Our leadership team decided to spend a day away from the office having some fun. This float trip was very exciting and fun. We did have a scary experience going down Oak Springs. Our guide "Little John" had prepared us and gave clear directions should we fall out of the raft going down a technical class 4 rapid. We did... More

Nic was our guide & he was very informative and instructional. I had no idea how physical and cold it would be. I'm very glad I listened to the advice in the email suggest fleece and workout clothes.

We got a groupon for a half day rafting excursion from this place. They don't seem overly prepared or organized but once you get on the river that all changes. The guides played back and forth. They were very knowledgeable about the river and the area. I expected a lot more paddling, but had a great experience anyway. We hit... More

We have rafted before in California and Wyoming, but this was the best. So much fun. Our guide, Dave, was the best! My wife and kids and I had an amazing time. I can't say enough about it. They also took some great photos, which were for sale afterwards. They ONLY do rafting. No coffee tours, or beer tours, or... More

I took my 14 year old niece & 12 and 9 year old nephews on their first white water rafting trip on the Deschutes River yesterday. We all had such a fun time! Our guide, Arianna, was funny & showed so much confidence and experience navigating us through the Rapids. We will definitely be returning in the future to try... More

Great all day rafting trip with lunch and excellent guides. They will tailor the trip to your needs making it as risky or calm as you want. Ride the bull on the front of the raft through some class 2 or 3s or drift through the calmer sections in the middle and enjoy the wildlife and views. Lunch was typical... More

Miles was our raft guide and he made the trip fun and also explained everything very well. All the other guides seemed great as well and all seem to know what they're doing. Parts of the river were slow but all the rapids are totally worth it!! Also ended up wth some awesome photos, so don't worry about capturing them... More

As we got to the place we got a bit nervous as we saw lines of people and three annoying barking dogs. They run the place pretty strict, allowing 2 people in office at a time and you can't check in until exactly a certain time, etc. From a service perspective it appears rude. Then the life vests and the... More

Been on a couple rafting trips, and one starts to recognize good guides. Had a good system for checking people in (esp.if you read...). Trustworthy guides. We happened to have one of the better ones who made our trip more exciting, as well as secure. He earned the tip we gave, and I hope others recognize the amazing subtlety of... More

We took our first trip on the Deschutes river today, We got a Groupon from a friend so we decided to try it out. Our experience was second to none. Our guide was Parker who did a great job. His focus on ensuring our safety was great but what I appreciated the most was his genuine interest in getting to... More
