We took the "all day" Wood River guided kayaking trip down the Wood River. We had a wonderful time and the young guide was very knowledgable and competent. The Wood River is beautiful, especially at the headwaters start of the trip.
This float is not as advertised to us; a nature river float. Instead its an aggressive river paddle that demands some paddling skill and stamina. We were in constant danger of running aground. The river bed is full of very uneven gravel spread in somewhat unpredictable patterns, and a share of submerged log hazards. The current is swift. Forget nature watching except for short times of feeling safe enough to raise the binoculars. But enjoy the challenge of finessing the kayak through the hazards and you have a fun experience similar to "whitewater for advanced beginners".
The web site for Roe Outfitters is not your friend. These people are busy outdoor people and web sites are for office types. Call ahead and discuss your needs. If the office is empty, try again. They have the equipment and knowledgable staff to design a fun day of outdoor adventure. Wood River was also advertised as "all day" but we were done by 2:00. Okay, could not have paddle too much longer anyway.
