It’s Officially Time To Enjoy a Rafting or Motor Boating Trip on the Colorado River

Boating Trip on the Colorado River | Colorado River Discovery

The month of March signifies many things – the changing of the weather, the official start of spring and so much more. For many, it’s a great time to get outdoors and enjoy some nice, warm temperatures. There are plenty of things to do in the springtime in Arizona, including hiking the many trails available and catching a ballgame at one of the many Spring Training facilities in the Phoenix area.

There is one thing you may not have considered that could likely be the most enjoyable activity you do all year. Imagine spending a half or full day relaxing and taking in the breathtaking sights the Colorado River has to offer. The great news is March signals the start of the official season for half and full-canyon rafting trips with Colorado River Discovery.

Our half-day rafting trips are offered from March 1 through November 30, and our full-canyon motor trips take place between March 1 and November 15 each year.

Half-Day Colorado River Rafting Trips

  • And Much More
