Oregon River Rafting and Washington River Rafting with Wet Planet
With Wet Planet, from the time you arrive at our riverside headquarters in Washington (just 1 hour 15 minutes from Portland, OR) to the time you leave, our team works to ensure that your time both on the river and off the river exceeds your expectations. Once you arrive at Wet Planet, we take care of everything you need for the trip, from gear, to instruction, to shuttle to and from the river, to taking photos of your trip. We’ve got it covered!
After you’ve checked-in, you’ll have time to grab a quick coffee at the Wet Planet espresso bar before meeting your guides for the trip. Your guides will help you prepare for the trip, taking time to help outfit you with all of the rafting gear you’ll need. Included in the cost of all of our trips is a Personal Flotation Device (PFD), helmet, paddle, wetsuit, paddle jacket, fleece jacket if needed, and booties for your feet (everything you’ll need). Next, it’s time to travel a very short distance to the river in a Wet Planet shuttle vehicle. At the river, your guides will cover a detailed trip orientation discussing river rafting basics such as how to sit in the raft and paddle. Then the rafting trip begins! By the first rapid, you’ll feel like a pro as everyone will be paddling together and effectively under your guide’s directions to ensure a spectacular day of whitewater and excitement! All of our trips will end back at our riverside headquarters where you’ll have ample opportunity to relive the thrills of the day through pictures and stories.
