Guided Deschutes
Whitewater Rafting Trips


New this year, we are offering the ‘Ultimate’ day float – approx. 35 river miles of beautiful scenery, whitewater, wildlife viewing and paddling the Class II, III and IV rapids! This trip includes rapids such as Whitehorse, Four Chutes, Buckskin Mary, and Boxcar. This trip takes about 7 hours, which will include a picnic lunch along the banks of the Deschutes.


This trip makes a great outing for any size group or family. You will float 12 miles of the finest white water the Deschutes has to offer. Our experienced guides will lead you through 12 thrilling rapids ranging from Class II to Class IV. Lunch is provided with every trip. You have your choice of either a delicious drift-in BBQ consisting of burgers, salads, fruit, etc. or a lighter deli lunch. Both have the "veggie" option.

We custom fit our day floats to your group. Our trips consist of more than whitewater rafting. We offer a short hike up White River Canyon to experience White River's natural water slide (check our photo gallery for pictures). We also include the options of body floating through Elevator Rapids, rope swing and slip 'n slide! Our guides know the fun things to do and are more than happy to let you experience all or part of what's available our there! We don't combine you with other groups, so it's up to you how much time you'd like to spend on the water. Our trips start at 10:00 am. Reservations are required.White River Waterslide Romp

We transport you from our shop to the put-in site at Harpham Flat, pick you up at the end of the trip at Sandy Beach and bring you back to our shop. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride!

We accept children ages 8 and up. We provide the children's life jackets as well as adult whitewater approved jackets. We have a minimum of 4 people required for a trip - there is no maximum! If the day turns out cooler than expected, we have wetsuits available to keep you comfortable.


The HALF DAY ADVENTURE is a "non-stop" run through the rapids.. Our experienced guides will start you out with thrilling Class II to IV rapids such as Wapinitia, Devil's Hole and Box Car. Next up you will encounter slower water with Class I and II rapids mixed in, which gives you time to catch your breath, relax and enjoy the beautiful Deschutes Canyon scenery. The final section offers the most exciting rapids on the Deschutes - Surf City, Oak Springs, White River and the Upper and Lower Elevators!

There are limited spaces available for this option. Be sure to make your reservations early.

This trip is offered on weekdays only. Trips begin at 10am or 2pm. A minimum of 4 people in your party is required.
