Blue Sky Outfitter's Owner told me that the First Week in June has the highest waves of the year! This is when the river is a class 3+ due to the melting snow from the Cascades.

Now is the time to get the wildest ride and largest waves of the year on the Wenatchee.

Rated in The Top 10 Best Rivers

You'll begin your adventure in the majestic Leavenworth Valley, where the picturesque Icicle Creek calmly joins the Wenatchee River. From here, we'll float past the beautiful and authentically recreated Bavarian town of Leavenworth, Washington. Surrounded by dramatic mountains, the Leavenworth Valley truly looks like your in the middle of the German Alps. Once through town, the Wenatchee River accelerates into the rollercoaster and fun-fulled waves of Chumstick Canyon, followed directly by the powerful and technical Boulder Garden.*

Then you'll have time to relax, enjoy the beautiful scenery, play games, and have fun waterfighting. Next comes the rumbling of Rock'n'Roll, with its legendary Satans' Eyeball. Great fun for everyone! Just downstream we'll coast to the banks by Dryden Dam and portage the rafts.

Drunkards Drop on the Wenatchee River

Here we'll take a short break before hitting the Wenatchee's best whitewater of the day! The excitement begins immediately as you launch directly into Upper Gorilla and Sharkstooth, filled with lots of exciting waves. A few rapids later is Rodeo Hole, where you’ll see colorful kayakers showing off their best moves. Soon you’ll be upon the haystack waves of Drunkards Drop. The finale is the dramatic sandstone ledges of Snowblind, where your guide will show off their cool moves through this big water technical maze, followed by the huge waves of Grannys & the Suffacator.

*When the water levels are lower, we begin our trips just below Leavenworth. Also, by mid-summer the weather is HOT so be sure to bring your sunscreen, hats, and bottles of water.

Blue Sky Outfitters' Famous Top Sirloin Steak
The Best Food

Our trip ends at Riverside Park, where you’ll change back into your dry clothes, load up your plate at our Top Sirloin Steak BBQ -- with corn on the cob, potato salad, french bread, and lemonade. Relive your river rafting trip viewing photos from the day. There’s plenty of time and open space for Frisbee, soccer, flying kites, and anything else you can think of doing in an open, grassy park.
Check out our new Steak BBQ Photo Album on Facebook!

    I guide down the river for a living, I for sure do not want to do it as a leisure activity.

    This is a multisite listing. Car Pool arrangements will need to be made by those signing up. I will be Car Pooling from the SR 512 Park & Ride in Lakewood.
