Some of our most fun trips are with families. Whether it’s young kids and parents or adult kids and their parents or extended families together for a reunion, the joyful memories on the river make it all worth it for us.
The Clackamas River works well in the summer for young kids as the water level is less intimidating, weather is warmer and there is more time for fooling around. For a mix of adults and kids we can always arrange boats by the desired experience (wetter/more aggressive, less wet/ milder ride). The N. Santiam River is a great beginner trip for families that just want to see if they like rafting. The Sandy River is also a nice beginner trip in the spring which is close to Portland.
