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!

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. This was a chartered trip, but it appears to be much like the Dories and Stories trip. There were two wooden dories, two aluminum dories, and three rafts, one with just gear. We rotated... More

The rafting trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon with Arizona Rafting Company was the best! The crew was absolutely wonderful--very knowledgeable and experienced, helpful and upbeat. Although each crew member had their own special interests and areas of expertise they worked together as a team in every way--from paddling, hiking and educating us about our surroundings to...

We did a 10-day motorized raft trip on the Colorado River through Grand Canyon. It was fantastic. The crew was excellent in every respect, and the food was outstanding. We were continually surprised by what the people were able to provide in the wilderness. Tents, sleeping bags, pads, chairs -- you name it. Our trip leader, Wayne Ranney, is a... More

This exceeded all my expectations by a country mile! The guides especially Somer were a credit to any company by the standards they set. Enjoyment, education, expectations and most importantly safety for the whole party was first class :-) I travelled with my 23yr old daughter and her fiancé, my 23yr old son and my 46 yr old brother n...

I can't believe I'm writing a five-star review about a trip in 110 degree heat where we had to use the bathroom in a bucket, but I am. It was spectacular. The AZRA staff was so cool, so game, so enthusiastic, so knowledgeable. Our guides, Katy, Bruce, Lauren and Tracy, were tireless, positive, helpful, fun, eco-conscious, and they cooked their...

We were all pumped up to hike down the Bright Angel Trail and enjoy the magnificent views, and then to have 9 days rafting down the river was even more memorable. The guides from Arizona Rafting were awesome, and made the adventure even better. I can't think of a better way to spend a vacation.

I used the Blue Grass angle to get my boyfriend to come rafting in the Grand Canyon. This is a special once a year trip for AZRA. We had concerts daily in caves, side canyons or after dinner in camp. Guitars, Dobro, banjo, ukele, and fiddle. Some musicians were dedicated Raft assistants, some were guests. The music added a special... More

This company offers top-notch, unsurpassed rafting trips on the Grand Canyon's Colorado River. Friendly, knowledgeable guides. They cook excellent meals and even dessert! This was my fourth trip with them in the Canyon and I wouldn't use anyone else. Oh, and by the way: RIVER RAFTING IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRULY SEE THE GRAND CANYON, PEOPLE!
