Experience the river like never before!

2019 Season starts Saturday, March 2nd.



Providing amazing adventures since 1978, we’ve made the conscious decision to keep our company small. With decades of industry experience, we’ve learned that smaller more intimate trips are the way to go, both for our customers and guides! Come hit the river with us and you will notice the difference WET River Trips makes in your next adventure.


These guys are the best!

Feel safe with our awesome team. Our team members have an average of ten years experience and are professionally trained in river running, CPR and First Aid. Our Trip Leaders are Swift Water Rescue trained and many of our staff have advanced licensing in Wilderness First Aid, EMT, EMR, and Nursing. These guys love whitewater and you’ll feel the difference on a trip with us!

The best places with the best food.

We believe that great food and great views makes for a great trip and we will make believers outs of you! Rafting is a great way to build up an appetite and we’ll make sure you don’t go hungry. All of our trips* included a deluxe deli spread prepared fresh riverside by your amazing guides.

*Not included in “Express” trips.

Be the Hero of your organization.
