This was only my second time river rafting and I am hooked! The first time was a few days earlier at the Rogue river in Oregon (full day class I, II). A friend and i initially signed up for a half day rafting, white salmon river class III, IV. My leader was Tyler and he was really good. Non stop... More

Have rafted many rivers and this one was great! The III & IV rapids are a thrill and quite constant. I did learn one thing though.....I will ask more questions about what "walking on some rocks" mean. This little jaunt beside the river is not for anyone with stiff knees or hips..... AND if you do have trouble bending knees... More

Several family members gathered for a pre wedding adventure. We had it! John was a wonderful guide and prepared us well. I will return next season and hope to do the whole trip. This time, since I was recuperating ( 6 mos out) from knee replacement, I was heavily encouraged not to participate in the inital part of the trip... More

This is a great trip for young and old. This is a professionally run trip with guides that have lots of experience. The White Salmon River trip goes through a canyon of sorts that is beautiful. The water is fast with many rapids and is best before July. While very experienced rafters/kayakers may find this trip something less than the... More

Very fun River! We had a blast rafting the White Salmon. My husband is a class IV white water boater and he even enjoyed it on a raft! Wet planet is a great outfitter. Knowledgable and friendly staff and excellent River guides. Good photography too.

We have rafted in Minnesota and Smokey Mountains. This was an entire different level. Non-stop action. guides were fantastic. We have an 11 year old and 14 year old -both very comfortable in water. We did have our 11 year old go over the side so they are serious when they give you your safety training. She was never in... More

My wife and I did the 1/2 day trip and it was an absolute blast! Our guide Prince did a great job in having our 6 person team practice directional paddling and body movements within the raft, all of which made for a much more enjoyable experience. We declined the optional cliff jumping experience but stayed aboard for the trip... More

So over a hundred people rated this as excellent. I don't know how many ways you can describe the excellence of this company. Equipment, safety, staff, food, beauty, river, rapids, and on and on and on. Every person thought their guide was the best. Our guide (Stein) had to be better than the others. Seriously, he made our trip from... More

Great. Amazing. This is a old lava tube. It was so unique. 20' rock walls on each side. A cliff jump and a bridge they won't say you can jump off. The whole trip was amazing so I'll focus on the bridge jump. 22'+ into a nice water hole. Plenty of air for a double and no limit on tires.... More
