Incredible Grand Canyon Whitewater Rafting TripsSince 1971
Colorado River & Trail Expeditions (CRATE) has been a licensed white water rafting concessionaire in the Grand Canyon since 1971. We began rafting other stretches of the Green River and Colorado Rivers shortly thereafter, including Cataract Canyon, Desolation Canyon, and Westwater Canyon. In 1978, we explored the Tatshenshini and Alsek Rivers in Alaska and soon added those wild and remote rivers to our catalog of rafting adventures. For nearly 50 years, we have consistently provided high quality, fully outfitted rafting adventures through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the west.
Off-river hiking and side canyon exploration are emphasized on all of our river trips. Our guests have unique opportunities to see and experience the remote back country beauty, as well as the grandeur of the river corridors and the thrill of white water rafting!
If you are looking for a fun, exciting, and unforgettable outdoor adventure, contact us today for more information about the Grand Canyon, Cataract Canyon, Desolation Canyon, Alaska, and our other river rafting trips.
