All the Grand: Motorized or Rowed

Colorado River from North Rim at ToroweapAll the Grand takes you through the entire Grand Canyon and all of its thrilling rapids. Our downriver descent is a journey from the smaller cliffs of Marble Canyon at the beginning to the deeper reaches of the Inner Gorge towards the end. Every mile reveals new sights, side canyons, and rock formations. We’ll also see wildlife, desert terrain, and lush vegetative spots.

During the days we’ll stop for some short trips to side canyons, rivers, waterfalls, ancient ruins and geologic wonders. We’ll also stop for a lunch break of sandwiches, fruits, veggies, and snacks.

In the evening we’ll pull into big sandy river beaches for our nightly camping. As you relax and explore our campsite, our guides will prepare a hearty outdoor meal from an on-board larder of fresh and frozen meats, vegetables, and desserts. At the end of the day, you’ll slip into a comfy sleeping bag and drift off to sleep listening to the sounds of the canyon and the river.

All the Grand is the most convenient and relaxing trip, because there’s no need to hike into or out of the canyon at the beginning or the end. Just come to Flagstaff, and we’ll take you to the river, down the river, and back to Flagstaff after the trip.

OPTION: This trip is available as a 7-day tour on a motorized pontoon boat and as a 13-day or 14-day trip on a rowed, oar powered inflatable boat. See details and options for both below.


All the Grand Motorized Pontoon Trip

Motorized pontoon boat in Lava Falls Grand Canyon

All the Grand on motorized pontoon boats is a great way to see the entire Grand Canyon in only 7 days. We’ll also have time for some daytime outings, like swimming and playing in the Little Colorado River, Havasu Creek, and other side canyon streams. We’ll probably stop by to experience the huge Redwall Cavern, check out the Nankoweap ancient ruins, Vasey’s Paradise, and much more.

You must attend an orientation meeting in Flagstaff the night prior to your trip date. Early on the morning of your trip date, we will transport passengers to the launch site at Lees Ferry where you will board the boat and begin the trip. Most of our trips are two boats traveling together, sometimes with passengers doing a partial canyon trip.

At our take-out location at upper Lake Mead we’ll transport you back to Flagstaff, arriving in the late afternoon or early evening.

All the Grand Rowed, Oar Powered Trip — CanyonOars

Rowed inflatable raft in Grand Canyon rapids

Follow the river trail in our 18′ rowed, oar powered inflatable boats, moved by the river, at the river’s own pace. We travel fewer miles each day sometimes spending two nights in the same camp or giving extra time for longer side canyon hikes. The Sandra, the original, fully restored cataract boat built by Norm Nevills in 1947, accompanies this trip. Experience how the pioneers of yesteryear ran the Grand!

OPTION: The June and August trips are for 14 days and HAVE a motorized pontoon support boat. The support boat carries supplies which allows more room on the rowed inflatable boats. You can also ride on the motorized support boat if you want. The July trip is for 13 days, and it DOES NOT HAVE a motorized support boat.

You must attend an orientation meeting in Flagstaff the night prior to your trip date. Early on the morning of your trip date, we will transport passengers to the launch site at Lees Ferry where you will board the boat and begin the trip.
