My first experience river rafting was perfect. Ouzel gave me clear written instructions before my full day raft trip down the Mackenzie River. I felt very prepared. Shuttle was exactly on time. My guide Cameron was awesome. It was clear that he enjoys what he does and likes people. His knowledge of the river, trees and wildlife enhanced the experience.... More

We arranged a trip for 4th of July weekend at the last minute, for a large group. Brian at Ouzel worked very hard to put the trip together including the logistics from Sisters. We had two great guides, including Alondra (she was the guide in my boat) who provided lots of local history in addition to information about the river.... More

Our family of four, including one teen and one tween, had a fantastic day on the Deschutes. Ouzel was fantastic from beginning to end with their contact and professionalism and fun. We did the full day on the Deschutes and met our guides in Maupin. Hot weather made the cool river feel great and our side trips to the White... More

We had a great day on our all-day Dechutes rafting trip today. This is a perfect trip for families with school -aged kids who want to get wet, ride some class II and III rapids, and enjoy a beautiful day on the river. Our guide Sam was great with our kids and taught us fun water games like Wheel of... More

Some friends of ours suggested we join them on a 4 day, 3 night Rogue River trip with Ouzel Outfitters. We usually go for cheaper, unguided, types of vacations but we really enjoyed this one. It was worth the extra money to get to experience something that we don't have the equipment or expertise to do on our own. Our... More

This company was very accomodating. We made last minute reservations and they were able to meet all our needs. Our guide was knowledgeable and made us feel safe while providing maximum excitement. Our group had a wide range of abilities and the guide had us practice taught us quickly and efficiently how to follow her directions. It was a memorable... More

I had so much fun with Ouzel that I did 3 trips. Two on the Deschutes and a day trip on the McKenzie. All the guides were super knowledgable, not just about the rapids, but the area and its indigenous elements. An owl flew into camp. It was dark. But our guide, Tim (a native of the area) was able...

I absolutely have no hesitation in recommending a trip with Ouzel. Did a 3 day Rogue River trip. One night camping and one night in Paradise lodge. This was my first river rafting trip. I was nervous about class 3-4 rapids. I am not a big fan of camping. I loved this trip! Our guides, Bobby, Anthony and Cameron were... More
