What fun we had rafting down the Hoh River that sunny afternoon! The emphasis on safety was much appreciated, as were Anna and Christian's knowledge and interesting conversation. Part of the river is quite peaceful, but there are a couple of fun small rapids to spice up the ride. We saw osprey and chicks in the nest, which was a... More

This is a very slow river and more of a float than rafting. Perfect for kids or those who really want to sit on a river. I fell asleep. That being said, I really liked our guide, but given how tame the water was, I was really surprised at the lengthy safety talk beforehand. No wetsuit needed.

Had a terrific time from start to finish. Anna was our guide along with Seth. Learned a lot about the area and even the children who had not rafted before were comfortable and confident with their instruction. We would highly recommend using Rainforest Paddlers.Thank You!

What an awesome experience for the family. Guides Anna and Pat were the best. Water was low as expected for this time of the year, but exactly what we were expecting!

Anna was so very amazing in helping plan our kayaking trip down the Quillayute, and then very accommodating in working with us when our backpacking trip plans changed on the trail. Anna took the time to talk about options prior to our trip, and then during our trip after canceled flights and trailhead mix-ups. She put in extra work to... More

Anna is a terrific guide and my wife, two daughters, and myself had a fabulous time. If you think you're viewing the best of the Hoh from the road, you're kidding yourself. The views on this river run are exclusive and stunning. The prices are very reasonable and Anna did a great job with VERY novice paddlers - she provided... More

Anna, the raft tour guide, was incredible - we absolutely loved this part of our trip. There were only two of us on the trip...if other people have also scheduled, then you'll be in the raft together, which would be fine. The advantage of the smaller group is that you feel like you get to have more of a conversation... More

Be patient with communications/contact ... this is a family business in a remote area and dont think immediate contact/detailed emails are routine ;). Anna was very pleasant and we were blessed with a glorious sunny day to ride the river in inflateable kayaks. Meet at store, drive short way to put in, then shuttled back in her truck after loading... More

Recently did an afternoon paddle on a raft down the Hoh River with Anna whom I believe may be the owner of this firm. She provided very comprehensive info about paddling/river safety before we even left the parking lot. They had booties for us to wear; we could have worn a wet suite and helmet if we so wished. Our... More
