Washington Rafting Day Trips 

The scenic and snow-capped mountains that call Washington State home make for many different outdoor adventure options. It is the rafting choices that these mountains provide that offer memorable experiences for all ages.

The Nisqually River , near Olympia, is a historic waterway used by Native Americans and Pioneers. This is a scenic and family friendly river rafting trip with wildlife sightings which include eagles, hawks, beaver and deer.

The scenic Skagit River runs through North Cascades National Park and is another great family rafting experience.

The Skykomish River , located near near Gold Bar, is considered by many to be the ultimate whitewater river experience in Washington State.

The Tieton River , with rafting adventures primarily in the fall, takes runoff from the Rimrock Lake Dam (near White Pass) to produce an exciting trip.

Located near Castle Rock, the Toutle River offers bottomless holes in the shadow of our own active volcano, Mt. St. Helen.

Summer weather on the east side of the state offers a great experience while enjoying the Wenatchee River near Leavenworth. This is one of the most popular river runs in Washington State.

The White Salmon River features glacier water runoff and offers Class V "Husum Falls" as an option for those brave enough (not required to enjoy the entire experience of this whitewater roller coaster).
