Due to Covid-19 we are modifying our services. We will only have 1 family per boat until we are instructed by the Oregon State Marine Board that it is safe to have multiple groups on a raft. With this change we are changing our pricing. Private rafts will start at $220 for up to 4 participants, an additional $50 per person over groups of 4. Tuesdays will receive an $8 per person discount.
Thank you for your understanding.
Trip Details: We run up to 5 trips a day. Trip duration is an hour and a half round trip, with an hour on the water. We provide a 10 minute bus ride to the river.
Once at the river you will be assigned a guide and fitted for a PFD. We try and keep groups together whenever possible. Rafts hold 7 adult paddlers plus a couple non paddlers.
As the rafts drift away from the boat ramp, your guide will go over paddling commands, how to stay in a raft and other pertinent safety information. They will point out wildlife, tell stories and position the boat for the most strategic water fighting assault.
There are 2 practice rapids prior to the main event. Once everyone is prepped the guide will navigate the raft into the current where you will run the class 3 rapids named “Kenmore”, “The Knotch”, “Souse Hole”, “Three Stooges” and “Ol’ Stogie”. In the heat of the action while getting splashed from all sides, we hope you smile huge for the photographer who is lurking on the bank trying to capture the evidence of who is paddling and who is holding on.
After you have conquered the rapids your guide will play games, let you swim and of course let the adventurous ride the bull!
