37' S-RIG

Most commercial outfitters in the Grand Canyon are running S-rigs–one of the most durable and versatile motorized whitewater crafts. Ceiba’s S-rigs are completely adaptable to carry your party of 16 or to be rigged as equipment haulers. They additionally make ideal support vessels for paddle boats, kayaks, and other smaller watercraft. All our motor rigs come w/the Bimini top option. They can be a “lifesaver”during the hot summer months, and everyone loves the Bimini. Worried that you won’t have enough ice? – Not a problem on the 37ft! Nor is rigging or de-rigging the necessary camp gear on a daily basis – it happens fast. Let’s go hiking’!

The 22′ Snout rig is an incredibly versatile motor boat that is also super fun to drive! It’s built on two 22’ pontoons with an aluminum frame in the center. While the number of passengers the Snout can carry depends on the length of your trip and the amount of gear and food you are bringing, it is ideal for smaller parties seeking a shorter trip. If your participant group includes a qualified boatman, we recommend considering the Snout for your Grand Canyon adventure!
