    What to Expect
    The trip starts at 8:30 am or 12:30 pm MOUNTAIN STANDARD TIME at our shop in downtown Riggins.  After meeting at our shop we will drive five minutes At the put-in where the group will receive the equipment for the trip, including PFD’s for everyone, splash tops and helmets as requested or required. After getting everyone geared up the group will receive a thorough paddling orientation ensuring you have all the info you need to be successful during your river day. Apply the sunscreen and it’s time to start floating.

    The half-day trip starts off with some more mellow whitewater giving everyone a chance to get their feet under them before the group moves into the bigger rapids at Time Zone Bridge.  Here you will have your first taste of the big whitewater and huge thrills to come throughout the rest of the trip. Another big rapid around the corner leads to some time to relax, float and swim.  Sometime downriver and the group will pull over for a quick snack, some rock skipping and maybe even a little swimming before climbing back in the boats to take on the bigger rapids downstream.

    After a number of rapids certain to get the adrenaline pumping we come to the final flats above the takeout.  This is a great chance to hop in the river in your PFD and float along the canyon walls, splash the kids, and reflect on the incredible time you have had floating on the mighty Salmon River.

    As the group pulls into the takeout and the waiting van the guides will quickly pack up all the gear and it’s into the van for a 10 minute ride back to your waiting car and the conclusion of the trip.

    A very pleasant half day trip with Orange Torpedo on the Salmon River. Plenty of calm water with just enough exciting rapids to spice it up. Warm sunshine and enough room in the raft to keep it from feeling crowded. Thanks to our guide, Taylor,...More
