Sharing the Grand Canyon experience with you since 1969, Outdoors Unlimited...

Sharing the Grand Canyon experience with you since 1969, Outdoors Unlimited offers the best in paddle and oar boat rafting adventures. Rafting the Grand Canyon offers a phenomenal variety of vistas, camps, waterfalls, rapids, side canyons, archaeological ruins, and other attraction sites to enjoy and explore. Allowing time to visit these places is the essence of every Outdoors Unlimited Grand Canyon Rafting trip. Our paddle and oar powered whitewater trips take a minimum of 13 days to traverse all 240 miles of the Colorado River through Grand Canyon National Park down to Lake Mead. Recognizing that you may not have time to do a Full Canyon Trip we offer the opportunity to do either the Upper Canyon or Lower Canyon. We also offer Paddle Trip options as well as Extended Spring & Fall trips.

About 15 years ago, an old friend and I were talking about things we'd like to do when we hit some special birthdays. For 60, we talked about rafting Grand Canyon. I pretty much forgot about it until last year when he called me up and asked, "Do you remember when we talked about rafting Grand Canyon for our 60th?... More

This has been one of my bucket list items for many, many years and I was finally spurred to go when a friend expressed interest. I knew I wanted to paddle a RAFT and be involved rather than sit on a motorized BOAT. I found Outdoors Unlimited (OU) thru a Google search and my first contact with the company was... More

The guides of Outdoors Unlimited that we had on our five day Grand Canyon rafting trip over Memorial Day, 2016 were absolutely the best; I loved everyone one of them, led by Ben Fadeley, with Morgan Clayton, Travis Lamb, and Carl Rice, and last but not least, Josh Bruner and Kevin Muller. These folks made the trip, since the Grand... More

Had high exceptions and OU team beat them in every way. From organization to TLC, excellent food, huge attention to guest care and cleanliness....it was awesome. It was very clear they knew exactly what was required to get "unloaded" from life for 9 days. Guides we very social, respectful, and also disciplined in keeping the herd moving. I had nightmares...

Our group of 6 just returned from doing the 8-day lower Colorado River paddle raft trip. What an excellent trip. We hiked down Bright Angel trail from Grand Canyon National Park; a rather difficult hike one-mile down; our muscles hurt for three days.

The title says it all. 6 of us joined a group that totaled 24 paddlers and 8 guides for 8 days on the lower section of the Colorado through the Grand Canyon.
