The Grand Canyon, one of the seven wonders of the world, is visited by approximately 4.6 million people, annually. A fraction of those, some 26,000, are able to engage in the ultimate adventure and experience rafting some of the best whitewater in the world, on the Colorado River at the bottom of Grand Canyon. With 16 outfitters and over a thousand trips to choose from, the planning process for this bucket list trip can be overwhelming, and given the limited number of permits issued annually for these rafting trips, spaces are often reserved a year or more in advance making it difficult to book a trip on short notice. Advantage Grand Canyon Adventure Rafting, a free service, is a trip aggregator for all commercial Grand Canyon Rafting Trips. They work closely with all of the outfitters approved by the National Park and not only have the latest availability information, but are first to learn about last minute cancellations, resulting in the ability of successfully placing individuals on last minute rafting trips.
By calling or visiting Advantage Grand Canyon (http://www.AdvantageGrandCanyon.com), users can browse through trips, select their ideal adventure and if unavailable, place their name on a waitlist. AGC representative, and 11 year Grand Canyon river guide Erin Kelly states that “there is an advantage to placing your name on a waitlist as a large number of cancellations occur when final payment is due, which is 60, 90 or 120 days prior to the trip’s start.”
She adds “We have noticed that there are two types of clients, those who plan in advance, and those who book last minute”. For those early planners who book in advance, it is noteworthy to mention that 2016 rafting dates and prices have just been released, and for 2015 hopefuls, potential cancellations present an opportunity for an ideal last minute vacation.
Erin Kelly further explains, “Those who have booked a year or more in advance, have placed a deposit on their spaces which is somewhere between $300-$600/person. In an effort to minimize losses should they decide to cancel, clients often do so at the final payment due date, and lose only part or all of their deposit as opposed to the full trip fare. This makes space for late comers, and we are often able to find our clients their ideal trip with very short notice.”
This trip of a lifetime allows people the opportunity to experience close to 130 rapids, including the most famous world class whitewater in North America, as well as hundreds of side hiking opportunities. On these 3-18 day trips, rafters can find hidden treasures and waterfalls at the bottom of the Grand Canyon- such as Havasu Creek, Deer Creek Falls, Nakoweap Granaries and the Little Colorado River, to name a few.
