Grand Outfitter Recomendations

My folks want to do a commercial raft trip down the Grand Canyon. Any recommendations on good outfitters would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'd highly recommend OARS. They've been in biz for many years and run a very tight ship. Do it.

Go with PRO

We used PRO out of Flagstaff, AZ and they were slick. They prepack all of your coolers with food in the reverse order you'll use it. The recipes were awesome. We also rented two 18 footers and they were flawless. I'ts obviously an "n" of 1 but I'd use them again. We went with the big eater option and it was too much food. Go middle of the road on portion sizes....

I'd recommend Moki Mac. I think they're the smallest outfitter in Grand Canhyon and you might even be able to talk them into letting you row the baggage boat if you're so inclined.
