The Grand Canyon Smooth Water Float Trip

Yearning for excitement take the challenge of an 15 mile smooth water float trip through the majestic Glen Canyon and Horseshoe Bend.

A well appointed motor coach will arrive at the Maswik Lodge to transport you comfortably during the three hour trip from Grand Canyon South Rim to Lee's Ferry, Arizona.

Before boarding the raft each rafter will be supplied with a box lunch. These meals include luncheon meats, cheese, vegetables, chips, cookies and bottled water. Gluten-free and vegetarian meals are also available, with 24 hours notice before departure.

Rafters will board a motorized raft, designed to comfortably hold 22 passengers. From the base of Glen Canyon Dam, the motorized raft will transport you up the Colorado River where you will find and view the ancient Petroglyphs.

Back on the water, the flow of the river will provide you with relaxing, scenic canyon views as it carries you to Lee's Ferry. When your raft arrives at Lee's Ferry, you will once again board the waiting motor coach in anticipation of the return trip to the Grand Canyon hotel. Guests will be treated to views of the Navajo Indian Reservation, and enjoy a brief stop at Cameron Trading Post along the way. Unfortunately, Glen Canyon Dam will not be viewable.
