Sara D. - May 6, 2016

“Had a great time today with our guides Chris & Dan on the Wenatchee! Very informative about the river & wildlife, and they were very accommodating and inclusive to our kids (ages 8 & 10) who were along on the ride. They even provided some delicious snacks during an island exploring break! Highly recommended!!!!”


Molly H. - January 1, 2016


"This place is awesome, they provide snacks and they're knowledgeable about the local areas! I would recommend this to anyone!"



David H. - September 12, 2015

"This was a birthday present from my wife. Booking was easy and quick. Outstanding trip; guides were phenomenal - especially Nick. I flew out of the raft twice; it was awesome. The Tieton river is amazingly fast coming from the dam. Highly recommend especially this time of year (September) as the weather is awesome. Great steak dinner back at the camp. A+"



Sandi J. - August 13, 2015

"Went tubing. Cost was VERY reasonable (just over $20) and the people were great. They took us up the road a couple miles and let us go. The tubes are nice and sturdy...fairly easy to get into and out of. We took our time floating and took a couple breaks. We spent a few hours out on the river. They say if you stay with the current the whole time, it takes about 2 hours...but were we in no rush. We had a great time. I highly recommend these outfitters."


John S. - August 3, 2015

"This was the second time my girlfriend and I used Blue Sky outfitters to go river tubing. This time we selected to go twice in one day. They are super nice and helpful and even gave us a discount for going on the ride twice in a day. Their store front lady is awesome and super friendly. We were running late, so she called to check on us and moved our reserved time. The husband and wife team were also super helpful and friendly."


Madeline M. - July 15, 2015

"Amazingly fun. This was my first time whitewater rafting. The guide, Henry, was knowledgeable, relatable, and fun. For me, it made the trip that much more amazing. The entire time we were going down the river, we were laughing and smiling. Every single potential concern was covered, we felt safe and informed, AND we got to go over a waterfall! The BBQ at the end was superb as well! I'm wonderfully tired and sore from this adventure. Would go again and recommend in a heartbeat.

Kudos, once again, to our guide, Henry. He was very laid-back, but always knew was what was going on and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He made the trip that much more enjoyable. Thank you so much! Very memorable birthday trip!"

White Salmon River

"The rafting was awesome! Staff was great, guides were super relatable and laid back while being informative and food was on the spot. Would recommend in a heartbeat."


Austin P. - June 29, 2015

"My friend who has gone rafting once before, and myself who had never gone rafting previously, went for the half day Wenatchee River Express trip. Overall, the experience was very positive although not as intense as I had expected.

The process from start to finish was extremely simple and enjoyable. We submitted an inquiry form online and were called back within minutes with information about our trip.  When we arrived, we were greeted be friendly guides who got us signed in, got us our river boots, life jacket and paddles. It was really hot that day, so they didn't offer us wet suits as the water was very refreshing. They took us on a 10 minute bus ride over to the entry location where they gave us a quick safety overview and got us situated in our boats. The water level was lower and slower than usual, which meant the Rapids weren't as intense as we were expecting. Afterwards there was a cookout where the guides made us steak and corn, and we got to interact more with the people in our boats.

Our tour guide John was one of a kind. Extremely friendly and personable. He told us all about the history of the river and the Rapids. Although the the Rapids weren't as fun as we'd hoped, John made up for it. He had us going for a while that one of the houses on the river was that of Charlie Sheen, and told us after that he had us all going. Overall an amazing tour guide who was extremely friendly and made the trip worth the price.

I would recommend this trip to anybody who wants to go rafting for the first time as it was less intense but gave you a really good idea of what to expect on higher class Rapids. The group we road with were all hilarious and when combined with tour guide John, made the trip the perfect first rafting trip


Hannah R. - May 29, 2015

My boyfriend and I took a day long trip with Blue Sky. The management was great, as were the rafting guides. We met at the park where they geared us up with quality wetsuits, life jackets, and booties. Our guides were very knowledgable and made sure we enjoyed ourselves.

After 4 hours of fun on the water we had a great dinner, my boyfriend had steak and I had an awesome chipotle garden burger. We have rafted with other companies in the past and Blue Sky was by far the best. I definitely recommend them.


Methow River - October 5, 2014

Thank you so much for the FUN day my boyfriend and I spent on the Methow River over Memorial Day. Even though it was cloudy-ish and cool day, we LOVED our river time. Rich the head guide was also our boat guide, and he is a lot of fun, while being quite knowledgeable and in command.

It is really fun to have lunch afterwards and recount the day. Even though the rafting went quickly because the water was so high, that's what we liked - those endless wave trains.

Thanks for putting me back on the Mehow for the first time in 24 years, and Ken in a paddle raft for the first time ever. It was a fabulous time.


First white water trip - September 18, 2014

What a great trip. The Tieton River was at it's very best. Our guide, Hal, helped us have a safe and exciting float. My wife and I are both in our seventies and should have done this earlier. What a great experience.


Great Rafting! - August 15, 2014

We went on a Tuesday in July which was great because it was 95 degrees and there was hardly anyone on the river. Our Guide Kira was fantastic and knowledgeable and about the area which made the trip fun. We would definitely return because of the friendiness and professionalism we received!


Great Time for the Family - July 29, 2014

I did the half day trip with my mother in-law two years ago and remembered how great Blue Sky was. My daughters wanted to try a rafting trip. I was a little apprehensive bringing my children, but Brandon made it a great experience! The girls were scared before we left, but after our half-day trip, they want to do a lot more rafting! They even fell out of the boat but loved the experience. Than you for the thrill and expertise of the crew. We will be back next year!


Randy - July 2013

 

"This was a wonderful rafting experience. It felt thrilling, yet reasonably safe and intimate. Three rafts, three guides, about 12 people. It was about 10 miles on the White Salmon River, all pretty active with lots of class 2, 3 and 4 rapids...The trip really was tremendous once you got on the river, and the guides tried hard to make the whole experience really enjoyable. Definitely a WET one ... we were soaked several times, but a fabulous experience, and the guides capped the afternoon off with a nice grilled dinner. This is well worth doing, and although I'm not a thrill seeker (bungee jumping is not on my bucket list), I really felt safe throughout the experience. Seek this out and enjoy!"

Tim S. - July 2013

"We did the 3 1/2 hour trip from north of Leavenworth. It was a perfect day,warm, high water running fast. Hal was our guide. What a great guy. Really knowledgable and fun. We had a full raft and a great float. Scenery was fabulous, a couple off class 3 rapids were run, we intentionally took a couple of dips in the very cool river. When it was done we had a nice barbecue steak dinner. Really a nice day. Very pretty ride up from Cle Elum, we got to look around Leavenworth(beautiful Bavarian style town) and Cashmere, where we met up was a very nice town. I felt like I got full value and then some. Thanks Hal, great job. If you want to raft, these are the folks to go with. "


Laura H. - June 2013

 

"We reserved two rafts for our 2013 family reunion. Chris was the guide on our raft--who was so much fun!! We not only went through some awesome rapids, and everyone got wet :) we also had ..with our guides help..strategies to sneak up on the other raft, and have some water fighting competition!! Add this adventure to your list of awesome things to do in the Wenatchee area!! Its a blast!"


Gene - August 2012

"These guys are great.  Well organized and the guides are all pros.  I took my boys ages 9 and 10 and they said it was the best event of the summer.  My 9yo was apprehensive to go and a bit timid but Seth our guide made him feel secure and confident.  He ended up at the head of the boat facing the rapids head on by the end of the trip.  Thank you, Seth!"


Julie - July 2012

"The other rafting company we had scheduled our trip with cancelled on Wednesday and Blue Sky was able to get us on the Saturday A.M. Wenatchee River rafting trip. It was the first rafting trip for my youngest grandson and my husband. The river was running high with big waves and was exciting. Our guide, Ray, was perfect and was very aware of his youngest cargo (my grandson). I could not have asked for a better day!"


Lucy - June 2012

"For Father's day, my Husband and I went down the Wenatchee River with these guys and I am telling you, they are FIRST CLASS. We were newbees at this but another couple on our boat were not and they were even impressed. Especially about how thorough the guides were about the instructions before launching. Kira was our guide and this was her 7th season with them and she was AWESOME, INFORMED and FUN! The steak dinner they provided afterward was, while not gourmet, was amazingly good and was quickly prepared. We would do another trip with Blue Sky Outfitters again in a heart beat!"


Angela - May 2012

"I loved, loved, loved my experience with Blue Sky. Not only was the adventure a spendor, but Quil & Scott were so much fun. The barbeque was a nice touch (and very delicious + satisfying), my compliments to the chef!

They were professional and very entertaing! Everything that we could possibly think of were provided for us. From the suit, splash jacket, PFD, boots, and the comfort of a confident staff... AND A BARBEQUE! Totally worth the Drive from Spokane. As soon as we got out of the water, we were ready to go at it again.

Although it is not required, plan on bringing gratuity because these guys really deserve it!"


Vivian V. - June 2011

 

"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Whitewater and Wine Tour on the Wenatchee River last week. The whole experience was exhilarating from start to finish! I was very nervous about rafting, but the precise instructions, experience, level of professionalism, and love of the sport of our guides, Lester, Brian, and Dave, helped to ease my fears and enrich our experience. They went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience possible. And what a meal! The top sirloin steak barbecue was awesome! Thank you so much for the wonderful wine tour too! The limousine and wineries were spectacular and our driver was fantastic. We will definitely be taking another trip in the future, and I have a friend who wants to do the Whitewater and Wine Tour as part of her bachelorette party. Thank you so much, we had a great time!"

Eileen and Peter - September 2011


"If you choose one rafting business to raft the Mighty Tieton river during the month of September choose Blue Sky Outfitters; they were excellent value,organized, helpful, informative, relaxed, competent, skilled, and just fun to hang out with. Our guide, a wonderful young man named Jeremy, MADE the trip for us; he possessed a blend of skilled river knowledge, general knowledge bits about the area, as well as his sheer good manners in the face of others who had no wish to share the river with us (even hostilely oaring water at our guide! jeez!). It was an awesome ride, a medium level of rapids guarantees a good time even with the risks involved with rafting --- our boat bonded with each other due to Jeremy's good humor and abilities as a guide. Arriving home to a steak and sweet corn dinner rocked it. We are VERY happy and satisfied customers and will indeed return with friends!
