We had a great experience with Olympic Raft and kayak. We went on a morning rafting trip on the Elwha River. Our guild, Emily, was very knowledgeable about the area and made the trip a lot of fun. The owner, Morgan, really tries to make sure everyone enjoys the trip and that everyone is satisfied. If you are going with... More

This was a great raft trip right in the Olympic National Park. My experience with booking the trip was great. Morgan was so informative and helpful.

We took the Elwa raft trip, which provides a nice but calm introduction to rafting. What makes the Elwa exciting is that the trip is between two dams, one in the process of being removed and the other one is already down, so you can see the river in the process of rejuvenating itself. (If you've seen the new movie... More

Our family with 3 teen boys took the Elwha River trip. We all had a blast. For me, it was the perfect mix of calm(ish) water and rapids. The boys and hubs had fun, but could've used a bit more adventure. But it was a great introduction to rafting and we will definitely do it again! Our guides were very... More

My wife and I went with a group for a rafting trip down the Elwha River. Everyone in the group had a great time. We often hike along the Elwha, but this was a totally different view and experience. The river wends through the beauty of the Olympic Mountains and rain forest. The river is still settling down after the... More

Ten of us (ages 9 to 59) just rafted down the Elwha River with Jordan and Brogan. Awesome experience! Felt totally safe -- with a thrill or two thrown in for excitement. Nature walk midway through the trip educated us all on the changes resulting from the dams being removed. Owner Morgan made it easy for all of us. 100%... More
