The Columbia Gorge's Most Spectacular River  


Your adventure jump-starts right in the middle of the most challenging rapid, Top Drop. Unique, pool-and-drop rapids await, such as Corkscrew, Waterspout, and Stair Step Falls. The high basalt cliffs rise and fall along the banks, teeming with tiny wildflowers, lady-finger ferns, and lush vegetation. With the rocks and water so close, you will have a very intimate feeling towards this amazingly beautiful river just across the Columbia River gorge from Oregon.

14 foot Husum Falls, Totally Optional!

The White Salmon is federally protected as a "Wild & Scenic River", and we are one of the select companies permitted by the Forest Service to run the tallest commercially raftable waterfall in the nation, 14-foot Class 5 Husum Falls! Right before the waterfall, we will stop at a beach and teach everyone what to do to stay in the boat. You'll have the option of getting out and walking around the falls. This is one of the highlights of our trip, where a photographer will be taking pictures of your plunge. (Husum Falls is Runnable Only At Specific Water Levels). Call us for details. Then finish off with the fun-filled Class 3 rapids of the lower half.

The White Salmon rafting trip is recommended for paddlers who are in relatively good shape and ready to take on the challenge of a technical Class 4 river. 

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 Rattlesnake, get one-on-one time with your guide -- and make your whitewater experience truly memorable.

The Columbia Gorge has long been hailed as the kiteboarding and windsurfing mecca of the Northwest, because of its constant easterly wind and westerly river current. Don't let that overshadow the rest! The surrounding mountains are replete with world-class wine, wildflowers, and waterfalls too.
