Everyone knows the Spokane river cuts through downtown Spokane but most believe it ends at Spokane Falls...well that is where ROW Adventures begins! You'll cut through class III rapids named the Devil's Toenail and the world-famous Bowl & Pitcher! You can also choose a gentle float trip where you'll enjoy paddling through Riverside State Park and viewing our region's wildlife!

We took out two younger teenage daughters and had a blast, we had a great guide and felt safe. I personally would like to go next time when the river is higher and faster in the spring, but if you have kiddos going its safer midsummer and not as scary. You see more than I had expected as well so... More

Took the afternoon rafting trip with Kate "the great" as our guide. Some guests went in the raft while others kayaked. Easy rapids and a beautiful scenic trip down the Spokane River. Thank you for a great adventure with our 11 year old son.

We did the Spokane River Float in late July. Even though the water level was low, we wanted to beat the heat by being on the water. Our 2.5 hour float trip was a blast and was a fantastic way to see the natural side of the Spokane River. Our guide, Kate, was engaging, fun, and an efficient leader. We... More

I have never been kayaking and highly recommend it! The whole crew was welcoming and very knowledgable. They pointed out all the history and wildlife we came across. Will and Kate were just awesome! Thanks for great time ROW! Nick from Philly

Will was really funny and good with the kids. The river was low but kayaking and rafting were still fun. Was a great time!

First I should mention that the rafting is not in Spokane, it is about 2 hour east, our departure was in Superior. I originally had booked our rooms in Spokane but when I received their instructions and saw what was the meeting point changed them for Saint Regis, which was about 20 min from Superior. This was our first time... More

We had an absolutely fantastic day on the float tour. It was only our family and the guides (an accidental like a private tour!!!!). Will was so accommodating, cheerful and sooo funny. Thank you Row!

This was SO much fun, Will made this trip down the river so incredibly memorable. He was amazing at keeping us off of the rocks and also at making us all incredibly comfortable and was a great teacher!! We all wanted to go again!

Kate was our guide and she was very friendly and knowledgable. We had a group of 7 all together including 2 on kayaks. With the warm and dry weather the river definitely was slow moving. There were a couple of Rapids in we we all enjoyed. All together a great evening, Kate served up wine/ beer cheese and crackers and... More
