“Fantastic rafting trip!!!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Gary and HDRO provided us an amazing trip down the Deschutes River. We have been river rafting other places before, but this was our first trip on this river and with this outfitter, and we couldn't have been more happy with our experience. We will be back again and again. Can't say enough great things about our trip. I'm ready to go back tomorrow! Gary did a fantastic job and runs a first class operation. Thanks so much for providing us with the high point of our vacation!

“Experienced Guides”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I found this rafting company to be very well organized. They took great care to ensure everyone was properly outfitted and prepared for the trip. Our guide, Andy, truly was amazing! Skilled, fun, and full of great info about the area. We look forward to doing this again!

“Great time!!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

8 friends and I just returned home from a rafting trip guided by this company and every one of us had a fantastic time! 5 of us ladies went in a raft guided by Seo, and the 4 men went in a raft guided by Will. Both guides were professional, knowledgeable and just a ton of fun to be around! I am already missing the river, and will most definitely return to raft with this company (hopefully soon!!!).

“Great Summertime Adventure!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

My family and I have returned to HDRO twice (annually) since August 2009 and we've enjoyed a fine time. Expect to get drenched, especially if you sit in the bow (front) of the raft. You'll be provided with personal flotation devices and briefed on what to expect, how to respond, and what to do should you fall out of the raft. Respond promptly to the guide's instructions, and enjoy the ride! The scenery is photogenic, though I had only rare opportunities to reach for my camera. Protect your camera from water immersion with a housing or a sturdy plastic bag, because you'll be soaked. Photographers will be located at key points on the riverbank to take photos, which will be available to you after you return to HDRO. Unquestionably, an exciting experience for the family, teens and older.
