I have done two Grand Canyon trips outfitted by Moenkopi River works. Brady Black the owner and his crew went above and beyond to make the trips great. The gear was perfect for our trips and the shuttles were great.

Take Out Options

Weigh your take out options

Diamond Creek

Diamond Creek Road, on the Hualapai Reservation, is the first possible take-out option, 225 river miles below Lee's Ferry.  The first 20 miles of road out of the canyon are rough dirt road, that can occasionally wash out during flash floods in our monsoon season (July - September).  The Hualapai Tribe requires a $60 permit fee for each trip participant, driver & vehicle (i.e. 20 permits for 16 people, 2 drivers & 2 vehicles); Moenkopi can easily add these permit fees to your group invoice (we add $4.20 per permit to cover admin & CC fees).

 

 

Pros:

  • earlier take-out

  • shorter drive back to Flagstaff

  • avoid flat water at the top of Lake Mead

Pearce Ferry

Our favorite take-out, Pearce Ferry is the lower take-out option, approximately 280 river miles below Lee's Ferry.  Below Diamond Creek, you'll run the Lower Granite Gorge rapids (about 12 miles) before running out on the slow-moving headwaters of Lake Mead.  The flat water can be done as a night-float (with all the boats tied together and the outside oars removed in case you bump into a sand bank) which makes this whole stretch possible to do in 24 hours.  Without the night float, you'll typically want 1-3 nights below Diamond.  You'll save approx. $1500 with Hualapai fees and shuttle fees using the Pearce Ferry take-out.

Pros:

  • see the entire Grand Canyon

  • less expensive (no additional fees)

  • only 7 miles of well-maintained dirt road
