One Day White Water Rafting

Begin to explore the Grand Canyon walls over the white water rapids of the Colorado River. Hike up to Travertine Falls, a natural waterfall, with your experienced guide. Hear about the history and culture of the Hualapai people. Look for local wildlife while enjoying lunch along the banks of the river. Continue through the Grand Canyon on a smooth water ride viewing the towering canyon from a unique perspective. Complete your adventure with a helicopter flight up to the top of Grand Canyon West, home of the Skywalk. Rafts depart from Peach Springs, Arizona on Historic Route 66 from the Hualapai Lodge and ground transportation returns you to Peach Springs. All this in just one day!

2-Day Paddle Rafting

The 2-Day Paddle Rafting Trip is a weekend only excursion that will ramp off at Diamond Creek RM 225 at 8: 00 a.m. Designated stops will be held at Travertine Falls, Separation, and camping at Spencer Canyon. This trip will include lunch, dinner, breakfast and assorted snacks for paddle rafters. Operational hours will begin at Sunrise to Sunset. Cost is $650 per person and must be 12+ years of age. No additional services included.

We flew down to the Colorado river by helicopter, it was a steep walk down to the river, our guide on the trip was very knowledgeable and informative. A great experience

A long day but well worth it. If you don't want to get wet then don't do it, it's white water rafting. We get picked up promptly from our hotel and taken to breakfast which I happily slept through as it was still early. Our driver is a vet' so he was interesting to talk to, it's a long drive... More

Although because of limited dates for trip taken offered on this site It's actually been several years since we took this trip but it's at the top of our list for great fun. The guides were wonderful and seeing the canyon from river level is unmatched.

I had already visited the Grand Canyon several times, but never like this. Gorgeous views that will take your breath away for hours on end. My friend and I also really appreciated how the day was planned. The intense rafting was at the beginning, with a break to hike to a cave waterfall. Then you break for lunch and drift... More

We went in mid-September, 2016. We had done a fair amount of river rafting and always enjoyed it. Not this time. I would advise everybody to read the reviews ranked 'Terrible' because they are quite accurate. The cliffs, vistas and rock formations are, of course spectacular. But everything else was way below expectations. It is like sightseeing in a 3rd... More

Our Road Scholar group took a 37 mile white water trip down the Colorado River. We were picked up at the Hualapai Lodge, taken to the rafts. We stopped for a lunch break (sack lunch) on the river. We finished the trip and walked up to catch one of their helicopters out of the canyon. We were then transported by... More

This was a once in a lifetime trip that we will never forget! The Hualapai White Water Rafting one-day trip was a fun, exciting and educational experience for my family. We first boarded our bus at 8 a.m. from Hualapai Lodge and took the one-hour ride down into the canyon to our launch point. Our bus driver, J.B., was knowledgeable... More

The team here provided an incredibly fun, yet safe, rafting experience. I enjoyed a narrated drive to the launch point, hours of rafting on the Rapids, with diversions like an opportunity to jump off a rock and swim in the river, a helicopter ride out of the canyon, and time to relax and enjoy the view at Eagle Peak.

I've seen the Grand Canyon lots of times from the air, from the rim and by helicopter but this is the most awesome way to see it. First you take a bus ride down a rough trail dropping about 4,000 feet in 21 miles then you board an inflatable boat with an oversized steel bath tub hung in the middle... More
