To see the Grand Canyon from a different point of view, consider taking a rafting trip down the Colorado River. If you're not up for an adventurous whitewater experience, consider a daytrip with a company like Glen Canyon Float Trips, which offers half-day and full-day trips in the northeastern section of the canyon on calm waters.
If you're looking for a more intense daytrip, travel with Hualapai River Runners. This company takes passengers through the westernmost part of the canyon between Diamond Creek and Lake Mead where the river is rougher.
For a more extensive rafting trip, O.A.R.S, Canyon Explorations/Expeditions and Outdoors Unlimited all offer multi-day trips. However, because these companies only offer oar and paddle boat tours, you'll need to be confident in your rafting/paddling skills. If you'd rather not row or paddle yourself, Wilderness River Adventures offer motorized raft tours.
No matter which trip you take, make sure to pack a change of clothes, water and sunscreen. Schedules and prices depend on the company and the type of rafting experience offered.
