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 have just returned from my third trip through the Grand Canyon with AzRA. Simply put, a fabulous trip. Great food (fresh salad on the last day of a 14-day trip!), and very well organized. Side hikes were geared to the capabilities of the guests, with opportunities for the more adventurous to challenge themselves. Most of all, the guides were... More

Our family including 2 boys, ages 13 and 15, had the immense pleasure of rafting the Upper Colorado with Arizona Raft in late August 2016. The trip was simply phenomenal. We booked in early January and many trips had already been sold out, so if you're considering, book as early as possible to get the trip you want. On the... More

My two week trip was planned over a year in advance and as the date approached I wondered if it would live up to the rather high expectations that had developed in the months leading up to it. It exceeded them in every way. AZRA was professional and well organized from the orientation the night before the trip through the... More

Thank you Tom G for sharing some photos and reviewing your Classic rafting adventure through Grand Canyon with us! We could not agree more that a rafting expedition through Grand Canyon is like no other and is totally immersive, at times risky and an extremely participatory team experience. We hope you have re-adjusted to the "real world" and that your... More

I went with the group of 25 veterans a couple weeks ago and had a blast. The guides knew everything and were excellent hosts. We ate like kings and got to sample every aspect of the canyon I was interested in, from side canyons and waterfalls to ruins and even a helicopter medevac when one of our teammates felt sick....

The view of the Grand Canyon from the top of the South Rim may be mesmerizing, but nothing (NOTHING!) beats the experience of hiking and rafting in her depths.

The AZRA guides might not be Houdini but they sure will help you escape to one of the most incredible places on earth. Breathtaking scenery, world class whitewater are key ingredients in this adventure recipe. This is really "trip of a lifetime" and you have a choice if outfitters.

We took the 14 day full Canyon trip. The Upper part shows the unfolding geological story whilst some of the best rapids were on the lower part. The staff could not have been more helpful or knowledgeable. The food was fantastic and freshly prepared. Would certainly recommend if you want to see the Grand Canyon!

Its not just the fact you float and paddle serenely, lazily and then full on action with rapids in one of the most beautiful and peaceful settings you will experience, but its how you do it.
