GRAND CANYON RAFT TRIP
June 4-12, 2012
We will travel by large motorized rubber boats, and camp each night on river beaches. While there are significant rapids, there are also stretches of calm water as the river leads us on our journey “below the rim” through breath-taking scenery, fabulous geology, desert ecological zones, interesting archeology, and fascinating historical perspectives.
- The cost per person is $2625, and a deposit of $500 will hold your spot.
- Our outfitter provides boats, licensed and experienced guides, excellent food, life jackets, and camping gear in a waterproof duffel bag.
- While in camp, the participants have time to sit and relax, bathe, read, fish, socialize, hike, explore, and swim.
- Plans are afoot to organize short tours of the area before or after the raft trip, and participants will be asked about their interest in these options.
- The trip fee does not include transportation to and from our launch point at Lees Ferry, below Glen Canyon Dam, but does include helicopter lift-out from Whitmore Wash and a fixed-wing airplane ride back to your starting point.
