CEIBA is home to the Whole Shabang!

The Whole Shabang is a completely outfitted, entirely customizable package with everything your group needs: one to eight boats, equipment, food and shuttles. Our office will work closely with your group to develop a Whole Shabang that fulfills your ideal boating trip. There will be no hidden costs - damage deposit and Hualapai fees (if applicable) are included up front. Our expert staff will then prepare all the boats and equipment; work closely with you on your menu planning; shop your food and pack the coolers; and provide round trip shuttles to and from Flagstaff – all with a smile!

Grand Canyon Raft Rentals Ceiba Adventures

"We would not have been able to do this trip without all of the support from the whole team at Ceiba. From our first tentative questions about renting equipment, to salad and dessert on our last night on the river, to our cars waiting for us in Peach Springs, everything was consistently better than we hoped for. They truly cared about doing everything they could to give us the trip of a lifetime, and they succeeded. Without hesitation, I would recommend them to anyone looking for any kind of support on a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon."
