Space is limited!

Throughout the week your guides will take you through great whitewater in some of Washington’s most beautiful places. This river trip is ideal for the experienced kayaker with Class III-IV boating skills and a solid/proven roll. Your paddling skills will be put to the test as you navigate around and through some exciting water features.

If you’re into big water and a thrilling whitewater adventure, then spring and early summer rafting are for you! Nearly all of Washington’s paddling is on snow-melt rivers, and river flows are at their most exciting levels when the spring thaw begins. River levels drop a bit once summer temperatures arrive, so if you’re hesitant, select from our summer/fall trip dates. This trip is generally available from mid-May through September, subject to water levels.
