Although the bottom of the Grand Canyon is far away from the power grid, there is a way to use your CPAP! Just let our office staff know that you will be bringing your CPAP machine and we will supply a 12V battery to run it at night.
What you need to do:
It is ok if your CPAP puts you over the 25-pound weight limit. However, please note that if you are on one of our trips with a charter flight, the airlines may charge a small excess baggage fee.
We have heard of an alternative, although we don’t have any personal experience with it. There’s a single-use nose strip called Provent available by prescription. If Provent is a good fit for you, it might make sense to bring some on your rafting trip instead of a CPAP machine.
Again, please make sure to inform us that you will be bringing a CPAP machine and need us to bring a battery. It is easy for us to accommodate, as long as we know about it well in advance. Then, just enjoy your whitewater vacation and sleep easy!
