Canyon Explorations/Expeditions is exclusively an oar and paddle trip company created to provide a unique experience in Grand Canyon. Designed for individuals seeking a participatory river trip style through Grand Canyon National Park, our river trips offer hands-on boating options.
Canyon Explorations' two trip styles are Hybrid trips and All Paddle trips.
Hybrid trips include five oar boats, our lightweight 14-foot paddle boat, and two single inflatable kayaks. Each day, it's your choice—ride in an oar raft or experience the high energy of the paddle boat or inflatable kayaks. All Paddle trips focus solely on paddle boating and include three paddle boats, accompanied by four gear rafts.
On either trip style, expect to be part of a small group with a high guide to participant ratio (6 to 18.)
The CanX experience is enhanced by our flexible on-river itinerary and long trip lengths. Combined, these key features create opportunities for extended hiking in the Canyon’s backcountry and exploring less traveled routes.
Our all-inclusive trip fares and Flagstaff to Flagstaff trip schedule leave you with no surprise logistics to coordinate and a hassle-free travel experience.
We are a family business with operations only in Grand Canyon. For 22 years we have been refining our unique trip experience, combining exploration and adventure with education and environmental awareness.
