I have been rafting with River Recreation since 2005. Every year I take a group of friends and make some of my greatest memories. The staff are hilarious, well trained and safety conscious always. I would put my life in their hands and no one else’s every time. Wes is their most senior guide, with 26 years of experience. He inspires confidence, puts everyone at ease and makes sure that there is plenty of laughter and fun on the river. No need to pay for camping if you book with River Recreation, the camping is free at the best and most beautiful places on Washington’s 8 rivers for white water rafting!!

I highly recommend these guys. I have been on a few trips. My first trip was with Mark as my raft guide he's funny and I felt safe and his directions are always clear. I will choose him again. The rafts are legit and nice and the water is fun! I have never been disappointed. The old bus ride is fun too. Everyone is always having a great time.
They take safety seriously which I really appreciated. There was a guy on our trip who was really drunk and they had to ask him to not go with us because they had been drinking. They were quiet and really nice to the guy about it but firm. We cant have someone we cant count on they said.

we had an amazing trip on the Wenatchee River. The river was running very fast so we had lots of wet waves and bumps but none bad enough to worry us as we had 3 kids aged 8-15 in our boat. Thanks River Recreation for an awesome afternoon.

River Recreation is a well-run rafting outfit that puts safety first. They provide good quality safety training before getting in their rafts. Their guides are skilled and make river rafting fun and exciting. My son and I did our first white water raft trip and loved it. Our guide was friendly, fun, and knew how to run the rougher sections of the river. We had a fantastic experience. We plan to take a kayaking trip with them soon.

River Recreation is a solid rafting company with experienced guides. Their guides provided quality safety training before entering the water. We learned how to paddle and what to do if a boat flipped. Our guide was experienced, a good instructor, and made paddling rapids fun and exciting. We hit big rapids and made it through fine. My son and I were laughing with joy and amazement. We got hooked on whitewater rafting! We are planning a kayak trip later this year. The company and people are terrific.

I did the kayak trip down the Wenatchee, approx 14 miles. First time in a kayak on a river. I was the only kayaker - everyone else in rafts (4). It was scary but they talked me through it, and in the one big rapid I got tossed. They rescued me. Yeah. Definitely doing it again next year, just not going through that rapid - I’ll get into one of the rafts and pull the kayak, then get back in the kayak after the big rapid. The guides were all knowledgeable. It was 102 that day - felt great on the water.

2nd year in a row doing both the Methow river and the Wenatchee river during the high season. River Recreation has amazing guides that are personable and fun during the trip, provides all wet gear needed and an unforgettable experience. Will definitely book with them again!

We were there on LS deal which does have LOADs of fine print that leads to extra costs given the somewhat misleading way the coupon is written- though it is within the bounds of the verbage, just misleading.
In addition, as we have been on this river before, I had asked specific questions prior to buying LS deal and booking the trip.
I had specifically asked for and was given confirmation that splash jackets were available.. Apparently, when the rafters I booked arrived, they were told, rather rudely in fact, that we had not told anyone we wanted splash jackets. In fact, the individual (we believe his name was Wes) stated when asked, " I have one for myself but no one told me I had to bring extras" and walked away.
I also asked about the food as hot food when you are paying this much money and are cold from being on the river is a plus and was advised it was a steak and chicken meal. This was told me with a clear understanding I was booking for the Methow river. My group was then advised, while freezing sans splash jackets on rocks, that the Methow is considered a "remote location" and there would be no hot food.
Last, it took nearly 2 hours for the group to get on the river, with a lot of wasted time of buses being transported back and forth, forcing the group to just stand around for nearly an hour post safety talk waiting to get the float going. It just seems that this part of the process could be improved upon.
I can say that the feedback for the two guides was positive, friendly and very good at guiding them to hit the most rapids for this mostly experienced group- so kudos for them for the guiding only.
Bottom line, this was a year for us to try your company out as I typically have 12-20 rafters and we were very hopeful you would be the company that we count on and look forward to using year after year.
Unfortunately that will not be the case as guiding was good but not enough to make up for poor customer service.

My wife and I had a great time on the Nooksak this past weekend. Our guide was great and everyone in our boat seemed to have a great time. This was my wife's first time rafting, so I was a little concerned that it would be a little frightening for her. She loved it and wanted even more action. Lunch was served prior to going out and it was a chicken lunch with salad and a roll. We were not too hungry, so it was fine. I did not give this all 5, as there seemed to be a lot of waiting around. We got there at 1PM, lunch was still being cooked. I think we should have went through some of the safety and boating stuff, while we were eating, as we all were in our own groups during lunch, then we got gear, loaded on the bus for a ride to our launch location, then we had a lengthy talk about rafting and safety. It did take quite a while until we were on the water. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy the trip, there are some things that need to be worked on. All of the staff were very friendly and they definitely have safety in mind.

This is my second time rafting with River Recreation. I returned because I believe that they not only want me to enjoy myself, but, my safety is there top priority. Their guides are fun and full of jokes and stories. Just take half of what they tell you with a grain of salt! The Wenatchee didn't disappoint, and the rafting was awesome. After a delicious BBQ lunch, my group boarded a shuttle van and where driven to three local breweries to sample the local beer scene. Again, our guides where knowledgable and personable. It felt like hanging out with old friends. I would not hesitate to recommend River Recreation to my friends, and can't wait to come back and raft with them again. "Waves and Whisky", anyone?
