Why choose us for your Wenatchee River Trip?

There’s a lot of difference between the outfitters offering raft trips on the Wenatchee River and rafting with Blue Sky Outfitters. We pride ourselves with providing the best-of-the-best when it comes to our Wenatchee trips. Here are just a few of the reasons:

Great Guides

Our guides know and love the Wenatchee River above all others - they will show you a great time! We've been showing customers a fantastic time on one of the best rivers in the state for over 34 years.

Better Food – Both Before and After the Trip!

We know you’re going to work up an appetite out there on the river, so we start you off with a light snack before the trip and have a full spread BBQ waiting for you when you come off the river! Our BBQ is with out a doubt the best on the river – no Costco burgers here! Choice Top Sirloin Steak (and Garden Burgers for the vegetarians), corn on the cob, potato salad, French bread, and ice cold lemonade – this is what summer eatin’s all about!

Top Quality Wetsuits and Rafts

High-quality, well-maintained equipment assures your comfort. We keep high standards for our equipment!

Longer Trips

On the full Wenachee River Day Trip, we raft up to 17 miles, and our Half-Day Express Trips are 10 miles long - 30% longer trip than many of the other outfitter’s trips. We like to take our time and make sure you get the full experience.

Great Organization

The Wenatchee River is our home base. All our vehicles and equipment are based here, allowing for easier shuttles and great organization for small or large groups alike.

Wenatchee River ValleyOur Full Wenatchee River Day Trips Start in the Beautiful Leavenworth Valley

We put the rafts in the river and begin your trip in the Leavenworth valley with mountains all around. It’s a semi-private location, quiet and peaceful, and deer and bald eagles are frequently seen.

Half-Day Express Trips start at Dryden's dam.

We Really Play A Lot!

We feel your trip is about experiencing the river, not just taking you from Point A to Point B. You’ll see other outfitters pass us by while we take the time to play with water fights, boat games like “Rodeo”, “Wheelies”, and “Tube Racing”, swimming in the flat-water sections. And we like to have you experience the full “personality” of the river – taking time to visit the cave, nose up to the waterfall, play with eddies, and hit the “big stuff”.

Your Comfort is Important to Us

On the full Wenatchee River Day Trips, we take a break mid trip as we portage around the dam. You’ll get a chance to stretch your legs and make use of the “sani-cans” before we continue to tackle the biggest rapids of the day!

We Start and End in Cashmere Riverside Park

We end our trip where we initially met you so your car will be waiting for you at the end of the day, along with our full BBQ spread. Riverside Park offers full indoor changing rooms and bathrooms at the Cashmere Riverside Center, four acres of mowed grass to play on, volleyball, Frisbee, secure parking, and close proximity to stores.

Wetsuits and Neoprene Booties Are Included

There’s no additional charge for wetsuits or neoprene booties – they’re provided as part of every trip we offer.

No Need to Reserve Your Wetsuit

Just consult our size chart after you arrive and let us know what size you need. We keep on-hand unisex sizes from Extra Small to XXX King Long. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call.

Full-Time Office Staff

Our office is staffed with friendly, knowledgeable personnel seven days a week. That means you can always give us a call, toll-free, for last-minute directions, questions, or to see if there’s open spaces left on a trip.
