We offer a superb selection of quality river equipment. We do our best to match the boats to your particular interests, so be sure to let us know your preferences. Guests often plan to rotate between the various types of craft during the trip. All rafts and inflatable kayaks are self-bailing.
The traditional craft, comfortable and exciting to ride, a fine fishing platform, controlled by your guide. 15-17 foot oar rafts are available.
Participate in all the action! Your guide captains the paddle team and explains the route through each rapid.
Solo or tandem boats used for selected portions of a trip. Great fun!
Two fishermen/boat and guide. Rods, reels and tackle provided. Check for rates and details.
Custom-designed pontoons carry the camp gear, duffle, and extra ice chests on the Snake, Middle Fork, Salmon, and Grande Ronde trips. Supply pontoons allow us to offer guest boats that are comfortable, uncluttered, and especially maneuverable. Each day the supply boatman floats ahead to prepare the evening’s camp. When you arrive, your duffle is already unloaded into camp, the tents are pitched, and the kitchen is organized.
