River Rafting in Washington State
The great state of Washington offers some of the best white-water rafting in the entire country. There are around 15 rivers in Washington state that are great for river rafting. Some of the most famous are the Klickitat, the Yakima, and the Skagit rivers. Each offers a unique Washington river rafting experience.
There are several river recreation outfitters in Washington that specialize in river rafting tours on a variety of Washington rivers. These tours can vary in length from one afternoon to several days. The outfitters usually arrange for accommodations on tours lasting multiple days. Each river recreation outfitter offers trips for rafters at different skill levels. Some of the rivers are rated Class V, which is the rating for the most hazardous rivers navigable, while others are Class I, which means they are a leisurely float suitable for the whole family. Most outfitters offer river tours from May through August, with tours on particular rivers continuing through the fall.
The Klickitat River provides some of the most exciting rafting that Washington has to offer. In the early spring months, runoff created by melting snow from Mt. Adams and the Goat Rock Wilderness drains into the river. This water provides some great rapids, creating adventurous Class III rapids. The river is between 17 and 21 miles long, depending on the water level, and takes about a day to navigate.
The Yakima River provides a relaxing Class I riding experience through 12 miles of beautiful scenery. This river is perfect for beginners or people who just want to relax and enjoy a nice day with their family or friends. The Yakima River is available for rafting between May and August each year.
The Skagit River offers a diver's rafting experience. The upper parts of the river offer rafters a chance to ride some exciting Class II and III rapids that are perfect for novices and families. The lower Skagit River is calmer, with Class I rapids. Both sections are perfect for sightseeing, as the river runs through some of the most scenic parts of Washington state.
Washington river rafting offers visitors a diverse opportunity for fun and excitement. The variety of rivers and beautiful scenery will provide rafters with a great experience that will more than meet their expectations.
River Rafting Info provides detailed information on river rafting trips in Washington, Colorado, California and the Grand Canyon, as well as Salmon River in Idaho and Rogue River in Oregon. River Rafting Info is the sister site of Inflatable Boats Web.
