CRATE is a company that cares. My 13-year-old son and I just paddled the Grand Canyon. It changed his life, enhanced mine and planted seeds for our next CRATE adventure. This was my 6th trip with them since 1992. Each better than the last. Most guides are long-term devoted employees who are safety conscious, attentive,


Choose CRATE.

Just finished my second river trip with CRATE on a beautiful trip down the Grand Canyon. The guides were fun, laid back, and knowledgable. The food was fantastic. We had one motor boat, a paddle boat, and two duckies. I had a great time experiencing the canyon in each. But I must say that the

A trip of a lifetime!

We recently returned from our 8-day motorized trip through the entire Grand Canyon. It was an unbelievable trip for our entire group of 8, ranging in age from 20 to 68. The guides were very knowledgeable as well as incredibly helpful and friendly. They made sure that everyone who wanted to go on a hike

Amazing 11-day paddle trip through the Canyon

We just got back from an 11-day paddle trip of the Upper and Lower Grand Canyon. To say it was amazing is understatement. All the guides were always ready to help and answer questions. We were told about the history of the Canyon as we floated through by our boat captains. One of the captains

Surpassed my very high expectations!

I have been to the Canyon a number of times but this was my first rafting trip. I did a significant amount of research before picking Crate so I knew exactly what I wanted/expected from this trip. Crate did not disappoint! I was a solo traveler on the June 15-22, 2013 8 day full canyon


The Grand Canyon does not give up her beauty easily!

AND it is worth it! Especially when you are guided by the best, (CRATE) thanks Walker, Jonny , Carter and Andy.

Nine Day raft trip with CRATE

This is my second trip with CRATE down the Colorado through the Canyon. It was amazing, We would motor around 30+ miles a day stopping at artifact sites, waterfalls and canyons. We slept on sand bars along the way on cots out among the stars. The scenary was breathtaking, the rapids were full of fun


Lower Grand Canyon Motor Trip

What a trip of a lifetime. Anyone wanting to go and explore the Gran Canyon on a Motorized raft I highly recommend Crate. My wife and I will talk about this trip for years. The Guides where amazing and we got to see some amazing sights along the way. The food was fantastic and sleeping


nine day raft trip with CRATE

Just completed an amzing 9 day rafting down the Colorado through the Canyon with my son. The star filled skies at night, the excitement of some of the best white water rapids and above all the most beautiful scenary was breathtaking. Our river guides made all the diffrence in providing an adrenaline filled, but safe


9 day Natural History rafting with CRATE

This is my fourth trip rafting the Colorado with CRATE. Love them! This motorized trip is for people who love the outdoors, but not quite the rigors of a non-motorized trip. If you don’t like that much time in the outdoors, do their 8-day trip or a shorter trip somewhere else. All sections of the


“Lower Grand Canyon with CRATE”

This was a trip of a lifetime! Our group of four chose to do the six day trip this time but will likely do the nine day trip next time to see the entire canyon. Our CRATE guides’ knowledge, skill, and competency provide a comfort level, not to mention they were also a lot of

9 days of Rafting with CRATE

This was my second trip with CRATE in the past 4 years. The first trip was just the upper river with a hike out at the Phantom area. This year’s trip was the whole enchilada. There is so much to see from top to bottom, I am glad I did the whole 9 day trip


11 day raft trip down the Grand Canyon

This was one of the best vacations we have ever had. The crew was outstanding, courteous, experienced, knowledgeable, and mature. The twenty in our two boat trip all could have been their parents. From the first call of “hot coooffeee” in the morning to the dulcet tones of other campers rippling in their sleeping bags

We did an 11-day rafting/hiking trip with CRATE–it was amazing! CRATE takes smaller groups than other companies, the food is great, an the equipment is well maintained. The trip and activities far exceeded our expectations. The best part however is the guides. They were professional, knowledgeable, and always safety conscious. The crew of Dewey, Ben,


Great trip – CRATE made the difference!

I was guided on an 11-day rafting and hiking expedition on the Colorado River through then entire Grand Canyon. It was truly an exceptional experience with a professional company who truly cared about our encounter with both the river and canyon. I chose the motorized trip so I could focus on the hiking within one


5 day paddle trip to south rim & hike out

It was truly an excellent trip.Thoroughly professional outfit all round.Chilled people, who know their job,which is taking care and making sure everyone was taking in the whole experience,be it the white water excitement, geology, history, geography, environmental issues facing the river. Food was superb, meat, salads,hot chocolate fudge cake,fruit, Hot /cold drinks, plentiful. Equipment,totally adequate.


If you do the river, go with CRATE!

We did the upper portion of the Colorado… 5 days… and had a blast. CRATE guides were tops, caring for the group in every way. We hit RAIN…lots of it on 2 of the days, and still felt spoiled! Great food, gear, explanations about the canyon’s history. Glad we went with a smaller company and


Bucket List Trip

Just returned from our 11 day private motorized rafting and hiking trip down the Grand Canyon. The trip was truly exceptional and memorable!
