Group Rafting Events: Fun and Easy to Organize

At Wet Planet Rafting and Kayaking, we know that an exciting river rafting trip can be the ultimate bonding adventure for many groups: family reunions, corporate outings, wedding parties, youth groups, adventure camps, and more! We also recognize that many groups are looking for more than just time on the river. Whether catering a riverside lunch for your baseball team or facilitating transportation for your entire wedding party to our headquarters and back, we enjoy working with groups to ensure their time with Wet Planet is memorable and effortless.

Please share your ideas with us! We can develop a package outside our standard white water rafting trips. From an after-trip riverside BBQ, to our whitewater and wine events, to transportation for your group to and from your hotel, our professional reservations staff will work with you to organize a successful event both on and off the river.

Give us a call at 509.493.8989 and let our Group Reservations Specialist help you organize your event! Our group-specific reservation process eliminates the hassle of organizing your group, allowing you the freedom to enjoy your time on the river. Don’t forget to ask about our group discounts!

Wet Planet has hosted wedding parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, youth group outings, church groups, corporate groups, family reunions, and more. We will make your group’s experience priceless with our specialized attention and professionalism. We are dedicated to making our group reservations process effortless for you!

Rafting Builds Lasting Bonds!

Rafting is the perfect teambuilding activity or ice-breaker for any group, from a corporate work group, to a youth sports team, to the first day of a wedding event.

On the river, you’ll quickly find yourself becoming friends with people who may have been total strangers before your trip. You’ll need to work in tandem with everyone else in your boat; as your guides will tell you, paddling together is key.

As you learn to use each other’s strengths within your raft, you’ll discover something new about everyone, whether you’ve been friends for years or were strangers ten minutes prior. The experience of working together to move the raft smoothly through the challenges of the river is often just the kind of teambuilding effort that brings many groups together.

The bonding experience can also continue off the river when you add a Wet Planet BBQ to the end of your trip, either as lunch or dinner. Our BBQs add an excellent opportunity for relaxed social interaction after the trip and provide a great chance for rafters to re-live their adventures from the river trip. There is no better way to reinforce the bonds created on the river than with food and good company after the trip.

Our riverside headquarters is the ideal spot to organize activities for your rafting trip. With four and a half acres of beautiful property nestled between the White Salmon River and Rattlesnake Creek, we are ideally set up to host your group.

A Smashing Success!

“The rafting activity was a ‘smashing’ success. Staff are still raving about how much fun they had, and that they would do it again. In fact, several who did not participate were so caught up in the excitement, that they have decided to participate next time. You and your staff have been an absolute pleasure and delight to work with. And we will be using you again. Again, thank you so much for a wonderful experience for all the rafters.”
