Charter Groups & Custom Tours
Have ROCA (Rivers & Oceans Custom Adventures) plan and coordinate a unique & memorable charter tour for your group.
Exclusive and Customizable
We’ve been designing and running group, charter, private, and custom tours for over 30 years. Chartering a private trip allows the tour to be exclusively people you want to share the experience. In addition it is possible to customize the trip to include options like adding a layover day, safari style camping, and/or adjusting the logistics of the trip.
While most people reach out to us about Grand Canyon charters, many groups select charter/exclusive trips in Utah, Oregon, California, and Idaho due to the cost, availability, flexibility and the minimum number of people needed. On these other rivers, trips need as little as 10-12 passengers to be run exclusively. (If you have close to 10-12 people and would like an exclusive trip, there is the option to pay for the minimum number of spaces, and still have the trip chartered). The farther in advance you plan a charter, especially for Grand Canyon, the more options are available.
Booking a group or charter rafting trip through us costs the same as booking directly with the outfitter.
While most private groups use our service to help them find the right trip and outfitter, some people want additional help or to have trips customized to a greater degree than a outfitters like to do on their own. In these cases we step-in to insure your desired details are planned and implemented while working with our partner outfitters. Many times on these trips we provide some of our own guides to insure everything runs smoothly.
Our guides have decades of experience working most of the rivers of the west. Furthermore, we take pride in our spirit of adventure and hospitality. Put our knowledge to work planning and facilitating your group’s best custom adventure. Also read about ROCA in the news.

Aaron has been leading trips for over 25 years on some of the most prestigious rivers in the world. Ten years ago he worked his first custom rafting tour with Robby on the Selway River. The two found they had a common approach of structuring trips around the needs of the group rather than forcing groups into standard formats.

This is a once in a lifetime experience through one of the most majestic places on earth.

I could not be more happy with my experience!
Once in a lifetime experience!
I went on a trip with my dad and brother in August, and it was one of the most memorable experiences I’ve had. The Rivers & Oceans staff is very experienced, knowledgeable, and made the trip an incredible time! Words can’t describe how beautiful and unique this experience is, and Robby & team made sure we had the most fun possible while staying safe. The food was great, they know how to tailor the trip to each person, and have been on the river so much that they know little details to make it extra special. 10/10 recommend!
Pristine wilderness, exhilarating whitewater, delicious food, wonderful guides, great hikes, rich in wildlife, remote but accessible, the perfect length of trip – I’d heard for years that the Selway was extraordinary, but never dreamed how transcendent and magical this river trip would be! If you’ve read this far – do not delay – this is a unique and rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural world and emerge rejuvenated by beauty, inspired and nourished by days spent in the company of Rivers and Ocean’s skilled, delightful, knowledgeable guides. GO!!!!!!!
