At this point, reservations are open for this trip, and we require a minimum $800 deposit/person to reserve your space on the 2018 Grand Canyon expedition. This deposit is non-refundable as are any additional payments towards your trip. We highly encourage you to purchase trip insurance to cover in the event that you are unable to make the trip.
The balance of the full amount of the trip price is due by February 28th, 2018.

• Initial $800 deposit is due to hold reserved spot for the trip and is fully non-refundable.
• Final Balance is due by February 28th, 2018. No refunds are available, although reservation can be transferred to other Current Adventures approved participants with prior approval from Current Adventures and payment of a $100 service fee.
We have chartered the 08/29/18 motorized raft/ kayak support date with AZRA (dba Grand Canyon Discovery), a renowned permitted outfitter on the Grand Canyon. They will be providing the raft support, food, etc. for this trip. Current Adventures will be handling all of the details of group reservations, pre-trip training and information dispersal, payment collections and more. Please Direct all of your communications , payments and questions to Current Adventures with regard to this trip and any elements of it.
Deposit amount due: $600 ( cash or check, $630 with Credit Card payment)
Deposits are non-refundable, and will hold your space on this trip until such time as final payments are due February 28th, 2018 (02/28/2018). After that date, (unless alternate arrangements are agreed upon by Current Adventures) non-receipt of the remaining balance of your trip will be grounds for your space being made available to others, and the forfeiture of your original deposit and any payments made to that point. Due to the charter nature and popularity of this trip we cannot provide refunds of deposits or payments once they are made, since we pass them on to our Grand Canyon partner as non-refundable payments.
Deposits can be accepted in the form of cash, wire transfer or check or money order made out to Current Adventures and mailed to us here at P.O. Box 828, Lotus, CA 95651. For additional and final payments, we can accept Mastercard or Visa. CC payments for the balance of the trip costs will actually be run through AZRA’s account, also known as Grand Canyon Discovery, once your deposit is paid to Current Adventures to secure your space. If you choose to pay your final payment by credit card you can use the attached Credit Card payment form and e-mail or fax back to us at 530-333-1291.

Thanks again for your continued interest in our trips and we look forward to spending even more time in this magical hideaway from the industrialized world. To me it is a window into what the world was like before we poured concrete over most of it and “connected everyone and everything via cell phones and technology”. Being able to share it with friends and people who can appreciate the majesty of it all is the coolest thing I can imagine!
