* We recently quoted this to a 16 person group for a 16 day trip with five rafts. That's less than $55 per day. We have outfitted thousands of Grand Canyon trips, and we realize that each trip is different and we love working with our customers to give them their unique Canyon experience. We always go the extra miles to give you the trip of your dreams. Call or email us for your custom quote.

- Food Pack
At Canyon REO we combine our love of the river with our love of great food.
Canyon REO will work with you to customize and create your own menu from our extensive list of recipes. Each food pack is customized for your group and we take care of all the shopping and packing for you. Using our outfitter-grade coolers combined with our solid (no air) block ice, and expert packing abilities will ensure you have fresh tasty meals everyday of your trip. This package also includes the charcoal and propane needed to prepare all of these delicious meals.
We appreciate fresh fruit and veggies with our river lunches, the smell of shish kebabs sizzling over coals, the taste of dutch oven brownies when they’re still warm and slightly gooey, and half & half in our fresh, gourmet coffee. In our twenty-plus years of experience as private boaters we have developed menus and kitchen systems that work to meet the special needs of private boaters.
We also understand that food preferences vary. We have accommodated common and uncommon food allergies, and plenty of vegetarian and organic food preferences.
Have a look at our Food Pack Page to learn more about our amazing food packs.
- Deluxe Kitchen
Our kitchen equipment and systems have been tested and refined during hundreds of river trips, and thousands of hours cooking on the river. We make sure that everything you'll need to prepare food is included, clean, and in excellent working order. We provide general instructions for setup and use, if necessary.
On the river, there is no "right" and "wrong" way to do things. There are ways that work, and ways that don't. Our kitchens include sufficient equipment to get you started, with the flexibility to organize things the way that works best for your group.
- Safety Equipment
We include with the deluxe package a major and minor medical kit that meets or exceeds the NPS regulations for river rafters.
- Toilet & Handwash
Our toilet system is a standard 25 mil rocket box. Rental includes a custom fitted seat inside a separate box. Toilet supplies and disposables are also included with your Deluxe Outfitting Package.
Includes 2 Wishy-Washy Handwash Stations, per NPS requirements.
Canyon REO provides one-stop, stress-free shuttle choices for Grand Canyon Colorado River rafters. There are many ways to set up shuttles – shuttling personal vehicles, changing pickup/drop off locations, or even a little bit of both.
Depending on your group needs we include a number of shuttle options to help get you to and from the river and anywhere in between. Whether you choose a group shuttle, transporting you and your group in our vehicles, or a vehicle shuttle, where we transport your vehicles to and from the river, or a mix of both, we can accommodate you needs. We will work with you to figure out the most convenient and cost effective shuttle scenario for you and your group based on where people are coming from and going to.
Have a look at our Shuttles page to learn more about our shuttles.
