In it’s annual poll, King5 Best Northwest Escapes has awarded Outdoor Adventure Center as 2014’s Best White Water Adventure. How cool is that?

The awards are based on more than 43,000 votes. The voters were rafting experts from the Northwest Washington area.

The fans have spoken. Voter Jared C. stated ”… over all, I give them 9.99 out of 10, because there’s no such thing as a Perfect company, but this one’s as close as it gets.”

Voter Andrew F. was pretty excited: “Absolutely the most fun you could have on the water in Washington.”

Another voter, Michael A., agreed: “Had an excellent time in Index thanks to a great rafting company. Cheers to Outdoor Adventure Center!”

Voter Jason K. had a great time: “Best family based business and great food after the float. Drop in at the River House and enjoy the food on the lawn after your float.”

Outdoor Adventure Center is based in beautiful Index, Washington, near Seattle. It’s only one mile off Highway 2. O.A.C. is considered, by many, to be the best white water rafting company in the West!

Outdoor Adventure Center has some unique advantages over other Washington State rafting companies.  O.A.C. is the only rafting company with river front property, and facilities, on the Skykomish River.

The Adventure Center offers rafting experiences for newcomers as well as seasoned rafters. For families with youngsters, there’s the Family Friendly float trip. For those with more experience, and seeking a thrill, the Adrenaline Pumping Class V White Water of Boulder Drop is available.

Home Base is the River House, a 100 year old restored building. Many rafting adventures include a delicious steak, or tasty vegan meal, access to an outdoor and indoor seating hot tub and a slide show of your unique rafting adventure. Rafters love to unwind, and relax, on our beautiful beachfront property.

And Outdoor Adventure Center doesn’t just offer rafting. Other opportunities include fishing trips, guided hikes to hidden lakes and mines, camping, gold panning, trail rides, eagle and salmon floats and much, much more.

For those seeking to expand their visit, historic Index, Washington offers much to see, taste and do. While it may not exactly be time travel, it sure is fun, enjoyable and relaxing.

A special for May, this deal applies to Wenatchee and North Fork Skykomish river trips only, and when May is over, so is this rare deal!

Wenatchee River Rafting and North Fork Skykomish Rafting are both Class III. Each is special, and unique, in their own way.

Wenatchee River Rafting, launching out of Cashmere Washington, is designed for paddlers from 11 years old to the over 80 set. It’s ideal for family, or friends, who have never had a whitewater rafting experience. We call it rafting on the “dry side.”

People like the Wenatchee River for these reasons: Open canyon scenery and pleasant pace; plenty of Eastern Washington Sunshine; largest whitewater rafting drop, and pool, in Washington State.

All Wenatchee River trips start, on weekends, at 10 a.m. All adventurers are encouraged to have a large meal, and drink plenty of water, before joining their guides. The paddling trip takes four hours.

For May, the cost is half our normal $79.00 per person. What a deal!

North Fork Skykomish Rafting, for confident swimmers, is a five mile aquatic roller coaster of whitewater rafting thrills. We launch out of beautiful Index, Washington, at the confluence of the North Fork of the Skykomish River and Trout Creek.

We encourage you to bring towel, a polypropylene top or a long sleeved fleece, for warmth, and a swimsuit. The rafting trip takes 1/2 day.

The price is half off our normal $95.00 per person. This deal is for May only.

With warm temperatures on the way, and snow melting, Washington State will soon have fresh, rushing whitewater roaring down the rivers. Everything is new at the California Adventure Center. New guides, new tours and new fun. If you’ve been here before, isn’t it time you returned?

They say delayed gratification is a good thing. What are you waiting for? May, and half price whitewater rafting tours, are a dynamic duo! We know you work hard. Isn’t time you played hard?
