Whitewater Rafting Trips

We offer everything from a short half-day rafting trip consisting of 13 miles of whitewater to a one-day rafting trip, a real adventurous trip comprised of 18 miles of class III and IV rapids. Both include our renowned barbecue steak and chicken lunch, shuttling service, all your rafting gear, and of course, one of our well-experienced guides. If you’re still looking for more adventure and drenching whitewater on the Deschutes River, join us on one of our two or three day raft trips. These trips are guaranteed to soak away your cares while you tackle tons of rapids and still see beautiful scenery, big horn sheep, and even an eagle or two. In the evenings you’ll have lots of time to explore or simply kick back and relax while we satisfy your tastes with our gourmet dinners. There is nothing like escaping from civilization and reuniting with nature. Looking for a new way to spice up this year’s annual company retreat? Try out our newest offer. Just a short drive to the outskirts of Maupin is a scenic conference room located on a local ranch where you’ll hear nothing but the breeze.
