Work for the Hatch River Expeditions Food Pack

The Hatch River Expeditions commissary (food pack) facility is located at our warehouse in Marble Canyon, Arizona beneath the Vermilion Cliffs and near Lees Ferry (the put in for Grand Canyon rafting trips. Hatch is a family-owned business that has been providing commercial river rafting trips since 1929. Today, we launch about 60 commercially guided trips per year, each of which needs to be outfitted with food and supplies. The food pack staff is comprised of a small team of 2-3 individuals who outfit the trips and complete other related tasks as necessary.

As Marble Canyon is located in a remote section of Northern Arizona, having your own transportation is highly recommended. The nearest town is Page, Arizona located 47 miles away. With that being said, the Hatch warehouse is located near many National Parks, so if you love the outdoors and have an adventurous spirit, this opportunity may be right for you.
