A great, short trip, if a half-day is what you are looking for. Nice rapids. Next year an all day on the Umapqua. Orange Torpedo is very organized and professional; you won't be disappointed.

My boyfriend and I had a great day with Brian and Spencer our guides. It was thrilling beyond belief, gorgeous, and we felt completely well taken care of and entirely safe. I would recommend this adventure to anyone.

This was an exciting half day rafting trip on the Rogue River to cap off our NW vacation. Brian, our guide, grew up in the area, and was able to tell us all kinds of interesting things along the river. We could tell that he knew the river really well, and he was expert at guiding us through the rapids.... More

Just finished up a fantastic 2-day river rafting trip down the North Umpqua. Our two river guides (Trevor and Brian) were the consummate hosts and guides. They knew the river intimately. Trevor did a great job guiding my son and I down the rapids in our cool Orange inflatable kayaks. And Brian did an incredible job entertaining 4 young kids... More

We did the three day rogue as a family, three out of four had never paddled before. The guides were fantastic (thanks Tim, Grant, Robbie), we felt safe, educated and entertained. The overnight lodges were also awesome, and everyone worked very hard to ensure we had a great trip. I can't think of anything we would have changed. Go!

My husband and I had never been rafting before, but it was kind of a bucket list experience we wanted to try. We didn't have a lot of extra time in our vacation, so we opted for a 1/2 day Nugget Falls trip with Orange Torpedo. From booking the trip to taking the trip was a really easy and pleasant... More

Orange Torpedo tries to hire teachers mainly, which is great compared to some o the other river guides I've seen. The guides were very easy to talk to and gave great instructions. The equipment was all in good condition, making for a great day on the river. Email communication for the booking and preparation were great as well. Overall a... More

It's great to hear you enjoyed your day on the North Umpqua. Such a beautiful river. As you mentioned, we have made it a policy for over 45 years to try and hire teachers as our guides for the very benefits you mentioned. It's how we have been able to maintain such a consistent guiding staff for almost 46 years.... More

Ten women friends and myself took the 4-day hiking trip along the Rogue River The scenery along the river was beautiful. The river path was easy to follow. The guides made sure our meals along the river were delicious and also carefully guided us along the way. The lodges were comfortable and very accomodating an overall outstandingly beautiful experience

It was great to have your group join us on the Wild and Scenic Rogue River Trail. It's hard to believe it's our "job" to share such an incredible place with fun groups like yours. I hope this becomes a regular thing and we see you again next year. More

We just pulled out of the Orange Torpedo (OT) parking lot and this review is swirling in my head, like the waters of the Rogue River. Brian, our guide, was awesome during our entire half day Rogue River trip. We chose to meet at the OT office in Merlin. Very organized and efficient check in- we sent our releases electronically...

Thank you for the detailed review. Surfing in a raft is such a hard thing to explain to people and yet it's certainly one of the highlights of the Nugget Falls 1/2 day trips. It really is just something one must experience to understand. It's great to hear Brian was able to help you find other things to enjoy in... More
