Travel Destinations (C.A.L.L.)

C.A.L.L. program headed through the Grand Canyon by boat

APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. – Central Arizona College is offering two opportunities this year for area residents to tour 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 May 15-17 and September 21-23 and include 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 9:30 a.m. from the campus, located at 273 Old West Highway, Apache Junction, AZ 85219.

The cost of the trip is $498 plus $89 for the annual membership in C.A.L.L. (unless the traveler has a current membership) and is limited to the first 48 registrants.

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 experience of riding some rapids.
