As with all activities, there are inherent risks associated with rafting. This is one reason to go on a guided trip, as our staff's job is to minimize said risk and make your trip a memorable experience.

The pacific northwest is blessed with great water all year round. That said, those who want a more action-packed adventure should try rafting during the spring when rain and snow melt bring the flows up. Summer flows are great for families and those interested in a more relaxing experience. That said, with many sections to choose from, exhilarating whitewater can be found all summer long.
