Whitewater Rafting Near Leavenworth Area

My husband and I will be staying in the Leavenworth area for ten days beginning on September 1st, 2014.

We have never been whitewater rafting and would like to try it out during our stay. We will have a car and our 27 year old son may be joining us.

I welcome any suggestions for a whitewater rafting company and location.

Thank you!

You can check in the review section to help choose a company. It's been ages since I did it so I don't have a current recommendation. I don't think you'll get a choice on location-the Wenatchee River is what you'd raft in that area. You'll have to make sure they are still running that late, before you put too much time into choosing an outfitter. When river levels get low in late summer, commercial rafting stops.

Hi Christy,

The rafting season on the Wenatchee will most likely be over but the Tieton River will just be ramping up. The Tieton is located near the Yakima area and is about a 2.5 hour drive from Leavenworth. If you would rather hang out in the Leavenworth area, there are wine tours and stand-up paddle boarding options available to you and our company will be offering all the tours mentioned in this reply.

I booked with Blue Sky Outfitters for the first week of September and rafting on the Tieton River Beth answered my emails immediately and answered all of my questions and concerns. I contacted several outfitters.

Great info on rafting in September:
