We booked this through TripAdvisor and it worked great. The outfit that it booked us with was called All-Star Rafting. I noticed when doing research that we were getting a great price - about $60 per person. When we got there I knew why - this was a pretty basic operation, but that's how I like it. No fancy storefront/gift... More

This trip was a really great! The scenery was amazing and our guide was very knowledgeable about the area. It was almost nonstop action for the entirety of the trip. Zollers seems like a great company, they value safety first and they provided everything we needed to go rafting, wet suits, jackets, helmets and special boots to wear in the... More

What a great time! Water was really cold on the day we went but we all had fun. Kids/teens (1st time) are already asking when we can go rafting again. Nick our guide was great. The only thing I didn't like was the amount of portaging we had to do on lower section. Probably wouldn't have signed up for both... More

We had no idea what to expect. The scenery alone was worth the trip. Category 5 Rapids. Very experienced guide that kept us on a safe path. We did both the upper and lower River so took about 4.5 hours. They outfit you with all the best clothing and wetsuits needed even though you get wet it's not a problem.... More

The White Salmon River is an adventure junkie's paradise with its Class 3,4, and 5 whitewater rapids and waterfalls. But it also offers beautiful intimacy both on the river and along its banks. Take a whitewater rafting trip with any of the great outfitters that run the river. They supply all you need, even the wetsuits for protection from the... More

This is a very fun river. Recommend for anybody who likes to white water. When they say your trip is 3/4 hrs with 2.5 hrs of white water they aren't pulling your leg. Great fun for the whole family.

My husband and I had never been white water rafting and really wanted to go! Our experience was more than I could have ever asked for! Mark our guide was so entertaining and great! Max was our secondary guide/ safety guy he was just as sweet and entertaining! We called on an off week and they still accommodated us. We... More

i am not sure what i was expecting given my previous white water rafting experiences...slow float down the river or "hair on fire" rapids...this was totally different from my other adventures. It started slowly enough but quickly picked up the pace so that every turn was a new experience. We had to jump off a cliff to get around a... More
