I'd wanted to go river rafting ever since I saw rafts forging their way down a river four years ago during a vacation in Colorado. When I decided that my 10-year-old son and I would go river rafting on the Wenatchee, I discovered many different companies operating at the area. I chose Osprey's Main Event mainly because of its location (met at their store in Leavenworth) and because of the timing of the trip, which started at 9 a.m. and ended at about 2:30 p.m., leaving us time in the afternoon to enjoy Leavenworth.
My son and I had an awesome, amazing time on the river rafting trip! It's one of the most memorable and fun things I've ever done while on vacation.
I'm not a great swimmer and I had never gone river rafting before so I was somewhat nervous to go. On top of that, my son also had never river rafted. Ryan was our guide and he was a lot of fun, but he also obviously knew what he was doing so I felt safe.
There were no unexpected costs. Osprey provided personal floation devices, water shoes, the rafts, paddles and the guides.
After floating down the river, through some really cool rapids, we landed at their own permanent picnic area, which is in an orchard just downriver from Cashmere. They had a barbecue with the usual barbecue fare (burgers, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, chips and salsa). It all tasted really good. Then they showed us a slide show of photos that they took during our trip. It was fun to see ourselves as we hit the waves.
I bought the CD that included all the photos. (It was a pricey $54, but worth it to me).
I highly recommend Osprey for river rafting in Washington.
