Grand Canyon Dates Available Now! Jan 8 & 11, 2015

Available 2015 River Launch Date via Call-In System

The Grand Canyon National Park River Permits Office has two 2015 river launch dates available via a call-in system.

The following 2015 launch dates are available on a first-call, first-served basis for live-callers only (must talk to a ranger, no phone messages) through the River Permits Office phone line (M-F, 8am-noon Mountain Standard Time, 800-959-9164 or 928-638-7884) to the first eligible caller who pays the nonrefundable $400 deposit. The one-trip-per-year rule and all other regular rules apply. These dates will remain available until claimed.

Standard Sized Trips: (allows 1 to 16 participants at a time)

January 2015: 8, 11

Grand Canyon River Permits Office

GCPBA appreciates the river permits office making short notice launch dates available to river runners this way via a first-call, first served call-in system, rather than holding a date(s) until a new secondary lottery would be run.

This was one of the proposals we again brought up with them at our annual meeting in October with the Park personnel. We're glad that they saw the merits of it. Hopefully this system will work out well.
