Event Highlights

The Grand Canyon is one of the most amazing features on the planet, descending over a mile into the earth and as much as 18 miles in width. Join us on a 4-day raft trip with a Biblical Christian perspective! This trip will encourage your faith as our guides reveal the truth of God’s creation found in this gigantic remnant of the Biblical Flood.


Dinner Cruise on Lake Meade


Tours of Hoover Dam

Horseback riding, horseshoe pitching, skeet shooting, and other activities are available for our fun-filled day. In the evening, there is a teaching on the creationist’s view of Grand Canyon by Dr. Terry Mortenson, a boot stompin’ Western show, followed by stories of mountain men, Indians and an introduction of “manifest destiny” from a Christian viewpoint by Bill Potter.

Overnight accommodation options include sleeping in a Conestoga covered wagon, on the beautiful deck or in the lodge. The next morning, an exhilarating helicopter ride will whisk us to the Canyon floor where the lower 50 miles of Grand Canyon are explored for two and a half days. Finishing on Lake Mead, the last 40 miles are traveled by jet-boat to meet an air-conditioned motor coach for the return to Las Vegas, arriving by 6:00 PM on Tuesday, August 15.
