Thank you to everyone who spoke up or wrote to their Congresspeople regarding the recent possible government shutdown. At Grand Canyon Whitewater we were on the edge of our seats awaiting the outcome. As CNN.com’s front page story explained, river rafting outfitters and the folks ready to head out on their bucket list rafting adventure would have been hit pretty hard. For the duration of the shutdown, all rafting trips scheduled to launch would have come to a screeching halt without the assurance of a re-schedule due to Park regulations. Yikes, that wouldn’t have been fun. Fortunately we avoided that mess and we were able to launch our Colorado River trips as scheduled. We thank you for all of you who spoke out!
If you have any questions regarding your rafting trip, or wanting to raft the Colorado River, please call Grand Canyon Whitewater at 1-800-343-3121.
