Tour Itinerary

Depart early in the morning for this exciting, white water experience! Westwind Air Service takes you on a narrated, scenic flight to Peach Springs, the center of the Hualapai Reservation. From Peach Springs transfer by ground with your native guides down 19 miles of varied landscape to Diamond Creek to begin your white water experience.

Journey along the Colorado River surrounded by stunning scenery, incredible geology and a timeless sense of peace. Throughout the day enjoy a total of nine sets of rapids that vary in degree (bring lots of sunscreen and a change of clothes, you are guaranteed to get wet) and are separated by calm stretches that give you time to dry out in between. Your motorized pontoon boat gives you the opportunity to enjoy the rapids and even motor back through for a second run.

Partway through the day, you’ll land for an adventure at Travertine Falls. Here you can rest and relax or hike into this unique waterfall surrounded by unusual rock formations and partly enclosed in a large grotto.

A little later you will stop for a picnic lunch on a sandy beach area and finally unwind with a smooth-water run down the last stretch before docking at the West Rim.

Here you will thrill to an exhilarating helicopter lift back up to the rim of the Canyon where your Westwind Aircraft is waiting to bring you back to Phoenix.

This tour is the perfect way to be immersed in the mystery and beauty of the Grand Canyon and is an experience you’ll cherish forever.
