We went white water rafting with White Cloud Adventures. Making our reservation was super easy. They sent us an email confirming our reservation with tons of extra information on what to expect, where to meet, how to dress etc. They made it sooo easy for us. We arrived and their staff took each group and gave each member personal attention in getting suited up and explained everything to us - they put a big focus on safety, which we appreciated. We are experienced sailors and river canoers and these folks did a great job with not only the experienced folks but also those with no experience. Our guide was Garrett - and he is amazing!!!! We had another woman and two kids 13 & 15 years of age. Garrett engaged all of us in conversation and pointed out a bald eagle flying over us. WOW. He told us about how eagles nest. We saw some Merganzers and their babies and also two Ospreys. WOW. Garrett has an obvious love of the river, the woods and all the creatures and he shared that with us. This made the raft trip really amazing. White Cloud had a professional photographer on the shore at the big rapids and those photos are really amazing. Probably the best white water rafting photos we've ever gotten!!We highly recommend spending a day on the water with these guys!!

We had an exceptional day with Robert as our guide. We booked the full day fly fishing raft trip with 2 anglers and felt it was a great experience for a fair price. We are amateur fly fisherman, only having done it a couple of times, and never on a raft. Robert was a patient teacher and we learned a lot! Our raft and fishing equipment was top notch and the river scenery was beautiful even though the river is low. We caught small fish all day and missed out on a couple of larger cutthroats, and caught a beautiful rainbow trout at the end. Highly recommend this well run operation for any of their trips, we were very pleased.

These guys are pros! 2nd time w/ White Cloud and both times have been memorable, fun and safe! Braydon was a stud and took amazing care of us. We had my 80 year old Dad and my 8 year old son in our raft so the chance of joining the Salmon swim team was pretty high. My dad tried his best to fall out...twice and Brandon, with reflexes like a cat on steroids, grabbed him, kept him in the boat, kept us from hitting rocks and I think he battled a bear and filleted a salmon all before I could react and grab my Dad myself.
We've always felt safe, had a good time and shared laughs on the river. We'll definitely be back for more when the water is higher!

I have to say my review is very much colored by the fact that the website says the trip with lunch is from 10am to 5pm , but we were back in town by 2pm. I also thought we would have more time at lunch. Basically we ate, got back in the boat, and in 2 minutes we were getting out!

Honestly, I feel really ripped off of the experience I was expecting.

Also so many reviews talked about the incredible scenery. The whole trip was along the road…no Mountain Views and nothing you can’t see from your car. It wasn’t ugly but certainly nothing to write home about (I know this isn’t the rafting company’s fault but wanted to let fellow travelers out there know that)

And people talked about how great the food was. Food was ok. No cobbler like others said for desert—it was store-bought cookies.

it was quite a slow trip with a few little rapids

The guide was super sweet, but other than that, don’t bother. I would have rather rented a kayak on redfish lake for less than half the price, longer hours and better scenery

My family and I stopped in Stanley during out vacation and booked the 4 hour family friendly rafting trip. There was 10 of us with the oldest mid 60s and the youngest 7 years old. They split us into two groups and our guides were wonderful. Our boats competed with each other trying to splash the other or win in a race. We had a blast and we all highly recommend this company.

My husband and I went rafting with White Cloud Rafting Adventures and had the best time. Not only was the check in easy and friendly but the rafting was so fun and we loved having Robert as our guide. At one point my husband fell out of the raft on a rapid and the team worked seamlessly to get him back in the raft. I would also recommend WCRA 100% for family trips too.

A group of 4 of us joined White Cloud Rafting on an incredible Rafting trip in the middle of June. We did the high adventure trip and had a couple members who were very nervous. Sita our guide, and Margaret her trainee put us at ease so quickly into the trip. I never once felt unsafe and all members in our boat felt the same. It was such an incredible rafting trip. I personally have rafted rivers all throughout the west and this was by far my best experience. I highly recommend White Cloud and I'm so happy with our amazing guide and know when we return to Stanley that we will be choosing White Cloud Rafting again.

One week ago, my fiancé and I did a half day trip down the Salmon River. In our raft, we were accompanied by our guide, Sam, and one other engaged couple. Turns out, we will be getting married on the SAME DAY! We cannot stop talking about our experience. It was a blast and HIGHLY recommended. We learned about safety on the river, history of the river, and instantly connected with Sam and the other travelers. The professional photographer captures the experience for you and the smiles/laughter on our faces says it all! If you have any hesitations about the trip; just book it and see for yourself!

A wonderful experience for all skill levels and ages. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable of all portions of the river, and made sure that everyone had a safe and enjoyable ride. The management made sure that we got the best price available and were very flexible with scheduling. Couldn’t recommend this enough!

We only had a couple of days in Stanley and rafting was one of the things we really wanted to do. Will was our guide and he was great. He gave us a lot of great information as we were floating down the river. The water levels are pretty low right now due to the ongoing drought, but we still had a couple of nice rapids and enjoyed the more gentle float the rest of the way. I would recommend going on the first trip of the day as the sun gets pretty hot and intense by lunch time. We would definitely use White Cloud again.
