Canyon to near spiritual level. The ARR guides were tremendous stewards of the canyon, experienced boatman, great cooks, knowledgeable guides and...More

You will have a life vest on. I would imagine even if you did know how to swim, it still would be a shock to fall into the water. But the team has folks who ride ahead of us to immediately assist anyone who falls in. I always felt 100% save following Dave’s every instruction. This was the adventure of a lifetime. Highly recommended.

Hi there. I would recommend good rain gear to start - top & bottom. If you get rain or the morning is shady and cool, you will appreciate the added protection. My philosophy has always been, "If you bring it, you won't need it. If you don't bring it, you will need it." Rain gear does not take up too much room, easily storable in a dry bag (provided).
You will also want to bring a water bottle, special snacks (basic snacks will be provided), sunscreen, sun protective clothing, camera and a few bucks (or credit card) for the store stop on the way back to Peach Springs.
Most importantly though, is to bring a good, flexible attitude. Going into the adventure understanding that this is an experience with variables in a remote location will heighten your enjoyment.
Thanks for contacting us and we hope to help you get on the river soon!

I don't work for the rafting outfit, I was a customer last fall, so I don't know if they offer any hotel pick-up. I can tell you that it departs from the West Rim in Peach Springs, and you head further West down river, then get bused back to Peach Springs. It's about 2.25 hrs between the South Rim and Peach Springs. The rafting co. partners with a lodge in Peach Springs that is nice and very economical should you choose to stay there.
