On this special 3-day Grand Canyon adventure, you will fly from Las Vegas to the Bar 10 Ranch on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Your overnight stay at the Bar 10 will include lunch and dinner the first day and breakfast the second morning. You will also have access to all of the ranch’s facilities and activities, including horseback riding, horseshoes, hiking, skeet shooting, and evening entertainment. ATV rides are available at an extra cost and can be purchased at the ranch.

On the 2nd morning, you will helicopter down to the Colorado River to begin the rafting portion of your trip. While on the river, you will ride through some fun and exciting rapids, hike to interesting historical and/or geological sights, play in waterfalls, and experience the wonder camping along the river beneath a star-filled night sky. Meals on the river begin with lunch the first day and conclude with lunch the last day – all of them prepared and served by your friendly, capable guide staff. The trip will end the 3rd afternoon at Pearce Ferry on upper Lake Mead. Transportation back to Las Vegas will be provided by van or motor coach. You can expect to be back in Las Vegas around 6:00 p.m.

Grand Canyon Ranch And Raft Trip Itinerary

Seperator02 tr

Day 1
Scenic flight from Las Vegas, NV, to the Bar 10 Ranch

The adventure begins with a scenic flight from Las Vegas, Nevada, to the Bar 10 Ranch on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  Your overnight stay at the Bar 10 includes horseback riding, horseshoes, hiking, skeet shooting and evening entertainment.

Day 2
Sensational helicopter flight from the ranch down into the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and starting our journey down river.

Our guides will help everyone get fitted with a life jacket, hand out dry bags, and give the group an orientation about the trip before pushing the boats out into the current and starting our journey down river. 

Day 2 – 3
River rafting through 50 miles of the Lower Granite Gorge

There are about 10 class III rapids on this section of river.  The whitewater is fun and exciting with big splashy waves. 

In addition to the whitewater there will be some off river hikes to natural wonders and waterfalls, and an overnight campout on the banks of the river (with a brilliant night sky star show!). 

Day 3
Last rapid and then meet our jet boat for a speedy run out of the canyon to Pearce Ferry Marina

From Pearce Ferry you return to Las Vegas via motor coach or van.  We furnish all camping equipment (cots, sleeping bags and tents if needed), delicious meals, and assorted non-alcoholic beverages.

About the Raft

About the raft used for the 3 Day Motor Expedition

Seperator02 tr

On these Grand Canyon river rafting trips guests travel in style aboard our 37′ rafts that are guided using quiet four stroke outboard engines.

Our Motorized rafts offer a slightly tamer ride through Grand Canyon’s rapids while still giving guests plenty of excitement. These trips are a great option for families and groups because 10-12 guests can ride on the same raft.

Our 37′ rafts are specially designed so everyone can take in a 360 degree view unlike some of our competitors whose boats are designed for guests to sit on one side of a gear pile on the raft.

Camping and Dining on 3 Day Motor Expedition

Our meals consist of a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy products. They are nutritious and delicious. Although we do not serve a “vegetarian” menu, we do provide enough fresh produce and non-meat items that most vegetarian dieters get along fine for the week they are on the river.

We are willing to try and help with special diet requests, but if your food options are very restrictive or require extra time or preparations we may not be able to accommodate you. Please give us a call to discuss your particular diet needs. We may suggest that you bring some of your own food items to supplement our menu.

Our group rafted the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. It was such a positive experience from reservation to the take-out. Our rafting adventure was so well-coordinated and we felt confident in our delightful crew from the first rapid to the last. Delicious meals, great conversations, challenging hikes, and yummy desserts. The crew checked in with us regularly to make sure we were comfortable and were accommodating for various levels of abilities. We even had poetry read to us each morning before we started our day. Would I go again? Absolutely! Would there be a few things I would do differently? Absolutely! Less personal items (you won't be shampooing as often as you think), less clothing, and a few more layering pieces. Overall, this was truly a trip of a lifetime.

I would just like to let you know how much we enjoyed our rafting trip! It was such a spectacular, once in a lifetime trip. Your staff should be commended. Their knowledge of the river and compassion is exceptional. They made this the most amazing trip that we have ever taken. I cannot possibly thank you entire crew enough.

I knew you were an original family run company and I think it showed. It was also part of the reason I chose your group when I started doing the research, as you were always so quick and helpful with your email replies. I figured it was likely to carry through to other parts of your company and it clearly does!

First to let you know that we had an exceptional trip through Desolation Canyon with Sybrena and her crew. Our guides made everyone so comfortable. From my wife sleeping under the stars, to daughter and grandkids challenging the rapids in the duckies. Could not have asked for more. Once again you (CRATE) exceeding my expectations.

You are all terrific professionals and CRATE is a first-class operations. After 3 Grand Canyon, 1 Cataract, and 1 Desolation trip with CRATE over the years, you’re clearly my go-to outfitter, and I will continue to talk CRATE and the western rivers and canyons up with all my friends in the northeast.
