One of the great features of a raft trip is the capability of bringing lots of fresh food along! Crisp salad greens, tasty melons, thick steaks, salmon filets, whole grain breads, pastas, an abundance of fruits, vegetables, and more are packed away in large iced coolers and sealed boxes. Our emphasis is on healthy wholesome meals cooked in classic outdoor style. Baked dutch oven desserts and casseroles are also standard menu items. All meals are served help-your-self buffet style and in abundant quantities customary to the outdoor experience. Choice of seating is up to you, but the view is pretty nice anywhere you sit!
You will be delightfully surprised by the quality and variety of our river menu. A hearty breakfast is the key to making the most of an active day in the outdoors. The day starts with gallons of fresh brewed cowboy coffee, hot tea, fruit juice and fresh fruit to wake up to. Traditional hot breakfast is served to the sound of the conch shell horn to let you know it is hot and ready to eat. Breakfasts include eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes and french toast. Cereals, granola, yogurt and milk are also served every morning.
Lunches range from a choice of freshly made sandwich spreads, deli meats, cheeses, a variety of breads, fruit and all the trimmings. The dinner menu features a different entree every evening and includes generously cut steaks (filets and ribeyes), chicken fajitas, salmon filets, linguine pesto, to name but a few. Each entree is accompanied by several other complimentary courses such as: a salad of the day; rice, veggies, pasta or potato as appropriate; and, of course, dessert!
We offer meatless alternatives to all of the meals we serve and carry plentiful amounts of fresh fruits and produce. If your requirements prevent you from eating any animal products at all, you should plan to bring along some of the food supplements that you commonly use. Please advise us ahead of time and we will provide for storage on the rafts as needed. It is also possible to ship your supplements to us ahead of time and we will pack them in advance making things easier for both of us (especially if you're hiking in to join the trip at Phantom Ranch!).
Your guides will do all of the cooking leaving you free to enjoy each unique campsite. If you wish to learn to bake using a dutch oven covered with glowing coals, swap recipes or cooking secrets, or just try a joke out on the cook crew, wander over and join us in the kitchen as we prepare meals to match your appetite!
