Have your friends and neighbors told you that you need to set aside a week, maybe more, for a Grand Canyon whitewater rafting trip? Have you heard people say that it’s just not possible to experience the rapids of the Colorado River in one day? It gives us great pleasure to tell you that they’re “all wet!” Your One Day Grand Canyon Rafting Expedition starts at 7.30 AM after a brief check-in at Hualapai Lodge in Peach Springs, Arizona. Your Grand Canyon rafting adventure begins with a scenic ride to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. As you descend into the canyon on the Diamond Creek Road, the only road to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, keep an eye out for unusual desert plants, and even a wild burro or two!
At the bottom of the Grand Canyon you’ll meet your river guide, who’ll help you into your life vests and rain gear before boarding your pontoon boat. You’ll waste no time getting wet, as you plunge into your first rapid! Mid-way through the morning, you’ll break for a simple hike, and a ladder-assisted climb, into a hidden nook of the Colorado River, where an underground spring emerges through the travertine to form a beautiful waterfall. Back on the river, it’s time for more excitement as more white water awaits you! The rapids on this trip average Class II and III, considered “moderate” on a scale of I to IV, which means that this trip can be enjoyed by children as young as 8.
After an exhilarating run through the rapids, it’s time to take a break for lunch. After lunch, the rest of your journey is all about relaxation and reflection on your eventful day. You’ll float past fluted rock formations and historic Separation Canyon, where 3 members of the first Colorado River expedition in 1869 left the group, meeting an uncertain fate. You will continue on to your final destination at Pearce Ferry. Here, your river guide bids you farewell as you board a bus and head back to Hualapai Lodge, where your vehicle is waiting for you. Price includes: One Day Whitewater rafting adventure, Hualapai Tribal Park entrance fee, lunch and beverages on the river; life vests provided by Hualapai River Runners. You must bring: rain gear, sun protection (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, etc.), towel, change of dry clothes, waterproof camera (or a camera with a dry bag.)
