Why Choose Arizona Rafting as Your Salt River Tour Guide?


The Salt River is very remote. It is located on the White Mountain Apache Reservation, 45 miles from the nearest town and the basics of civilization.

In this primitive environment, you need an outfitter that provides the basic necessities for health and comfort in addition to what is most important—a fun-loving, educated guide that keeps safety first and foremost. Here is how we do it….

Professional, experienced, and fun-loving guides return year after year to share the canyon and its secrets. They always put your safety first.

Top-of-the-line rafting and camping equipment you can rely on through the roughest rapids or the most challenging weather conditions.

Great looking, top-quality boats. The best in the industry!

Clean, bright, private, and off-the-ground clothes changing facilities.

Weather tight kitchen facilities with propane powered refrigeration as well as food grade stainless steel preparation tables, where on full-day trips, we prepare a healthy and delicious hot beef, chicken, and/or vegetarian option fajita lunch.

Reliable vehicles. Remember, you are miles from the closest mechanic’s shop. We take pride in our vehicles' reliability.

We wash our wetsuits, booties, and splash jackets with soap and disinfectant chemicals after EVERY use. Gas-powered pumps fill wash barrels to assure thorough cleaning. Cold water and cold weather protective clothing is available to you at no charge.
