Each Grand Canyon river rafting company is different, but most will tell you there are certain items to bring with you on your river rafting trip, and some to leave at home.
Of course you'll need to bring clothing such as shorts, t-shirts, and a bathing suit. Most companies recommend at least one change of shoes (that can get wet), a jacket or sweatshirt, and rain gear. Some require hats, sunscreen, and your own towel and biodegradable soap.
Most companies supply all the food, non-alcoholic drinks, tents, sleeping pads, and sleeping bags. Others require you to provide some of your own gear. Some supply limited alcoholic beverages, while others require you to buy your own and bring them along; they will simply transport them for you.
Companies will also supply you dry bags for your gear, and a dry box for camera equipment and other items. Most companies also send out detailed packets of information with their particular requirements as soon as you book your Grand Canyon river rafting adventure.
