Wenatchee Express Half-Day Trips

 Wenatchee Express             Wenatchee Express Private Raft


Rafting WEN halfday closeup

Perfect for ages 8+ and all abilities, families and groups that may be short on time. 

After a full orientation talk and paddle instruction, the excitement begins immediately as you launch directly into
Upper Gorilla
and Sharkstooth, filled with lots of fun waves.

A few rapids later is Rodeo Hole, where you’ll often see colorful kayakers showing off their moves - this is their favorite play spot on the Wenatchee River.

Soon you’ll be upon the unforgettable waves of Drunkards Drop, exciting walls of green and white water. The finale is the challenging sandstone ledges of Snowblind, and the massive waves of Grannys and the Suffacator. Many more thrills are along the way. 

Our trip ends at Riverside Park, where you’ll change back into your dry clothes, relive your river rafting trip and laugh about the highlights. There’s plenty of time for Frisbee, soccer, flying kites, and anything else you can think of in Cashmere's open and grassy Riverside Park.

"I booked the Wenatchee River half day trip because my dad was visiting from Texas, and I wanted to show him how great the Northwest was. I couldn’t have been happier! My dad and I are novice rafters but with the guide's help we caught on quickly. All in all it was a great experience I was able to share with my dad. Thank you so much!!!"
