Guest Testimonials

This is my third time using Wildwater River Guides and I continue to have great experiences each time. Spencer was our guide down the White Salmon and we're planning on booking a couple more trips and requesting him specifically. If you're new to rafting or looking to try a new guided tour, I highly recommend Spencer and the team over at Wildwater River Guides.
