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 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!

Franklin22 thank you very much for experiencing your 4th "trip of lifetime" with us! And for taking the time to review your adventure on tripadvisor. We agree the only way to really see the Grand Canyon is to get to bottom of it. Being on a rafting trip through the canyon allows one to get up close and personal, as... More

My husband and I had been on a lower river rafting trip multiple years ago and decided, at our age, we had one more trip left in us for the Grand Canyon (59 & 65) so, we decided to do the full river! We even got our not so active relatives to join us -- who live TOTALLY live "techy"... More

My husband & I did this in May. It was fantastic! The guides were all very professional even while having fun. I did learn that whatever they said about the ease or difficulty of a hike, I should take it up a notch. It was an interesting mix of being spoiled and roughing it.

… And you'll want to do it more than once. These guys are the best. Professionals at what they do, they convey a deep love for the canyon and a respect for its resources. They cook great meals and make for a thrilling but comfortable off the grid experience.

Had the most incredible time rafting down the Grand Canyon with Azra! All the guides were absolutely fantastic, they hugely exceeded my expectations! Their knowledge of the history and geology of the canyon was amazing- I expected them to be knowledgeable on the river considering it was a white water rafting trip, but the extra information about the Grand Canyon...

Been down the Grand Canyon now twice with AzRA, great people. The food well just great. The guides , great cooks and very knowledgeable about the the canyon and all the people that have been there before us. I liked the motor trips best, one week was all my old body could take.

Just completed the hiking emphasis nonmotorized raft trip for the lower half of the canyon (Bright Angel to Diamond Springs). Everything was done well. The guides were all terrific. If you are thinking this trip belongs on your bucket list, you are absolutely right.
