Go to this resource.

Go down to Gear List - Jan Taylor to get an overview of what gear you might need and at the end she lists what outfitters usually provide.

This page tells you about the Canyon.

Grand Canyon National Park (U.S. National Park Service)


Grand Canyon National Park - River Trips and Permits (U.S. National Park Service)

You should know that if you don't want a motor option, you may be able to float naturally and hike out at Phantom or donkey ride or something. The donkey takes your pack or some combo thereof. It is a grueling hike but I would also prefer the brutality of that to the idea of riding. Maybe just make a tow strap and let him pull you up?

Lots of different ways to do it. Hells Canyon in Idaho would be hot with a few big rapids. 3-4 day trip. The Main Salmon in Idaho would be 5 to 6 days as well as several other stretches.
