Absolutely wonderful! Restful, great weather, fantastic food, fun energetic guides. It felt like all our needs were anticipated and fully met. Our group ranged in age from 12 to 84 and no one was left out. By the end of the second exciting day of rapids we were all great friends who had started out the day before as strangers. Camping on the beach with first class equipment, even the eldest of the group slept well, and the moon over the river, what more needs to be said!

Thank you Salmon Raft for a great rafting experience.

I can’t wait to go again and highly recommend that this be added to everyone’s bucket list.

My husband, son and two of my son’s friends (all three 14 year old boys) went on the Express trip last week and came back just thrilled about their experience! From start to finish, the three of them felt like royalty and the personal attention was just incredible. Add to that a great ride down the river, it made for a trip of a lifetime. Extra kudos to their guide, Greg…he was awesome! On a scale of 1-10, this was an 11! Can’t go wrong with Salmon Raft!

Incredible ! Absolutely the best experience of my life. The crew worked non-stop to make sure you were enjoying yourself and fed before they thought of themselves. Great Crew ! Whitewater rafting should only be done with Salmon Raft !!! Get on a raft with these guys and pure excitement awaits. You will love it !! Never before have I been completely amazed at my enjoyment. I can’t stop talking about this vacation choice and probably never will. Greg and Drew thanks. Chris, you developed a great team.

We enjoyed a three day raft excursion with a large group of family and friends. It was one of the best family vacations ever. There was something for everyone, hikes, hot springs, happy hour and even a morning yoga session on the beach. Oh, and some great rapids and rafting too. Chris, Lauren and all the guides were always one step ahead to make sure everyone’s needs were well taken care of. Our group included lots of teenagers and young adults and they all had a fantastic time. No cell phones, no internet, just lots of conversation and adventure.

Five female friends of a certain age, enjoyed a two-day rafting trip down the Salmon River with guides Drew and Greg. It was a fantastic, well organized, and exciting trip. From the early morning start to the mid afternoon end a day later, we were thoroughly indulged. From the lunches (what a variety of choices: fresh fruit, cheeses, cold cuts, home baked cookies and salads) to the sublime experience of eating a three course dinner on a beach (steaks, Portobello mushrooms stuffed with spinach and goat cheese, wine, champagne, beers and a peach cobbler which blew our collective socks off) we felt really spoiled!
Our guides were efficient, charming, worked incredibly hard to ensure we could relax and do some bonding. A Bocce ball competition kept us awake till late and as we retired to our tents, the sky exploded with stars.

This trip was better than anything I had anticipated. The owners, Lauren and Chris have such a fine tuned sense of customer service, many other places could do well to follow their example. This is an unreserved five star review for Salmon Raft, and we’ll be back!!

Wow, what a fantastic 2 day trip five middle aged ladies had this past weekend with Salmon Raft! The rafting was great fun, exciting as well as relaxing. The Salmon River and surrounding scenery is gorgeous, I was happy to see it so pristine. Our guides Drew and Greg were delightful, very friendly, knowledgeable and professional, they worked extremely hard to make sure we had a wonderful experience and stayed safe. We were certainly pampered! The food was delicious, sleeping equipment very comfortable, all equipment is in excellent condition.

I highly recommend this company, our experience couldn’t have been better!

We’ve done many rafting trips over the years and this was certainly the best. Safety was paramount, knowledgeable and experienced guides, great coordination for our large group. Highly recommended.

In June 2014 my family and I went to McCall for a big family get away. I discovered Salmon Raft online and corresponded with Salmon Raft (Lauren) about setting up a trip. Lauren was prompt to respond, flexible and accommodating with our group. We did the shorter day trip and totally got our monies worth. From planning the trip to executing the trip Salmon raft is top notch. The ride was safe, exciting and beautiful. My highlight of the trip was the guide taking us on a short hike up to a mountain hot springs (hollowed out log filled up with natural hot water). So cool!

This was my first rafting experience, but I am now definitely hooked. From the minute we showed up, Chris was helpful, informative, and friendly. The snacks provided were just what you need on a trip like this–Lauren even baked us cookies (which were AMAZING). I have never laughed so hard in my life, and look forward to doing this again. My friends and I are even thinking of booking a 2-4 day trip in the future 🙂

Chris and Lauren, the owners, are great. Lauren was timely returning emails and always available by phone to answer questions. Chris was an awesome guide on the river….safe, knowledgable, and friendly. Our trip was modified to accommodate a 6 and 8 year old, as well as two seniors. The lunch was well thought out and delicious. They went to the trouble to bring a lot of fresh and healthy food to meet everyone’s tastes. All the guides on our trip were fun and friendly. I highly recommend Salmon Raft!



I just wanted to thank you both for working with my group to customize our rafting trip. Reducing the travel distance made the trip more of a manageable time from and we experienced the rapids in both the rafts and kayak. Our friends and kids loved it! White water rafting is definitely an activity we will do again and again. The guides were experienced and very friendly.

It was really great that Chris took some amazing photos of our group going thru the rapids so we could remember the great time we had. I know it is just a hobby of Chris’ but that was a special extra touch that capped off an amazing trip.

Thanks again for the memorizes that will last a lifetime.
