Family Rafting & Lunch trips!
Breathtaking in all the best ways, this exciting trip is our most popular, especially for families. Taking off north of Sun Valley at the Elk Creek launch site, ride into the famed rapid “Piece of Cake” that starts off a series of lively class II and III rapids. Between waves, you’ll swap stories with our great guides, learn about local wildlife, and take in some astonishing scenery. Finish with a thrilling three-quarter-mile stretch of class III rapids nicknamed “The Narrows,” and a stop at the clear, deep swimming hole of Jump Rock. Choose this trip in either paddle rafts or kayaks.
Family Rafting Trip | 3-4 Hours
On this trip, you will get a true feeling for river time yet be back in Sun Valley for dinner. The half-day is our most popular trip which begins north of Sun Valley at the Elk Creek launch site.
Around the bend, you will encounter Piece of Cake, which starts off the series of Class 2 and 3 rapids. Between rapids, you will share stories with the guides, learn about local wildlife, and take in some astonishing scenery.
Lunch Rafting Trip | 4-5 Hours
While you and your family experience thrilling Class 2 and Class 3 rapids, our fired up cooks will be preparing for your arrival at our private riverside camp.
You will step on to our beach where appetizers, cold beverages, and a relaxing outdoor setting await. Enjoy a freshly prepared meal, have a second serving, but save room for a deliciously prepared dessert.
After lunch, enjoy a leisurely stretch of river, allowing time to kick back and relax before we take out at Torrey’s Hole.
We provide wetsuits, splash tops, helmets, fleece, and booties for your trip (children sizes as well). For most trips, these items are not necessary but may be requested by guests at any time (some folks get cold easier than others and it’s always better to over-prepared). Just ask us if you have any questions about the gear we provide.
For early season trips (May and June) and High Adventure Trips, we suggest bringing plenty of clothes (all of our guides carry dry bags to stow extra clothes on the boats). You may also leave clothes on the bus and change at the end of the trip as well. Please stay away from cotton clothing; cotton stays wet, making you cold, and ultimately can affect the enjoyment of your trip.
For all trips, we suggest bringing a bathing suit or shorts, t-shirt, sandals that fasten securely or shoes, hats, sunscreen, and sunglasses, and a water bottle. During the summer months (July and August) most of our guests find they dry off quickly and don’t need much additional clothing.
We’ll raft as long as there isn’t hazardous lightning, but ultimately it’s up to you. If you are not comfortable with what Mother Nature is offering and would like to reschedule or cancel, (even the morning of the trip) we have a 100 % money-back policy, no questions asked.
