Are you a beginner or a seasoned river rafter, either way you are sure to have a good time. This was my first time river rafting, and I really appreciated that Wildwater River Tours made the experience educational, safe, and fun. Kim and Eric were excellent guides. I know I appreciated the how-to and safety tips beforehand. If you follow what your guide says, you will have a good time. Go with a friend, family member or with a group.
We saw Osprey (Seahawks!) and plenty of Mayflies. Seeing that this is June, we wore wet suits – no helmet necessary. Great weather and the water level was just right… it provided enough dips/waves for us to get a bit wet and experience a bit of excitement. We saw other rafters, kayakers, and a wave boarder too.
We all met at Riverside Park in Cashmere, WA and were then drove to an area in Leavenworth, WA for the start. The rafting trip was on the Wenatchee River and approximately 16 miles. The tours run April – July and can be 3-1/2 hours+ depending on the water flow. This is a class III+ river, this means that there are some nice rapids to maneuver through and can be a bit tricky, but with everyone working together a lot of fun too. Not for the very young, but a great time for everyone else.
