What you'll do

The White Salmon River flows through a collapsed lava tube coming off Mt. Adams, a designated Wild and Scenic area - it's stunning.
Expect to paddle several worthy class III and IV rapids.

We'll meet at Northwestern Park just outside of White Salmon WA, across the river from from Hood River. It's an hour and a half from Portland in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. We'll be rafting the White Salmon River, an estuary of the Columbia.

After introductions we'll outfit you with a wetsuit, wetsuit booties, helmet and personal floatation device. We'll then take a short van ride to the put in. After an informative river orientation talk we walk down a path to the river, the noise of the rapids ever growing as we descend!

Three hours later we'll be back at our cars; Photos of the trip as well as merchandise will be for sale. You may choose to bring a picnic and relax in the park after our trip or check out downtown White Salmon and Hood River.

I love this river and sharing the experience and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Scott and his team are so nice, provide all the equipment you need for the cold water, and our guide Frank was so sweet and made sure we stayed safe. Felt good to get connected with a small business rather than the bigger corporations - it added a lot of personality to the orientation, too.

Amazing time with knowledgeable and friendly guides! This is a one of the smaller rafting companies in the area, and it felt great to be able to support a small business while having a great time.

Our rafting trip down the river was amazing! Hank was extremely informative, kept us safe, and made the experience so much fun. Will definitely recommend to anyone we know traveling to the Portland area.

This experience was everything and more. Scott was our guide out of the 3 rafts and it couldn’t of been better. It was my first time water rafting and the entire team made us feel safe with great guidance before hitting the water. Scott kept us entertained with fun facts down the river and guided us all with what direction we needed to navigate the rapids. Don’t hesitate and book this amazing experience, it’s worth every single cent. The photographer also did an amazing job at capturing all the moments.

Do it!! So much fun, they take safety seriously, and have a ton of experience. I really think it will be difficult to ever beat rafting the white salmon. I will book with Scott again!!

Scott and his Portland Rafting team are an amazing group of people. If you want a personalized rafting experience with great stories and anecdotes, but also excitement and adventure, this is the outfitter for you. Scott was our guide and told about about the history of the White Salmon River, as well as the flora and fauna native to the area. Oh, and he took us down some great rapids, got us soaked and plunged us off the side of a legit waterfall. Ditch the big corporate rafting companies and go with Scott and his awesome team of locals. You won’t regret it. We didn’t!
