One Day Grand Canyon Rafting
You can check off another bucket list adventure! The one day trip was exciting and beautiful.
I did the one day Grand Canyon trip on Sunday Oct 2, 2022. Sofie one of the two guides on the raft said the water was about a 7 out 10. The rapids were class 3,5 & 7. I was up front and was soaked most of the time. I loved it.
We were on the water 5.5 hrs. half was rapids and the other time was motoring looking at the canyon walls in awe. Around every bend was nature at its finest. When we stopped for Lunch Sophie called the main office on the satellite phone letting them know we were all safe. I really liked that. The bus driver was very nice and stopped multiple times on the 20 mile trip into the canyon explaining about the cactus, all the wild flowers and rocks. I was by myself as my sons flight was canceled due to the hurricane. The guides never made me feel like a fifth wheel.
I would do this trip again in a heartbeat.
This was an awesome trip! This first hour or so was driving to the bottom of the canyon to the Colorado river…..unbelievable scenery. Then you get on your assigned boat….for the first half of the trip you hit rapids and they are a lot of fun….not that scary. After that you go to the waterfalls which was fun, different, very scenic. The last four hours you have a gentle ride back to the pick up spot….again scenery like most people have never witnessed. They could have spiced up the last 4 hours by allowing alcohol or making frequent stops to swim/recreate or maybe use the motor boats to get you back faster. Also, I read in reviews you might need rain gear due to the cold. We went in August….no rain gear needed….it was very warm at the bottom of the canyon. In fact don’t forget the sun screen. It is a long day….we did not get back to our car until 8pm, so it was a full 12 hr day. We really enjoyed it.

1-Day Grand Canyon Rafting
The experienced staff makes sure every rider is safe and has an enjoyable experience with the utmost care for the rafter and their family.
We had an incredible experience due to our excellent guides. Our guides were knowledgeable with excellent leadership skills. We experienced a shift in the weather, but our guide TJ and his crew keep us all safe. I was nervous, but not scared, we were informed of the weather’s patterns. Our guides were knowledgeable, and experienced. They genuinely cared about everyone having a great time. My guide had the ability to read the water, he made a quick decision to rearranged a few of us to properly balanced the draft and to provide us a safe passage through the rapids. Our guides worked as a team. They made my trip memorable and amazing. THANK YOU, loved the experience! I will always remember this amazing trip. Also, the views were incredible.
