Colorado River Rafting

Most Colorado River rafting trips begin at Lee's Ferry, located about 54 miles from Page, AZ. Page is the biggest town near the boat ramp, so many river runners supply their trips in Page. There are several Colorado River rafting trips to choose from; guests can do everything from just a calm, one day float trip upriver through Horseshoe Bend up to Glen Canyon Dam, or go big and do a 28 day white water river trip down through the Grand Canyon. There are a dozen types of river trips in between, but going rafting down the Colorado River is certainly an adventure you should consider. Going downstream through the Grand Canyon does require a permit for both commerical and private river trips. There is no exception to this! The Grand Canyon has class 5 rapids and requires previous river experience in order to manage this trip safely. However, going upstream from Lee's Ferry does not require a permit. Lee's Ferry to Glen Canyon Dam is about 15 miles each way. You can go on a guided river trip from Lee's Ferry to Glen Canyon Dam, or if you'd like a little more self-guided experience, you can hire a powerboat to take you up to Glen Canyon Dam. From there, you can disembark the powerboat and get on your own watercraft such as a kayak, small rafting boat or even a paddleboard for a 15 mile float trip back down to Lee's Ferry. There are no services provided and no really good bailout options on this portion of the canyon. Make sure you have all the supplies you need to do this float trip safely. Every now and then, private fishing boats and a few guided tour boats come around. But please do no rely on them for your safety. Also, please practice good judgement and enviromental ethics when enjoying the truley breathtaking experience.
