White Water Rafting on the White Salmon River in Wash. is a must do! After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, I selected Wet Planet. So glad I did. We had a wonderful rafting trip, felt very safe(instructions before, we even got off & walked around a dangerous waterfall w/a sharp log sticking up in the middle) Professional from the time I booked on line, then called to change day. I asked the best time of day to raft & was told morning. Afternoon is fine, but colder b/c the sun goes behind the hills. They had All of the gear needed to stay warm & safe all inclusive of the price. Loved the whole experience! Next time we would go later in the summer b/c you put in 2 miles farther up the river. It looks like the waterfalls are maybe more extreme, but that would be okay too.

Went rafting with River Drifters in Husum. I have been rafting a number of times before but this was the best location for the combination of good scenery, nice weather (in the summer warm weather and cold water), and quality rafting. It has a good number of different good rapids with many challenging 3 - 4 rapids but nothing too intense. The Husum Falls was an awesome experience and was definitely worth it. The falls are only open when the water flow is low enough which is near mid summer. The rest of the year the rafts have to pull out before the falls and go back in downstream.

We rafted with Wet Planet and had a GREAT time!

We took the 1/2 day trip over the Memorial Day weekend (Thanks to all of our Men and Women in the Armed Forces...).

Wet Planet took care of everything: All we had to do was show up and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime!

I've lived in the Pacific Northwest too long to not have done this. This is NOT a passive ride. You MUST be willing to get wet, listen to your guide's instructions, and give it your all.

Great fun with white water on the White Salmon river. Class 3-4.. up to 6 (depending if they're running the water fall). Just need swim suits and personal items. The companies provide the wet suits. Beautiful basalt carved route. 1 hr 15 min from Portland which is not common to have such great rafting so near a great city. I've used Wet Planet and River Drifters, (although the former the most). Hint: take the splash guards they offer over the wet suit when the water is 40 degrees.
