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!

A great afternoon river rafting escape, only a few minutes away from downtown Spokane. Enjoyed the beautiful scenery and spotted some wildlife while floating down the Spokane River. Our guide, Jacob, was informative, enthusiastic, experienced and fun. Would definitely recommend this half day trip for locals, or if your visiting from out of town. A fantastic mini escape!

We spent the afternoon with Jacob on the river float adventure. We have the best time swimming in the river, having water fights, riding the bull and finding river treasure. We will definitely come back and see Jacob again the next time we are in Spokane. Thanks for the great family fun, Landon, Miranda and Taylor

My family booked a half-day trip down the Spokane River. We had a wonderful time with beautiful scenery and perfect weather. The guide invited us to try kayaks in addition to our raft. My son and I had a blast! I highly recommend ROW Adventures!

We signed up to do the river float down the Spokane River. I was a little nervous that this would be a good fit for my family, but fun was had by all. My husband and 14-year old kayaked down the river and had an amazing time while my 10-year old and 6- year old road in the boat with... More

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.

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
