White Salmon Trips and Prices
Whitewater Thrills Option: River Drifters offers half-day trips on the White Salmon River. In the Spring, the river tumbles and charges its way down a narrow basalt canyon. The rapids are big & bouncy with many large waves and powerful holes. With rapids like Maytag, Corner Cave, Grasshoper, Siwash, Corkscrew, Waterspout, Stairstep, Highway Hole, Rattlesnake, Deadmans' Corner (and many more), you will absolutely love this trip.
This phenomenal trip is eight miles in length and the first five miles is continuous class III+ and IV rapids! Trips run daily, starting in March and lasting into November, meeting at 9:30am or 2:30pm!
All prices include a professional guide in every boat, life jackets, helmets, wetsuits, & paddle jackets (if needed)!

Who Can Go?
The White Salmon River trip is available for the family with kids older than 12 (in May and June) and older than 10 (in July, August and September). If you have kids under these ages you should consider a Deschutes River trip that is more suitable for kids.
During both the Spring and Summer months, our guests must be able to walk a sloping trail to the river and/or during a portage, please be sure that walking such a trail is not a problem for you.
