I am all three things: FUN, Safety, & Good Folks. And, the White Salmon River guided by the amazing folks from All Adventures Rafting was nothing but CRAZY FUN and a good feeling that being safe and smart was always a priority. The owners, Heather & Derek, and all the guides -since I have been back every year, I think I've gone down the river with all of them- are sincerely nice, down-to-earth people. They were wonderfully in tune with the abilities and skills of everyone in the boat at all times and make it look and feel like this wild river is easy-peezy. I would definitely recommend this company and this river to anyone who is down for adventure!

We took a trip with the office in August 2014. A large family was also rafting with us with kids of a variety of ages so we were all divided over 3 boats. I experienced the river with 2 different guides. The guides were awesome about explaining things, seeing where the current group was at and calling shots accordingly. We watched some other guides taking groups over Hussum Falls when it appeared the rafters could barely handle rafting in calming water...quite scary to watch...and I was very thankful that our guides made decisions based on the strength of the rowers. It was a great experience!

I've lived right next to the White Salmon for a couple years now, so I finally decided to raft it. All Adventures was awesome - they gave us our safety talk first, gear second, so we didn't have to sit and swelter in our wetsuits. They talked us through everything with a serious yet entertaining demonstration of safety rules. Then we hit the river! I was with just two friends, so they put us in a boat with two other people. Our guide, Sandy, was awesome - obviously an experienced rafter, but also knowledgeable about the river. All Adventures is as concerned about the health of the river as they are about the safety of the rafters - and that means a lot, as a local.
We had a total blast on the beautiful river, then Sandy let us decide if we wanted to do the falls. My two friends and I decided to give it a go, and Sandy was very thorough in what we needed to do. We practiced a bunch and got really pumped after watching the other boat in our group go over perfectly. Sadly, we ended up swimming - but the other guides pulled us right out!
I highly recommend rafting the White Salmon if you're in the area - it's such a gorgeous river - and I highly recommend going with the awesome folks at All Adventures. DO IT!

Did you know that less than 1/4 of 1% of all U.S rivers are protected by the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System? The White Salmon River is one of those elite and magical rivers. This protection means fewer people, more wildlife, more greenery, cleaner water and more fish. The White Salmon is a glorious river - one not to be missed on a visit to the Pacific Northwest.

All Adventures Rafting is an outstanding rafting company. Your day will begin with an organized and efficient check-in with proper gear fitting. Next, a guide will do a thorough training talk on whitewater rafting, emphasizing safety every step of the way. You will feel confident as you head out to the put-in spot.

Now, as you go down the short trail to the river, don't freak out when you hear the sounds of the first rapid. Once you get to the bottom of the trail, and are looking at the actual rapid, continue to tell yourself to remain calm. All is well. I say this because the first rapid is a doozy! Thankfully, you are rafting with an experienced guide with All Adventures Rafting. Yes, you will paddle. Yes, you will get wet. Yes, you will survive. In fact, at the end of this first immersion into the river, you will have a HUGE smile on your face. Your journey of fun and child-like joy has only just begun.

I have done many rafting trips in Colorado and in the Pacific Northwest. I can confidently say that All Adventures Rafting is the BEST rafting company I have every had the pleasure of working with. Their equipment is well-maintained, and fresh-smelling - a definite plus and one that is rarely found in the world of whitewater rafting. Their operations are highly-organized. Their guides are experienced, knowledgeable and kind.

Take your trip with All Adventures Rafting. I know you will be thrilled!

We made a day trip from Eastern Washington and had a wonderful time with All Adventures! The coordination of details before we left was terrific, and we were met with friendly smiles upon our arrival. We were impressed with the owners and guides and their attention to safety while still making everything fun. The river has virtually no floating/down time, so it was constant action with great commentary. All but our youngest kids took the optional waterfall, and all the rehearsing took out the alarm and just made it a fun and exciting part of the trip. They don't take undue risks, and we knew we were in good hands and well prepared for the best and worst case scenarios. Our whole family, ages 9 and up, had a wonderful time on a beautiful, exciting river, and we look forward to doing it again!
