Tour Itinerary

Depart early in the morning for this exciting, White Water
Experience! Westwind Air Service takes you on a narrated, scenic flight
to Peach Springs, the center of the Hualapai Reservation.  From Peach
Springs transfer by ground with your Native guides down 19 miles of
varied landscape to Diamond Creek to begin your White Water Experience.


You journey along the Colorado River surrounded by stunning scenery,
incredible geology and a timeless sense of peace.  Throughout the day
enjoy a total of 9 sets of rapids that vary in degree (bring lots of
sunscreen and a change of clothes, you are guaranteed to get wet) and
are separated by calm stretches that give you time to dry out in
between.  Your motorized pontoon boat gives you the opportunity to enjoy
the rapids and even motor back through for a second run. 


Part way through the day you’ll land for an adventure at Travertine
Falls.  Here you can rest and relax or hike into this unique waterfall
surrounded by unusual rock formations and partly enclosed in a large
grotto.  A little later you will stop for a picnic lunch on a sandy
beach area and finally unwind with a smooth-water run down the last
stretch before docking at the West Rim.  Here you will thrill to an
exhilarating helicopter lift back up to the rim of the Canyon where your
Westwind Aircraft is waiting to bring you back to Phoenix.  This tour
is the perfect way to be immersed in the mystery and beauty of the Grand
Canyon and is an experience you’ll cherish forever.
