An exciting, fun-filled 4 hours of adventure and whitewater through the lower Spokane River Gorge! It's the region's best-kept secret and the most memorable way to see Riverside State Park, the famous Bowl & Pitcher, and the Devil's Toenail! A perfect half-day trip that allows you to enjoy part of the day in the wilderness and the other part in Spokane! No other whitewater trip in the region provides this luxury.

What to Bring:

  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses with retaining head strap - such as "Chums"
  • Swimsuit and/or quick-dry top and bottom
  • Tennis shoes or sports sandals with straps (No flip-flops)
  • Personal water bottle 
  • Waterproof camera (optional)
  • Towel for the end of the day (optional)
  • Polypropylene long underwear or non-cotton base layer on cold days.
  • We will provide you with a rain suit (jacket and pants) for inclement weather.  Sizes are limited so feel free to bring your own.

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.

*Please note we require a minimum of 4 guests to run a trip. If you're on your own, however, you can still join in the fun! We'll try to place you with another group in order to confirm your trip. If you have a group larger than 12, please contact us for availability.

Spring/Summer 2021:

For the spring and summer season of 2021, we will operate under whatever Washington State regulations are in place relative to COVID-19 rules for outdoor recreation.  In 2020 these rules did require us to modify our operations including being able to take only one household group per raft.  During the float-trip season, when we also use sit-on-top kayaks, we had little impact since it's easy to maintain physical distancing in kayaks.

We are hopeful that by late May of 2021 we will be able to operate under normal conditions.  In terms of transportation, our plan for 2021 is to continue to avoid group transport by meeting guests at the put-in at Glover Field by the river in downtown Spokane where you will park your car. Washington State rules and CDC recommendations will determine how transport is conducted.  As the season gets closer we will update this information.

I highly recommend ROW's whitewater trip down the lower Spokane River! Seeing our beloved Spokane River from a raft was an awesome experience! The guide did a great job of giving us information and history of the river along the way, as well as a fun day on the exciting rapids of the Bowl and Pitcher and the Devil's Toenail. Thank you, ROW!

My husband and I went on a trip to WA from KS for.our 5 year wedding anniversary. Us and 2 friends joined us on the rafting trip and we had an amazing time. The guides were super friendly and very knowledgeable! We had a blast and are so glad we had this experience! Also did I mention that it was our first time rafting!

I have been lucky enough to whitewater raft the Spokane river several times!! It is always a blast, and the guides are skilled, fun, and full of historic facts. I always have felt safe, due to the safety briefing before each trip. You are in good hands with ROW. You can just sit back and have an awesome time, however you are involved in the paddling, being involved helps you stay in the boat!! Rafting season will be here soon, I think I better call and make a reservation now!!!
