This was our first ever white water rafting experience. Our guides' name was Anthony and he made sure that we got the most out of our trip down the Deschutes river. Anthony made sure that we understood all the rules of the river. During our trip we never felt in danger and this made for a great time. The day... More

This is a fabulously run company - so well organized with such excellent staff. I was nervous about taking my kids whitewater rafting for safety issues, but they reassured me that the trip was ideal for kids and very safe..................and it was all that and more. The guides were kind, smart, and well experienced - thank you Will for the... More

My family of 4 (with 2 teenage girls) took a full day rafting trip on the Deschutes river. From the moment we met our guides Claire and Allison in Maupin, they were very professional and personable. They only had 8 people booked that day (us and another group of 4), and I was happy to see that there were 2... More

My husband and I had an awesome time rafting down the McKenzie River. Our guide, Will, was super professional, knowledgable, and friendly -- he put everyone at ease from the beginning and explained everything beforehand so we knew exactly what to expect since no one in our group had done any rafting before. The river itself was a serene experience... More

This was our first time whitewater rafting and Ouzel Outfitters made it a fabulous experience! We signed up for the 1 Day Deschutes River trip and Donna, Will and David were our guides for the day. They were extremely knowledgeable of the river and the surrounding wildlife. The guides were friendly, made sure we were always safe and ensured that... More

We went on the 1-day Deschutes trip and had a great time. Since we had our kids with us, safety was important to us. The guides made us feel very safe while having a blast. We had guided ourselves down a river before but it was not nearly as fun. Our guides Shelby and A.J. knew the best places to... More

My husband and I booked this trip the DAY BEFORE we were to go (I don't recommend that!) mostly because we hemmed and hawed about going. (Two 50-somethings out on raft??) We called one company (which shall remain nameless) and the young lady admonished us for trying to book last minute ("people book these trips weeks in advance!") and couldn't... More

Great outfitting company! They took awesome care of us! I would highly recommend this company! For many of us on the trip it was our first time on the river, but Ouzel made it a wonderful experience! The inflatable kayaking is a must do experience. ~ Ducky

We took the full day adventure on the lower Deschutes. We booked it just the day before and were able to join the trip. We got a good feeling from the get go, when Brian called us back to make our reservation. He was very kind and helpful. Our guide on the river was Brant. I have so many good... More
