Thanks So Much! It was great to have so much input from Scott at the put-in.
Each company's raft set up is unique and we all appreciated
how much time Scott spent with us setting things up.
The level of behind the scenes organization that went on in the weeks
prior to our trip also made getting on the river that much easier.
We of course did not see any of that but it was very evident how well things were put together.
Several of our group had been guiding on other rivers for 20 years or more and I heard nothing
but positive comments about the gear. "

consisted of experienced rafters that own our
gear. (Most of them are heavily worn 14 foot rafts.)
For the Grand Canyon trip, we decided to rent
in order to have 18 foot boats and to simplify
our travel with the food pack. Our experience
on the river was fantastic and the service that
Ceiba provided was part of our success. We all
agreed that on a scale of 1-10, the gear was a
10! Our food pack had us all in awe and rated
a 10+. We ate good and everything we could have
needed. We arrived at Diamond on day 14 and were
able to give ice away to a party that was continuing
down river. Thanks for the service you provide!"

my sixth canyon trip and first time with Ceiba.
The small touches were really appreciated such
as a strap bag and sand stake with each raft and

the food was a good balance of tasty and reasonable
prep time. If I do get the chance to go again,
I will be sure to suggest Ceiba to the trip leader."
