Overview

Arizona Raft Adventures is a family run business operating 6-16 day rafting trips, as a licensed rafting tour operator within Grand Canyon National Park since 1974. Our adventures are both motorized and non-motorized (paddle or oar rafts). We believe that a trip down the mighty Colorado River, through the Grand Canyon is the trip of a lifetime, composed not only of exciting whitewater and world class scenery, but also lots of exploring and hiking in the many wondrous side canyons. Our adventures provide the time to experience it all, so come play with us in Grand Canyon!

But the highest praise is for the guides, they were professional, passionate about the river, history, and geology. The...More
