All of our trips meet and depart from the Salmon Raft shop on the corner of Boydstun and Industrial Loop. The Boathouse is the hub for your rafting trip, and we hope you’ll enjoy the space as much as we do. Browse merchandise, learn about the river, play a quick lawn game, meet us for your pre-trip orientation, enjoy a cold drink on the patio, and take advantage of the free, safe parking for your vehicle while you’re playing on the river.
