On May 24, 1869, John Wesley Powell lead the first expedition through Grand Canyon with a small group destined for a river wilder than anyone could have guessed.

Powell (shown in photo at age 35) assembled ten men and four wooden boats stocked with enough provisions for several months of travel. The trip was full of danger as well as adventure. Part of their challenges came from the extent and size of the rapids along the Colorado larger than their boats could manage.

Now you can enjoy a family safe 1-Day White Water rafting through the Grand Canyon with Grand Canyon Custom Tours. This tour originates from Flagstaff or Williams and returns that same evening. With modern pontoon motorized rafts, you will follow the exact path down the mighty Colorado River that Major John Wesley Powell’s historic 1869 expedition followed. This is the ONLY 1-day option to Whitewater Raft with Helicopter in the Grand Canyon.  You will travel 40 miles down the Colorado River with stops at Travertine Falls and Separation Canyon for lunch and swimming. Rapids are moderate and are sure to excite. Staying dry on this trip is not an option.
