    What to Expect
    The full-day trip meets at 9:45am in the morning and we finish the trip around 3:30-4:00pm. This very full day takes you over many exhilarating rapids, gives you a great opportunity to relax and soak up some sun and plenty chances to jump in the river for a refreshing swim! In the morning we travel through some very exciting rapids and drift through some placid pools. There is plenty of time for swimming, splashing the other boats or just sitting back and taking it all in! We raft for a few hours in the morning and then we stop for a riverside barbecue lunch! After feasting on fresh fruits, vegetables, cookies, salads and some tasty BBQ, we sit back and soak in the days events for a while. At the lunch’s end, we then continue on with our adventure.

    The afternoon portion of the trip presents us with the most whitewater of the day! With big and famous rapids like Surf City, Oak Springs, White River, Roller Coaster, The Elevators, Sandy’s Hole and several others, you will be sure to get your fix. We stop several times to surf the waves and we even stop to swim through a rapid (if you are up for it)! At the end of the trip, we transport you back to the meeting site. From there our guides will escort you up to the photo shop to check out some of the days action (if you desire). Pictures from your trip are available there (not included in the trip price) if you would like some memorabilia to show off when you get home!

    Had a great half day in the Deschutes with our guide Devan. Very clean and good equipment. Just the right length of trip. Devan mixed safety, challenges and fun in a tremendous mix. Can’t wait to go back.

    We had a great time. our family of four went out with Fergus as our guide. He was very funny and very attentive. We have two kids--a 13yo and a 9 yo. Fergus was great with both boys and was especially helpful with our 9yo who was terrified at the beginning of the trip. Big
