Fourteen Grand Canyon Launch Dates Available Now!

From the Grand Canyon River Permits Office. Good luck to everyone!

We have just opened a follow-up lottery for 2015 launch dates at the weighted lottery website (https://npspermits.us/grandcanyon/river).

The lottery will accept applications until Thu, May 21, 2015 at 12:00 PM (noon) Mountain Standard Time. The available launch dates are:

Standard Size Trips
(1 - 16 people):
June 2015: 12, 17
July 2015: 18
August 2015: 5
October 2015: 27
December 2015: 24

Small Size Trips
(1 - 8 people):
May 2015: 30
June 2015: 9
July 2015: 19, 31
August 2015: 2, 8, 16, 30

Winners will have until Fri, May 22, 2015 at 12:00 PM (noon) Mountain Standard Time to pay their nonrefundable deposits ($400 for standard size trips, $200 for small size trips).

We strongly recommended all lottery applications list at least one Potential Alternate Trip Leader (PATL). If the original trip leader becomes unable to go on the river trip, and there are no confirmed PATLs, the trip will be cancelled. PATLs can be added to a river trip by the trip leader only when submitting a lottery application; see Noncommercial River Trip Regulations for clarification.

Sincerely, Grand Canyon River Permits Office
