- Why Wet Planet
Combining a morning of incredible whitewater through our popular Upper White Salmon River and Husum Falls section with an afternoon rafting through the most beautiful canyons of the White Salmon on the Lower Lower section, Wet Planet offers a full-day trip on the White Salmon covering this entire stretch of river. If you want to experience it all, this trip has it:
NOTE: the first half of the full-day trip, up until lunch, is the same trip as the White Salmon River Half-Day trip.
Fed from the glaciers of the majestic Mt. Adams and flowing through spectacular basalt canyons, whitewater river rafting on the White Salmon River epitomizes the lush and wild character of the Pacific Northwest in one exciting raft trip!
Along with exciting class III-IV rapids, the 12-ft Husum Falls (water level permitting) makes a White Salmon Rafting trip absolutely unforgettable. A river-wide ledge, Husum Falls has gained a reputation as one of the top whitewater rapids in the country. Depending upon water levels, your White Salmon raft trip will culminate with a heart-pumping vertical plunge. For many rafters, Husum Falls is a highlight of their White Salmon River trip. If this sounds like too much excitement, don’t worry – Husum Falls is an optional rapid for all of our guests. The decision is yours.
In October of 2011, PacifiCorp breached Condit Dam, allowing the White Salmon River to flow freely to the Columbia River for the first time in roughly 100 years. The “new” section of river flowing to the Columbia from what used to be Northwestern Lake has been termed the “Lower Lower” section of the White Salmon River. The canyons and waterfalls that have been revealed in this section provide some of the most astounding and dramatic scenery on the entire White Salmon River. The second half of the White Salmon Full-Day allows guests an opportunity to raft through these spectacular canyons, through the former dam site, all the way to the Columbia River. While the Lower Lower White Salmon does not contain as much challenging whitewater as the first half of the day, the scenery and opportunity to float through a naturally restoring river canyon make the Full-Day trip a truly memorable experience.
This is the premiere rafting trip in the Pacific Northwest!
