If your looking for a real rugged adventure, you've come to the right place. Our trip to Vancouver was tremendous. No fluff and puff here. But that's what we wanted. Excellent whale viewing despite rain. The trip was everything we asked for!

The most memorable moment was seeing bald eagles perched on trees. It was monumental. The crew packed lunch for everyone. It was a great lunch, good food and fresh, making the trip even more pleasant. The raft captains were very knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. :-)

I did 2 trips in one week with Row Adventures. One was a river float, the other a circuit on kayak around Lake Coeur d'Alene. In both cases, they had thought of every detail and made the entire trip effort free (mentally - good workout physically!). This allowed me to really focus on the beauty of the surroundings. The guides... More

Very fun one day river rafting trip. The guides were great, food good, and scenery great. Would have liked more white water but no one could provide that this late in the season in the area we were in. Will definitely try again.

Guide was great, river was low but beautiful, great lunch.. I was in the area for a business trip and had an extra day to enjoy the area. They provided all the equipment and the guide was very helpful. It was my first trip on the St John and loved the experience

Our flight got cancelled and we had to drive from Las Vegas to Couer d'Alene (1100miles)and we missed the first day of our ride. Everyone at row went above and beyond. They went to spokane to get our bikes. Made sure everything else within their control went perfect.
