Rated in The Top 10 Best Rivers

Your adventure begins in the majestic Leavenworth Valley, on the fun-filled Wenatchee River just east of Leavenworth Washington. 

Drunkards Drop on the Wenatchee River 

At this time of year, with the lower water levels of late summer, the Wenatchee River is perfect for families, groups, and those new to river rafting. You will be given a complete orientation talk and paddle practice, and then your excitement begins immediately as you launch directly into the fun filled waves of Indigestion. Next comes the challenges of Upper Gorilla and Sharkstooth, with lots of quick manuevers around this rocky section. There will also be plenty of time to relax, have water fights, and view the many active nests of Osprey along the river banks. Half way down we will take a break for swimming at Rodeo Hole, and soak up the sunshine.

Soon you’ll be upon the river wide shelf waves of Drunkards Drop, that will have everyone getting wet. Then starts of the finale of the dramatic sandstone ledges of Snowblind, that will test your paddling ability. It is the real highlight of the Wenatchee River. Finish off with the largest waves of the day at Grannys Rapids, followed by our delicious Top Sirloin BBQ back at the park!

The weather is HOT so be sure to bring your sunscreen, hats, and bottles of water.

Blue Sky Outfitters' Famous Top Sirloin Steak
The Best Food

Our trip ends at Riverside Park, where you’ll change back into your dry clothes, load up your plate at our Top Sirloin Steak BBQ -- with corn on the cob, potato salad, french bread, and lemonade. Relive your river rafting trip viewing photos from the day. There’s plenty of time and open space for Frisbee, soccer, flying kites, and anything else you can think of doing in an open, grassy park.

A Big Yellow Boat All to Yourself

Want to have just your group and your guide in your raft? You can book all the seats (2-6 people, plus your guide) on the boat for a private raft. Enjoy the freedom to tailor your trip to your own tastes -- take group pictures, paddle over to interesting wildlife, bow-ride through Drunkard's Drop, get one-on-one time with your guide -- and make your whitewater experience truly memorable.
