Grand Canyon 2019 - 23 Launch Dates Available Now!

This is from the Grand Canyon River Permits Office. Some great Spring dates are available! Good luck to everyone!

We have just opened a follow-up lottery for 2019 launch dates at the weighted lottery website ( The lottery will accept applications until Thursday, February 14, 2019, at 12:00 PM (noon) Mountain Standard Time. The available launch dates are:

Standard Size Trips (1 - 16 people):
March 2019: 14, 17, 18, 21
April 2019: 1, 14
May 2019: 3, 4, 5, 6, 12, 13
August 2019: 13
December 2019: 2, 16, 30

Small Size Trips (1 - 8 people):
April 2019: 3, 7, 13, 21
June 2019: 4
July 2019: 16, 24

Winners will have until Friday, February 15, 2019, 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.

The Grand Canyon National Park River Office is open Monday to Friday. Emails and phone calls received on a weekend will not be replied to until Monday.
