We had such a great experience with Zoller's. We did the Middle Gorge as a family of 5 with kids ages 7, 8 and 11, plus two additional adults. None of us were experienced rafters and all were a bit nervous to start. Our guide was Ben and he took great care of us. He was very clear in his directions, and we felt very safe the entire time. Our 7-year-old is on the petite side, so our biggest concern was her not falling out. He encouraged our son to try things he was hesitant to try. During the slower part of the trip, he told some great stories and gave great information. Husum Falls is an option for the trip we took (for the adults). Ben gave us honest information about how the falls had been running this time of year which allowed us to make an informed decision about whether or not to go over the falls. We opted not to, though those of our party who live locally plan to go back when water levels are lower. Awesome trip and would recommend Zoller's to anyone!See more..
I loved this experience! It felt like a great combination of adventure, adrenaline, pushing myself to do things I was nervous about, but also professionally run, which gave me confidence about the safety. My guide was Durham, who was awesome. Very friendly and kept things light. I fell off the raft at one point which I think would have freaked me out but he responded by joking about it (while also pulling me in), which I actually think was the perfect response as it made me laugh and not panic. All the guides I interacted with seemed great. Did the half day trip. I'm glad I didn't do the full day as my toes started getting cold (even though it was 100 degrees)! So anyone prone to cold I would definitely recommend some type of appropriate sock (in addition to what the booties they give you). Would definitely do it again!See more..
5.0River Drifters(140 reviews) - River Drifters- DO IT! River Rafting & Tubing
Peter Ely was the best raft guide that anyone in my group has ever had, and we are all seasoned rafters. He was absolutely hilarious, had excellent communication and people skills, "boatloads" of confidence, and was very clearly an experienced and competent guide. We had the best time, we will be back, and we will be requesting Peter again. Thank you Peter for so many stories, laughs, and a wonderful whitewater adventure. Also- Husum Falls was SUCH a breathtaking experience! DO IT! You won't regret it. 10/10 would recommend River Drifters- the extra 2 miles at the beginning were simply gorgeous and full of thrills.See more..
5.0Methow Rafting(129 reviews) - Wonderful guides for a beautiful river experience Thursday: 9:00 AM - 8:00 PM River Rafting & Tubing • Adrenaline & Extreme Tours • Boat Tours • Nature & Wildlife Tours • Kayaking & Canoeing
We had a fantastic trip with Methow River Raft and Kayak. Our guides could not have been more friendly and generous with their time and energy, especially offering to have all of our children in one raft while the adults were in another. Nick spent the entire trip entertaining and teaching our children the science behind rafting while Elise took the grownups and offered great stories and information about the Methow River and the valley. I would highly recommend this company,See more..
I have been rafting with River Recreation since 2005. Every year I take a group of friends and make some of my greatest memories. The staff are hilarious, well trained and safety conscious always. I would put my life in their hands and no one else’s every time. Wes is their most senior guide, with 26 years of experience. He inspires confidence, puts everyone at ease and makes sure that there is plenty of laughter and fun on the river. No need to pay for camping if you book with River Recreation, the camping is free at the best and most beautiful places on Washington’s 8 rivers for white water rafting!!See more..
I’d like to begin this review with saying this is the most organized rafting companies we have used. From the distribution of suits to the waivers, keys and photos. We initially had a booking with a different company that did not work out and with a short window of booking PDX Rafting was able to accommodate our large party 14 (supposed to be 16). Scott was our rep and was incredibly sweet and attentive. Our guide Josh was so professional and patient with our lack of experience! Only two of us on the raft had done it before. We go to Portland annually so we can’t wait to go back next year for more. Thank you guys for keeping us safe and a great experience!See more..
5.0Rill Adventures(65 reviews) - Excellent kayak outing! Thursday: 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM River Rafting & Tubing • Sightseeing Tours
Our original tubing trip on the Lower Yakima was cancelled due to a nearby fire so we switched to kayaking on the Upper Yakima instead and I’m so glad it worked out that way. My teen sons and I loved having individual inflatable kayaks and had a blast during our three hours on the river! Pulled off to check out spooky tunnel #47 on the nearby Palouse to Cascades Trail, as well. Rill employees were very responsive, organized, and friendly, and the equipment was clean and well maintained. Would definitely rent from them again.See more..

5.0Columbia River Outdoors(31 reviews) - Fantastic Personal Rafting Experience Thursday: 7:30 AM - 8:30 PM River Rafting & Tubing • Adrenaline & Extreme Tours • Boat Tours
My husband, 9 year old son and myself did a half day trip yesterday with Max. It exceeded my expectations. Max was a fabulous guide. He had the perfect demeanor, was very knowledgeable, and shared a lot of interesting information about the Salmon River. I loved the small group experience and would absolutely recommend this to anyone visiting the area. My son has spent the entire day asking when we can come back and do the full day trip.See more..
4.5Alpine Adventures(27 reviews) - Great Rafting Thursday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM River Rafting & Tubing • Adrenaline & Extreme Tours • Boat Tours • Private Tours • Day Trips
This was. A great beginner/ introductory experience for me and my friend. Our guides Ally and Joel, made our entire experience as they were high energy, kind, and relatable. Joel was super informative and gave us a better understanding about WA and what the state has to offer. Ally made sure that us and Joel were safe just in case anything were to happen. Overall, if you are looking to try rafting the Wenatchee route is perfect for beginners and you will have some of the best water rafting guides out there!See more..
We just finished a great white water rafting trip with our guide, Tyler. He was great at leading the kids through he rapid telling the kids what to expect and how we will do this to stay safe and have fun. One of my kids was apprehensive and I know because if Tyler she quickly settled in and let her worries go. It was a beautiful ride! Thanks for such ages at trip! See more..
5.0Troutwaters Outfitters(5 reviews) - Great fishing and great people, what's not to like? River Rafting & Tubing • Fishing Charters & Tours
I've utilized the guide service at Troutwaters Outfitters on two separate occasions. These guys work hard to make sure you have an enjoyable, memorable and successful day on the river. I'm an immediate level and my spouse is a beginner fly fisherman (woman). The guides coached us on each outing, we both improved our casting and mending abilities substantially. We found the guides friendly and helpful. Highly recommended if you want to improve your fly fishing and enjoy Washington's only Blue Ribbon Trout stream, the Yakima River. If you are already an expert, you'll enjoy the access on the Cle Elum River.See more..
Great experience. One stop adventure from ability (convenience) to campsites, port a potty, firepit, picnic table... stone's throw from river, to tubes, kayaks, or raft that fits 6 plus guide. Amazing ride. Hollywood gorge, intimidating with huge rocks each side, was a blast! Even kid friendly, treasure hunt or sapphire surprise option...beautiful, fun way to spend a weekend.See more..
5.0Action Rafting Co(3 reviews) - Great trip, pleasant guides River Rafting & Tubing • Kayaking & Canoeing
Great trip, laid back guides, perfect for people looking to avoid a rowdy crowd. The trip is largely dependent on the river volume, but the guides are good at making the best of low volume and staying safe in high volume.See more..
My family and I spent a fantastic afternoon with Matt as our guide while we explored the Skykomish river on one of the scenic floats that they offer. This section of the river has beauty at every turn and rewards you with views that we all normally speed right by. Do yourself a favor, slow down and spend some time with this crew on the river, they know it better than most everyone else. Matt was patient and friendly with my kids, asking them to "help" paddle along the way. This is a great (and safe) way to introduce children to that river stoke.See more..
