Sharing the Grand Canyon experience with you since 1969, Outdoors Unlimited offers the best in paddle and oar boat rafting adventures. Rafting the Grand Canyon offers a phenomenal variety of vistas, camps, waterfalls, rapids, side canyons, archaeological ruins, and other attraction sites to enjoy and explore. Allowing time to visit these places is the essence of every Outdoors Unlimited Grand Canyon Rafting trip. Our paddle and oar powered whitewater trips take a minimum of 13 days to traverse all 240 miles of the Colorado River through Grand Canyon National Park down to Lake Mead. Recognizing that you may not have time to do a Full Canyon Trip we offer the opportunity to do either the Upper Canyon or Lower Canyon. We also offer Paddle Trip options as well as Extended Spring & Fall trips.
