Central Arizona Lifelong Learners program headed through the Grand Canyon by boat
August 19, 2008
APACHE JUNCTION, AZ – Central Arizona College is offering two opportunities this academic year for people to see the Grand Canyon from a water view.
As part of the Central Arizona Lifelong Learners (C.A.L.L.) program, travelers will explore one of the world’s seven natural wonders by gliding along the Colorado River on a pontoon boat through 40 scenic miles of Arizona’s most famous natural landmark.
The three-day trips are scheduled for Friday through Sunday, Sept. 19-21, and Tuesday through Thursday, May 19-21.
The adventure includes two nights of lodging (two per room) at the Hualapai Lodge in Peach Springs, a helicopter ride to the rim of the canyon, and bus transportation from Central’s Superstition Mountain Campus. The bus will depart at 9 a.m. from the campus located at 273 East Old West Highway in Apache Junction.
C.A.L.L. members will pay $549 for the September trip or $559 to take the May journey. The non-member fee is $638 in September and $648 in May but includes a one-year membership to the Central Arizona Lifelong Learners program.
Other amenities featured on the trip include lunch on a sandy beach under the towering cliffs and rock formations of the canyon, an optional hike to Travertine Falls, and the thrill of riding real rapids.
