Raft the Grand Canyon
Rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon is the best-known rafting expedition in the world. For nearly 300 miles the river flows freely through a mile-deep gorge of ever-changing views and vistas, revealing the history of the earth in its multicolored layers of rock. The rapids are legendary, ranging from playful riffles to white knuckle thrills. Side canyon hiking and off-river exploration will take you to places of wonder, where you can frolic in waterfalls, swim in turquoise pools, stand amazed upon scenic overlooks, or relish the cooling shade of slot canyons and hidden grottoes.
We offer trips through the entire Grand Canyon from Lees Ferry to Pearce Ferry. We also offer trips that start/leave the Grand Canyon at Whitmore Wash via Helicopter. Some of our rafting trips have an option to start or end at Phantom Ranch via hiking in/out of the Grand Canyon. CRATE offers motorized, rowing, paddle, and kayak support rafting tours.
Our river tours on the Colorado River in Grand Canyon range from 3-14 days in length. It takes a minimum of 8 days to raft the entire Grand Canyon. Our shortest trip is our 3-day Grand Canyon Ranch and Raft Adventure trip which is all inclusive from Las Vegas.
