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!

Had a great time on our raft trip through the Grand Canyon. Guides were great and very helpful. Food was super especially when considering conditions under which it was made. Scenery unbeatable and guides offered lots of info on history, rock formations and such. Highly recommend for a get-a-way from everyday humdrum.

My husband and I and our 31 year old daughter took this trip. My concern was that the motorized trip would be too "wimpy" for really experiencing the river, but it definitely wasn't. Be prepared for quickly changing weather conditions including cold and rain and some exhilarating rapids. The guides did a wonderful job and the food was terrific. It... More

This trip was the hiker's special 16 day trip, April 2015. One passenger who was on his 5th river trip runs a company that helps people select an appropriate company and trip. I don't know whether all his trips were with different companies, but he said that this group of guides worked together better than any other group he had... More

Our AzRA trip was fantastic. They are thorough, courteous and the guides' love of The Canyon was evident on all levels. We learned and saw the Geology, Wildlife and Plantlife. The tents/bags etc were easy to use. The food was fresh and excellent. The Spring trip meant clear water, an uncrowded river, and moderate temperatures. The hiking was good, but... More

Trip Advisor, you should revise this category. AZRA offers many different Colorado river trips; I took the 9-day lower canyon. It was FABULOUS in every respect: guides, food, scenery, weather. I highly recommend Arizona Raft Adventures to everyone planning a rafting trip

Thanks Pamela R for informing TA that we do not run day-trips. We have contacted TA about this issue and nothing has changed in regards to the fact that they do not have an appropriate listing for multi-day trips. We are glad you enjoyed your 9-day trip with AzRA. Thanks for your review and for rafting with us through the... More
