Everyone knows the Spokane river cuts through downtown Spokane but most believe it ends at Spokane Falls...well that is where ROW Adventures begins! You'll cut through class III rapids named the Devil's Toenail and the world-famous Bowl & Pitcher! You can also choose a gentle float trip where you'll enjoy paddling through Riverside State Park and viewing our region's wildlife!

I called this establishment to find out is they could help me with finding some replacement oars for my whitewater raft. They were very helpful and referred me to the appropriate people.

Jacob was a fantastic guide and even sent pictures. We had a blast and would definitely plan another trip. The local stories were wonderful during the serene part of our trip.

Very well organized. We were in the water rafting within an hour of meeting at ROW. Our guide, Erica, was fun, helpful, and knowledgeable. We made a few stops along the way to swim and cool off in the Spokane River. They had beverages for us at the end of the trip. I would go again for a casual, fun... More

An excellent whitewater experience for first timers guided by fantastic river guides who entertain, educate and safely insure you a good float on the Spokane River. Our June 21st trip started at 2:00 pm with an information meeting filled with tips and tricks for having a fun day. The water flow was 2700 cu ft per second or just about... More

My husband and I enjoyed a river raft trip down the Spokane River. It was our second experience with ROW and it was excellent! First, a meet and greet at their Adventure Center, then Red Bus to the drop off point. Lots of tips and instruction by a very friendly kick in the pants guide, Maddie, who obviously loves life...

We took out two younger teenage daughters and had a blast, we had a great guide and felt safe. I personally would like to go next time when the river is higher and faster in the spring, but if you have kiddos going its safer midsummer and not as scary. You see more than I had expected as well so... More

Took the afternoon rafting trip with Kate "the great" as our guide. Some guests went in the raft while others kayaked. Easy rapids and a beautiful scenic trip down the Spokane River. Thank you for a great adventure with our 11 year old son.

We did the Spokane River Float in late July. Even though the water level was low, we wanted to beat the heat by being on the water. Our 2.5 hour float trip was a blast and was a fantastic way to see the natural side of the Spokane River. Our guide, Kate, was engaging, fun, and an efficient leader. We... More

I have never been kayaking and highly recommend it! The whole crew was welcoming and very knowledgable. They pointed out all the history and wildlife we came across. Will and Kate were just awesome! Thanks for great time ROW! Nick from Philly
