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!

This outfitter is a real class act! We went on the June 6 lower canyon trip and can't say enough about the experience. From our guide down the Bright Angel trail to the bus driver back to Flagstaff, everything was flawlessly organized. This is a life changing trip. It is worth every penny.

Did the 9-day Lower Canyon all paddle trip leaving in early July. I couldn't recommend this trip or AZRA as a company any more. In general, I'd say the two things that surprised me the most was the variety of landscapes in the canyon and the differences between our days. Some days we paddled more, some days we hiked more,...

This was an eight day motor trip that has exceeded my expectations eleven times. I enjoyed the last trip just as much as the first trip. A first class trip at a bargain price.

Simply stated, the 8 day motor trip with Matt, Sommer, David, Simone and Julia was outstanding!! The side canyon adventures were incredible. Sommer and Julia led "the Adventure Club" stemming/chimneying up Matkatamiba canyon. The AzRA trip guides were knowledgeable about the geology and culture of the canyon. They love sharing the canyon with others. We appreciated that the guides let... More

Nearly as amazing as the scenery in the Grand Canyon and along the Colorado River, is the knowledge and service provided by the guides from Arizona Raft Adventures. Our trip leaders, Andrew, Alan, Derrick, Steve, Tess and Bev were as knowledgable about the Canyon's history and geology as they were experts at navigating the thrilling whitewater.

Everything that can be said about how the Grand Canyon exceeds all expectations and how totally awesome fun the white water of the Colorado River leaves you smiling, wet, and breathless, has already be said.

Where do I start? As one of our guides (Alan) wisely said, "Ask me what time it is and I'll tell you NOW" "Ask me where you are and i'll tell you HERE." That is pretty much what you need to know to enjoy this amazing life experience. I would never call this a TRIP or a VACATION because it... More

Ten day raft trip down the full length of the Grand Canyon with AZRA. The level of organization, service and expertise is the best I've experienced in a guiding adventure in my life. From the pre-trip planning to the trip and the post trip follow up, the AZRA crew were outstanding. Definitely two thumbs up.

My raft trip with AzRA was a wonderful experience that exceeded my expectations by a large measure. My biggest surprise was the incredible hikes to side canyons that would have required multiple, multiple day hikes from the rim. The Canyon, as seen from the Colorado is beyond magnificent and borders on a transformative personal experience. From the office staff to... More
