Using Rivers and Oceans was so easy to work with.
7-day Upper Grand Canyon; a trip of a lifetime that will be forever be in my heart!
I had the trip of a lifetime visiting the Upper Grand Canyon (7 days) in July 2022. I cannot stress enough the beauty, isolation, sense of wonder and excitement, excellence in staff, and ease of booking of this trip. This will be forever in your memories, so go ahead and go to the Grand Canyon!
I highly recommend Rivers & Oceans as they helped me assess different booking options, provided timely and relevant information, and were always available by email and phone. They know the river very well and had good suggestions. Due to a time crunch I was able to assess the options and complete the booking in less than 5 business days; Rivers and Oceans was key in helping me doing so. Their customer service is probably in the top 5% percentile out there. Let them guide you through the process and trust their judgement, as they have good experience in the Canyon.

Crystal Rapid – Grand Canyon
One of the more infamous rapids of the Grand Canyon is Crystal Rapid. It ranks between 7-10 on the Grand Canyon rapid scale depending on how high the river is flowing. The rapid itself is created from Crystal Creek entering on river right and Slate Creek entering on river left at the same point on the Colorado river.
