Arizona Raft Adventures is a family run business operating 6-16 day rafting trips, as a licensed rafting tour operator within Grand Canyon National Park since 1974. Our adventures are both motorized and non-motorized (paddle or oar rafts). We believe that a trip down the mighty Colorado River, through the Grand Canyon is the trip of a lifetime, composed not only of exciting whitewater and world class scenery, but also lots of exploring and hiking in the many wondrous side canyons. Our adventures provide the time to experience it all, so come play with us in Grand Canyon!

I spent a week on the water with AzRA rafting the Grand Canyon. The guides were not only proficient in their water craft, but also very knowledgeable of the canyon and shared that information. The food was well above expectations. I am comfortable with stating that AzRA is a must do experience.

OUTSTANDING! This is how I describe my rafting adventure with AzRA. There is no detail missed from the initial sign-up through the last day of departure. Everything is top shelf.

On our way home after an amazing 15 day full canyon trip. Indescribable what we experienced! The boatmen were so professional and personable. I was quite hesitant about my lack of experience in white water, but our crew was incredible in their ability to put me at ease. Food was amazing, whitewater was exhilarating, and the company of fellow travelers... More

The Grand Canyon doesn't need a review. Considering a rafting trip? It's the experience of a lifetime if you 1) want beauty and excitement 2) don't mind sleeping on the ground 3)aren't grossed out by peeing in the river and 4) don't mind defecating in a portable toilet that then rides in the rafts with you every day.

I have just returned from my third trip through the Grand Canyon with AzRA. Simply put, a fabulous trip. Great food (fresh salad on the last day of a 14-day trip!), and very well organized. Side hikes were geared to the capabilities of the guests, with opportunities for the more adventurous to challenge themselves. Most of all, the guides were... More

My two week trip was planned over a year in advance and as the date approached I wondered if it would live up to the rather high expectations that had developed in the months leading up to it.
