White water rafting!!!!!!

One-Day Whitewater Rafting Trip
6 Hours - 18 Miles

Begin this action-packed adventure at Harpham Flats on the Deschutes River. Tackle a series of Class III and IV rapids, including the infamous Box Car, before stopping at Maupin City Park for a delicious BBQ steak and chicken lunch. Then feel your adrenaline peak again as we ride Oak Springs and (if you're feeling adventurous) bodysurf the elevator rapids, before we portage around Sherar's Falls. The final, five-mile stretch includes both the challenging Wreck Rapids and calmer waters with spectacular views of high-desert rock formations and wildlife. Our day trip is the longest and the best value on the Deschutes - you won't be disappointed!

 

Rafting Trip includes:

  • Six-hour, 18-Mile Float on Deschutes River
    Departs at 10:00 a.m.
  • Professional Guide
  • BBQ Steak and Chicken Lunch
  • Group Rafting Instructions
  • Rafting Gear: Paddles, Life Jackets
  • Shuttle Service
  • Dry Bags for personal items
  • Unlimited fun!

We need to be there by 930am!

 

I talked to the man in charge and he will give us a deal 70$ per person for a all day trip!

    Looks like I am going solo and meeting ya'll there. Not sure which there is there, though. Are we meeting at Sage Canyon River Company or are we meeting near the Oasis Cafe, where their website says they put in?

    A reply here should reach me, or you can use email through the Meetup system. Thanks!

    Does anyone have space in their vehicle? I was thinking of camping after the trip but I just accepted a new job and need to be back on Thursday, so I don't need to bring my own vehicle. (Tessa -- I will be there either way.) Alternatively, if some else needs a ride, I can drive us. I will be coming from Vancouver, but I could swing by the Gateway Transit center or some other meeting place in Portland/Gresham if necessary.

    Thanks!

    I just found you guys! How exciting -- Does anyone still have space for me in their car?

    May 8, 2013

    • Nai S.

      I'll text you my address when you message me. Don't want to be posting that in public. If you could be at my place at 6:45 I think that would give us plenty of time to get there.

    Hi. I've never been before, so I'm looking forward to it. How much is a wetsuit rental? I'm not sure if I'll need it, but would be nice to have something waterproof. Also, is there anyone I could ride with? I live inner SE pdx.

    May 7, 2013

    • Christine

      That would be great. I can totally pitch in for gas. What time are you leaving? 7am?

      May 8, 2013

    • Nai S.

      7am would be the latest I would like to leave. The trip says the drive will be 2 hours 11 minutes from my house. I'm thinking leave between 6:30-6:45 because we have to be there by 9:30. My cell is[masked]-8758. Give me a call or text to follow up later.

      May 8, 2013

  • Todd O

    I'm thinking of camping Wednesday night around the river or Mt. Hood and doing a hike before coming back to town. Would anyone else be interested in that?

    April 29, 2013

    I just got confirmation I have the day off! If anyone needs a ride please let me know. I live around the sellwood area/ inner SE Portland. Just asking for $7 in gas from my calculations. I have a very roomy new Subaru Legacy if anyone is wondering.

    May 7, 2013

    This is a good package deal.

    So we don't have to pay until we show up the morning of the trip. It will be 70 for the whole day. He said we shouldn't need wetsuits but there are some for rent if anyone decides they want some. (of course you can bring your own.) For anyone that doesn't feel like they can handle the IV tides there is an alternative route around that part of the trip, which they will talk about before we take off. The company is the SageRafting company.
