Between each Grand Canyon rafting trip, all of the rafts and river equipment are transported back to our Flagstaff warehouse where we disassemble every piece and meticulously inspect, sanitize, detail and repair if needed. All Arizona River Runners gear is then re-assembled, rafts are reloaded, and transported back to Lee’s Ferry, for the next journey into the Grand Canyon. We have provided the highest quality equipment for your expedition, and it’s all been prepared with care and consideration to make it both exciting and relaxing!
