6 - 7 DAY EXPEDITION
BEVERAGES » Water and low-calorie lemonade are available in unlimited quantities on the boats, and in camp. Western does not provide beer, liquor, or soda pop. Each guest may bring one case (24) of additional canned beverages. For guests flying on the charter flight from Las Vegas to Marble Canyon, all beverages other than liquor must be purchased after your flight at the Service Station/Convenience Store across the street from the airstrip at Marble Canyon Lodge. Liquor is not available at the Marble Canyon Lodge, and must be purchased in Las Vegas before your flight. Liquor will be included in the 25 lbs limit per person or there will be $15 charge. TSA regulations require that liquor be under 140 proof and stored in the original container. Glass containers of liquor may be stored in a protected place on the boats, but glass containers of beer and soda are not allowed.
VALUABLES » You will want to have photo ID, a major credit card, and some cash for gratuities. All other valuables and jewelry should be left at home or in a safety deposit box at your hotel. In addition, as a safety precaution we suggest that you not wear rings on the river. Also, each year a few of our guests traveling on airlines arrive without luggage. With this in mind, we suggest you carry with you medications, prescription glasses, and anything you may not be able to replace the evening before your trip departs.
EXTRA LUGGAGE » Transfer all your personal clothing and gear which you will need on the river expedition to a small lightweight duffle bag. Identify duffle bag with label, and leave any extra suitcases at your hotel. Guests of the Las Vegas Marriott may leave luggage at their hotel for a nominal fee per bag (non-guests slightly more). If you are staying at another property you should check with that hotel regarding luggage storage. Please DO NOT BRING SUITCASES on your river trip - or duffle bags with hard bottom or wheels. As part of your camping equipment package, we provide a water-resistant bag in which you will place your duffle bag as well as the sleeping bag that we provide.
Grand Canyon National Park Conservation Fund This is an optional fee. To help protect the rivers and canyon, you will note that a one dollar per day, per person, contribution for each day you are on the river has been added to your invoice.
One Trip per Year Rule: Due to high demand in the Grand Canyon, the Park Service limits guests to only one river trip through Grand Canyon per year. This applies to both Private and Professionally Guided trips.
