Sit-On-Top Kayaking in the Stunning PNW

A Day of Whitewater Adventure

Have you been on several rafting trips and are ready for the next adventure? Are you interested in whitewater kayaking but worried that being upside down in a kayak learning to roll might not be suitable for you? A Wet Planet Sit-On-Top Paddling Trip is the perfect adventure. This trip is for anyone who wants to get out on the river and experience the sensation of paddling your own boat without having any prior experience.

If you just want to try whitewater kayaking and have fun on the river for a day while following the lines through the rapids with Wet Planet’s experienced and entertaining guides, this is your trip. We provide all gear, equipment, shuttles, and a delicious riverside lunch. Perfect for families, youth groups, and anyone interested in learning whitewater kayaking but not quite ready to take our 2 to 3-Day Beginner Kayaking Course.

No Experience Necessary!

The fun and convenient benefits of a Sit-On-Top kayak are its ease of maneuvering downstream and its stability and forgiving nature. Should you tip over, it is very easy to recover and get “back on the horse.” You can just climb back on.

This guided trip on the Wild & Scenic section of the Lower Klickitat River includes mostly Class II whitewater with a fun Class III rapid known as Ishy Pishy, creating a grand finale at the end of the day.

An added bonus is that the Klickitat River Canyon is always sunny and dry during the summer! The Klickitat is located on the dryer east side of the crest of the Cascade Mountains, flowing into the Columbia River Gorge by the town of Lyle (10 miles east of Hood River and White Salmon).

Still not sure if Sit-on-Top Kayaking is for you? Check out our top 5 reasons to take a Sit-On-Top Kayaking Trip this summer!

“Went on the SOT kayaking trip today. It was fantastic! We had so much fun. Everyone there was so helpful, we got great safety info and our guide Dylan was superb! Was my first time in class 2/3 rapids and Dylan’s advice and help really made it a great experience. What a beautiful place to kayak! Plan on going again next year!”
