Choose between 4 exhilarating rivers:
The Sauk River is located at the foot of the Cascades and is known for it's non-stop action! It's named after the Sauk-Suiattle tribe and is a tributary of the Skagit River. Mountainous terrain and wildlife serve as the backdrop of the 9-mile stretch of nearly continuous Class III and Class IV whitewater. You'll experience the thrills of "Alligator Drop," "Jaws" and "Popeye."
The Wenatchee River is one of the most popular rafting and kayaking rivers in the state of Washington because of its exhilarating rapids. The famous "Boulder Bend," "Rock and Roll," and "Snowblind" are all rated Class III based on their enormous sizes and are sure to give you an exciting ride!
White Salmon River
The White Salmon River has rapids ranging from Class III like "Top Drop" and "Rattlesnake" to the notorious (and optional) Class V, 10-foot waterfall Husum Falls. Enjoy the beauty of the boulder strewn river and basalt walled gorge as well as the heart-pounding whitewater!
Commonly called the "last summer run," the Tieton River is a great way to end the summer rafting season. While it's normally a creek, the Tieton rages into class III+ fury as the Rimrock Dam releases heavy water during the month of September.
- Rafters must be at least 10 years old to participate
- To raft Husum Falls, a 10-foot waterfall on the White Salmon River, rafters must be at least 12 years old
- You will have the opportunity to opt out of riding the falls if desired or if you're under the age of 12
Approximately 3-4 hours with 2-3 hours of rafting.

"Rafting the Tieton with Nels, our guide, was fantastic. He is a highly skilled rafting guide, and we had a real blast on the river! A word of warning: if it's chilly, be sure to dress warmly! The water is COLD!"
"Wonderful. We had such a great time."
"My family and I can't put into words how much fun we had.. I'd recommend this to anyone! Our instructor Michael couldn't have done a better job. He was extremely knowledgable and very funny. The next time our family books this trip we will request him. Thanks so much, The Maxwell family"
