Great Whitewater All Season!

Monday, December 1st, 2014

One of the common questions we get about our whitewater rafting trips is when is the best time to go for rapids?

The Grand Canyon and Colorado River are controlled by the Glen Canyon Dam.

Because the water is controlled by the dam it  does not have huge fluctuations due to spring run off.

This means we have great water all summer long!
