Arizona Raft Adventures is a family run business operating 6-16 day rafting trips, as a licensed rafting tour operator within Grand Canyon National Park since 1974. Our adventures are both motorized and non-motorized (paddle or oar rafts). We believe that a trip down the mighty Colorado River, through the Grand Canyon is the trip of a lifetime, composed not only of exciting whitewater and world class scenery, but also lots of exploring and hiking in the many wondrous side canyons. Our adventures provide the time to experience it all, so come play with us in Grand Canyon!

We just returned from our 5th Grand Canyon raft trip down the Colorado River. All five have been with AzRA (Arizona Raft Adventures). They have a solid reputation as a premier rafting company, and they work hard to stay #1. AzRA is the company that professional guides want to work for. Isn’t that reason enough to choose them? Here are... More

This was the trip of a lifetime. A nice balance of daily rafting, hiking and checking out slot canyons. Being down in the canyon and riding through the layers was indescribable. Just so beautiful. Our fellow trippers were great and we shared many laughs during our time together. The guides were absolutely wonderful! Their experience in reading the rapids was... More

The Colorado River through the Grand Canyon can only be seen from river level on a raft or boat. The 16 day raft trip we took was a full-on wilderness adventure, completely off the grid and out of communication for that time. The spectacular grandeur of the Canyon, the wonderful sympatico guests, group socialization, stories and jokes, history and geology... More

I was part of the group that did a chartered 15 day combination dory and raft trip in August 2015 from Lee's Ferry to Diamond Creek.
