The cost per person is $2467. Passengers leave the river by helicopter at Whitmore Wash, River Mile 187.5. This is downstream of Lava Falls (Mile 179.5). The helicopter ride is short (maybe 10 minutes), and takes the passengers to Bar 10 Ranch north of the river, where there is an airstrip and planes to fly the passengers back to Lee's Ferry or to Las Vegas. After all passengers have departed from the helipad at riverside, the river guides continue to Lake Mead (Pearce Ferry, Mile 279.5) where the rafts are dismantled and trucked back to Lee's Ferry.

Each person is responsible for transportation to the Lee's Ferry area and back home, and all personal clothing and gear for use while on the river. Hatch River Expeditions also provides tents and camp chairs as part of the package.
