White Water Rafting the Grand Canyon in an Oar Boat - Hatch River Expeditions

Hatch oar boats are made from tough hypalon rubber that can withstand the fun and abuse the Colorado River dishes out. The rafts are 18 feet long and eight feet wide and will fit a guide and four passengers.

The guide does all of the rowing with two wooden oars. Oar boat rafting is at Colorado River speed – about four miles per hour on flat water and you-know-how-fast in the rapids!

With self-bailing floors and custom frames, these are the most comfortable rowboats on the water. Each raft is capable of hauling your rafting necessities.
