Went on the morning trip on 5/20. The guide was awesome (sorry don't remember his name), but he is a larger dude with black hair. He was fun and informative and most importantly kept us safe! Because the river was running so fast we got to do a full day trip for the half day price and we completed the trip in 2.5 hours. The water was about 40 degrees. My son and I fell out of the raft into a rapid which was not the highlight of the day. The crew scooped us up quickly and safely. Overall an awesome day. Highly recommend this company.

I came here with 5 other friends after doing the Hood to Coast race. Only one of us had done a white water rafting trip before so we didn't know what to expect. Our guide Gary was fantastic. He had great stories, helped us brave the rapids, and even helped us go back up in to the rapids several times. Every one on the trip had an amazing time and it was one of our favorite things we did on the trip. Gary was a big part of that as he had great stories about the river and things that he has seen over the years. I cannot recommend this trip enough. Reasonably priced and Sequoia (another employee) took great pictures from the shore during our trip. We purchased over 40 photos for only $40 which I thought was quite a bargain. We would all do this again in a heartbeat.

We took the Lower Clackamas half day rafting trip with our children ages 11 and 6 who had no rafting experience. Pete with Blue Sky was very helpful before the trip in helping us to select an appropriate trip that the kids would enjoy. We also did not want to drive too far from Portland and we were happy that the starting point was only about 30 minutes from where we were staying. Our guide was Kurt and he was friendly, knowledgeable, clearly experienced as a guide and put us all at ease. The kids had a great time going through the several areas of small but fun rapids and swimming in the calm areas of the river. This trip was exactly what we wanted to introduce our kids to rafting in a way that would not scare them. If you have older children you might want to ask for a trip that is more thrilling, but this trip was the perfect combination of beautiful scenery and adventure for us. We would definitely book with this company again the next time we are in Portland.

If you have the opportunity to do this excursion, please take it.

My boyfriend and I came here and he had never done it before. We did the Upper Clackamas half-day rafting trip. It was simple enough to find the meeting location. We were greeted by three reps (2x guides and 1x photographer/admin) who walked us through the day. We got on the water pretty quickly and thank goodness we paid attention to our wonderful guide, Matt, because my boyfriend and I took a little trip into the water.

I felt 100% safe and Matt gave us opportunities to get more splashes and more excitement. He was knowledgeable about the river and very communicative about any potentials for danger.

Would highly recommend to groups looking for a good time!

Great day! We did the full day trip with lunch so started on the upper Clackamas and finished on the lower section. Our guide Ryan was awesome and friendly and great at reading the river. We had a good mix of calm stretches and whitewater, Ryan was professional throughout, and grilled lunch was great. We would definitely do this trip again.

We started off our Sisters Trip to Portland with an afternoon half day whitewater trip from Blue Sky. Ryan was our guide and he was THE BEST!! We had such a blast, never once felt scared, and laughed so hard our stomachs hurt the next day. This was a great mix of adventure, excitement, relaxation, and fun all in a few short hours. Ryan made sure we all got turns to try something new, learn a little about the river, and about each other while on our rafting adventure. I had rafted once before in Colorado about 7 years ago and can't tell you anything about that trip (it was that boring). I know I will be remembering this trip for many years to come. It was that good!! Thanks for the amazing memories. Note: You will be sore the next day from much more than laughing so build that into your vacation schedule. It is totally worth it though.

Had an excellent half day trip on the Clackamas river with Blue sky. The river had an good flow which made the rapids fun. As a family trip it was very enjoyable. The guide was knowledgable and put some of my family who had never done this before at ease. Blue Sky provided wetsuits and warm clothing, a must for April.

We had a fun family experience with wonderful staff. Our guide, Kamal, did a fantastic job. Rode on the front of the raft like a bull ride. My daughter got to jump off the rocks into the river. All this on top of fun rapids and another team member taking group pictures throughout.
