Looking for adventure? We've got two amazing options for you to get your whitewater rafting fix!  We've partnered with one of the best rafting outfitters in the city to bring you a no-hassle rafting trip complete with round trip transportation from Seattle and a post-rafting cookout that's sure to spice up your weekend.

Wenatchee River (Class III Option)

Board a luxury coach in South Lake Union (downtown Seattle) for a short ride over the Cascade mountains to scenic Leavenworth (Washington's Bavarian themed town).  You'll enter the river in Cashmere, where you'll rush past the white rock escarpments of the North Cascades on the Class III/III+ big water rapids known in the area as one of the country's top whitewater rafting rivers.  Wind your way through incredible scenery toward rapids like Snowblind, Drunkard's Drop, and Rock 'n' Roll before spilling out onto calm sun-soaked waters. 

After your rafting excursion, we'll head on over to a local beer garden for a cookout with delicious food and tons of craft beer options!  In addition to your meal, you'll also receive a drink ticket (on us) valid for a beer, wine, or soda!  You'll also have the option to roam Leavenworth and explore before heading back to Seattle.  This trip is perfect for first-time rafters and seasoned veterans alike!  Duration: Approx. 11 hours.  Ages 16+

Skykomish River (Class IV/V Option)

If you're an adrenaline junkie, the Skykomish river is just for you!  Hop on board a luxury coach for a short (< 1 hour) drive to whitewater rafting!  Paddle away from tranquil Gold Bar where you'll embark on an action-packed trip through thundering class IV waters.  Expert guides will lead you through famous rapids including Cable Drop, Boulder Drop, and many more! 

By the time you reach Big Eddy State Park, you'll be drenched, ecstatic, and ready for the riverside feast.   The post-rafting cookout is BYOB for the Skykomish River, so feel free to bring along your favorite drink to celebrate an adrenaline filled day out on the water!  Duration: Approx. 9 hours.  Ages 21+
