Paddle Trip

Paddling the Grand Canyon in a 15-foot paddle raft is the ultimate way for you to participate in traversing the Canyon. Six paddlers power the boat and a guide steers from the stern, definitely a team effort. The paddle boat is smaller than the oar boats providing quick response and an unmatched ride. Because it carries no camp gear or metal frame, only the day’s few necessities, it is the “sports car” of the river.

Fast, Sporty, Active Paddle Trips

Our highly popular all-paddle trips put you together with other active enthusiasts in four fast, sporty, comfortable paddle rafts. All gear and food is on baggage boats to maximize your safety, comfort and maneuverability. If you desire maximum participation join one of our eight high-energy all-paddle trips. Each is scheduled during the seasonal high water periods to maximize adventure and minimize flatwater paddling. Both full trip and partial trip options are available.

A single paddle boat is available on most scheduled oar trips at a nominal extra cost for the first six people who reserve it. Paddling is physically demanding and not for everyone. Unlike our oar boats where the minimum age is 10, the minimum age for our paddle boats is 14. If you live an active lifestyle and enjoy new challenges you should seriously consider this adventurous option.

Trip Information

One Trip Per Year Rule
Due to limited availability, the National Park Service has limited use in the popular Lees Ferry to Diamond Creek section of the Colorado River to one recreational river trip per individual each calendar year. Because of this regulation, Outdoors Unlimited cannot accept a reservation from any individual who has or will participate in any other full or partial canyon commercial or non-commercial river trip within the same calendar year. If you have already completed or have plans to participate in any other Grand Canyon river trip this year and would like to go again, please respect your fellow boaters by waiting until next year or sometime thereafter to book your next trip. Grand Canyon National Park’s one-trip-per-year rule is strictly enforced.
