Picture a lazy river, warm breezes and a total release of all your cares! This is your afternoon with ROW Adventures on the lower Spokane. There is a peaceful five-mile section of river with gentle flows that run all summer long. 

During the long days of summer, the sun doesn't set until almost 9:00 pm, and we have sunlight late into the evening. Leave your worries behind and join us to paddle through the beauty of the lower Spokane River Gorge. The relaxing trip float through a peaceful five-mile section with gentle flows that run all summer long and our departure is timed to take advantage of the wildlife that roams along the riverbank.

Deer, herons, osprey, eagles and even beaver are active at this time of day. As the trip continues we will stop at a beach where we provide complimentary beverages including soda, water, juice, beer, and wine served along with cheese and crackers. Book now for an experience that promises to be rejuvenating and exciting!

Where to Park: There are about 12 parking spots at the Glover Field facility.  If those are full, there is street parking on Water Street to the west, or to the south on Main Street. There is also paid off street parking at 1193 W Main Ave. Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early so you have time to park and walk to meet us.

Summer of 2020 Update:  

As of June 29, 2020 we are operating under Washington State Phase 2 rules for outdoor recreation as well as the June 26th Statewide requirement for facial coverings. This rule says that "...individuals may remove face coverings under certain circumstances, including...while outdoors in public areas, provided that a distance of six feet is maintained from people who are not members of their household."  This means that we cannot take more than one household in a raft and also, in order to maintain six feet between our guide and the household party in the raft, we can take no more than four people in a raft.  However, we do have sit-on-top kayaks and for our float trips, these are perfect for maintaining physical distancing as only one person goes in each kayak.  In addition, relative to Phase 2 rules, on each trip we currently operate on the Spokane River, we can take "a maximum of eight households and a maximum of 12 individuals in a group." 

To avoid group transport we are meeting guests at the put-in at Glover Field by the river in downtown Spokane where you will park your car. The first 4 people to sign up can ride in our van back to the put-in. If we have only 6-8 on a trip everyone can ride in our van.  If we have 9-12 on the trip, then we will provide transportation to the first 4-6 people that signed up plus 1-2 drivers of any other party back to Glover Field where they will retrieve their car and then return to the take out point to get their passengers.  On float trips this is a 10-15 minute drive. On our whitewater rafting trips it is about 25 minutes.  All passengers in our vans must wear face masks. COVID-19 operations demand new thinking and flexibility and we appreciate your understanding.
