I had the good fortune of getting on a GC Dory trip due to a late cancellation. I walked from the South Rim and met the rest of the guests at Boat Beach. It was a beautiful day, the hike was fun as usual, can't get enough of that canyon, and the dories were there to meet us. The guides were great, interesting folks on the trip, and it was a pleasure to experience the canyon from the river perspective after many years of seeing it from the soles of my feet. Our first major rapid was Horn, and after the size of that was , I was a believer!! I had the opportunity to borrow a Kindle from our guide, Bruce, and read "The Emerald Mile" a story not only of a speed run through the canyon but much dory history which made the trip that much more special.
It gets a little cold in November but it is a great time to see the canyon if you are dressed warmly and have an adult beverage or two to keep warm with. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!!
