Floating along in the river one will enjoy the sky-high sandstone cliffs, exciting rapids, and amazing wildlife.

  • Swimsuits/shorts that can dry out quickly
  • Raincoat
  • Warm jacket
  • Warm hat and visor
  • Loose and comfortable T-shirts, fleece tops and bottoms, hooded sweatshirts
  • One or two pair of shoes that can stay securely on your feet and will not slip off your feet
  • Sunglasses with neck strap
  • Sunscreen lotion with SPF
  • Flashlight
  • Water bottle
  • Change for buying Souvenirs or postcards of Colorado River and Grand Canyon
  • Fishing gear
  • Camp toys such as cards, Frisbee
  • Soap, shampoo, hand wash toothbrush, toothpaste, and other toiletries (Try to get biodegradable stuff to avoid polluting the river since you would be washing over there)
