- What's Included

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 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 4
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, delicious meals, and assorted non-alcoholic beverages.

About the Raft

About the raft used for the 4 Day Paddle Only Rafting Trip

Seperator02 tr



PADDLE BOATS: Our paddle rafts accommodate 6-8 passengers. There are usually 2-3 paddle boats per-trip, depending on the group size and demand. A licensed guide is on board each paddle raft, instructing participants on how to navigate the river currents and paddle through the rapids. Guests are encouraged to rotate between the rafts so they get acquainted with other passengers and the entire crew.

37' Motor Raft

MOTOR RAFT: We will use one 37-foot motorized “S” rig on this trip to carry all the food supplies, camping equipment and personal gear.

If anyone in your party wishes to ride exclusively on the motor raft, please notify our office as far in advance as possible.

Camping and Dining on the 4 Day Paddle Only Rafting Trip

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.

Grand Canyon Rafting Trip Review

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.
