A Grand Canyon Rafting Tour – The Trip of a Lifetime

O.A.R.S. and Grand Canyon Dories have a reputation for maintaining the gold standard for Grand Canyon rafting tour outfitters. That's because our two companies are the most experienced oar-powered guides in the Canyon, having guided satisfied Grand Canyon rafting enthusiasts for over 40 years. Our full-time Grand Canyon rafting guides are legends in their own time and know the Colorado River's best kept secrets. Their enthusiasm, knowledge and years of experience are unmatched in the industry.

This is North America's ultimate river rafting trip, through one of the Seven Wonders of the World in Arizona's wild west. What few people realize is that because the water releases on the Colorado River in Grand Canyon National Park are controlled, the early and late-seasons of April or September and October offer the Canyon at its best.

In addition to exciting Grand Canyon whitewater, O.A.R.S. also specializes in fantastic canyon side hikes to Matkatamiba Canyon, Deer Creek Falls, Elves Chasm, Havasu Creek and other lush oases in this desert of skyscraper rocks. We'll even take you to one of the best swimming holes in the West... the warm, turquoise water of the Little Colorado.

If you can't find space for the Grand Canyon rafting tour you're looking for in the Canyon itself in Arizona, the Colorado River offers a similar experience through Utah's Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park.
