Grand Canyon Outfitters
1. We are one of the few outfitters that raft the entire 277 miles of the Colorado River running through the Grand Canyon, ending at the headwaters of Lake Mead.
Many other outfitters end their Grand Canyon rafting trips at river mile 188, leaving nearly 100 miles (more than one third) of the canyon's stunning scenery unseen, including sites pertaining to its intriguing human history. We raft our guests below mile 240, where they board one of our jet boats for a fast and scenic ride across Lake Mead to the take-out. When you return from a GCE expedition, you will have memories that will last a lifetime and countless stories to tell. You will honestly be able to say that you experienced the entire Grand Canyon.
2. All of our expeditions depart from and return to Las Vegas.
Las Vegas has been our choice for years for beginning and ending our Grand Canyon river tours. It is the most conveniently located city to utilize as a transportation hub for our expeditions. Inexpensive flights to Las Vegas are available from practically every major city in the nation. If, for some reason, Las Vegas will not fit your travel plans, please contact our office to arrange other options.
3. We offer all inclusive 8-day, 14-day and 16-day expeditions.
When you go on a Colorado River rafting trip through the Grand Canyon with GCE, we provide all the meals, sleeping gear, tents, dry bags, personal storage boxes, and a detailed clothing list. Additionally, GCE provides transportation to and from Las Vegas. When you book a Grand Canyon river rafting excursion with us, you do not need to worry about the details. We have them covered. All you really need to bring is something to wear other than your smile!
4. We only allow 14 guests per raft.
GCE rafts can accommodate as many as 17 guests, while some outfitters carry as many as 22! However, we feel that comfort is extremely important on our Grand Canyon raft excursions. For this reason, we limit the number of passengers on each raft to 14, making your experience with us more comfortable, more personal and more enjoyable. So relax, stretch your legs, and experience the Grand Canyon while traveling first class instead of coach. (See Boat Diagram)
