The 1 day excursion was easy for my young kids (7,9) and the grandparents (79 and 75). The guides did most of the paddling. Customers only needed to paddle when hitting rapids, which was great for the old and young.
Somehow, our boat was the only one that managed to tip, spilling everyone but grandpa. It is also not great that there is no chance of getting back into the boat on your own. There are no ropes or handholds that would allow someone to pull themselves up.

My husband and I brought our 10 year old son and nearly 13 year old daughter with us on the 3-day tour and they both had an absolute blast and are asking if we can go again next summer :) Salmon Raft does an excellent job at organizing a memorable experience for their guests. Not only is everything well planned out from the moment you book your experience, but they were very informative any time I emailed them a question. The VERY BEST aspect of their company is that the owners (Chris and Lauren) have a true gift at hiring THE MOST AMAZING RAFT GUIDES! We were fortunate enough to have Brooke (Tour Leader), Preston and Tanner as the guides on our trip and they gave us the time of our lives! They're extremely knowledgeable and taught us countless facts about the river, our surroundings and the importance of preserving and protecting the environment. They were hilarious and had us laughing while we were learning. My husband and I found it funny that we could be their parents, but they were teaching us so much about life, following your passion and why doing what you love ends up not feeling like work at all. They took excellent care of us and blew us away with everything they provided for us along the river. Plus, the food was delicious and healthy!
PS-Because of Tanner we are working on perfecting our yodeling ;) Thanks Salmon Raft for giving us an unbelievable and unforgettable experience!! xoxo

Thank you for sharing your experience, Serena! It was so nice to meet you and your family. I'm so glad that you had a fun time with our guides and that you were able to take away some facts about the Salmon River. We hope you have a great rest of your summer and that you'll join us again for another trip down the rio! -Lauren

The guys at Salmon Raft were great! We couldn't believe everything we were provided on this trip for the price, it was an excellent value and something I would recommend to anyone that would be interested in a river trip regardless of the location. Salmon Raft provided gourmet meals each and every day and everyone in our 12 person group were pleasantly surprised at the quality and variety of meals. The scenery was spectacular with all kinds of wildlife the entire trip. The Salmon Raft guides were knowledgable, laid back and able to quickly help with fishing tackle issues for those that had not fished before.

August 2017 was my second trip with Salmon Raft and it keeps getting better and better.

We went on a 4-day ladies trip and we were spoiled rotten by the guides and their incredible attention to detail. They know everything from the type of birds flying over our rafts to making us incredible meals everyday.

Salmon Raft is a FANTASTIC company. If you're planning a river trip, there's absolutely no one else to choose but Salmon Raft. You won't be disappointed.
