White Otter did a great job with a large group in Sun Valley for a medical conference. Entire crew was accommodating, knowledgeable, professional, and fun. The gear was great and the lunch excellent. The owner, Doug's love of the river and rafting spills over into all of his guides. Sunny was the best! 😄👍

We have white water rafted in Colorado and we were excited to try rafting Idaho. We had a great trip with Alisa as our guide. We particularly liked this company because we were able to get on the river at the company headquarter and only had to be bused back to our car. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We... More

A few years ago, our family of four took an amazing whitewater trip down the Salmon River with White Otter. This trip was amazing and gave us the "whitewater bug". This year we rented inflatable kayaks. Both experiences were 100% positive. The staff is so friendly, professional, and laid back. The stretch of river they run is scenic, thrilling, and... More

We were a little nervous about white water rafting but White Otter made it painless and an absolute blast. Get there early to enjoy a cup of coffee and a fresh bakery item at the Sunbeam Bakery before heading down to the water. Our guide Josh did an awesome job. I was expecting a little more "work" but Josh guided... More

What a fabulous day on the Salmon with family! Stanley, Idaho is my favorite place on Earth and the Salmon River is one of the main reasons. The folks at White Otter Outdoor Adventures helped to make our river trip easy, enjoyable, flexible, and fun! Three people in our group floated in inflatable kayaks (duckies) and I floated in a...

We decided on a long weekend in Idaho for some fun and relaxation - from Phoenix. Wife researched the rafting companies in area of Ketchum and decided on White Otter which was an excellent choice. We did a morning trip with grade III rapids and Alisa - our guide was informative, fun and a great conversationalist. Her counterpart Andrew in... More

After my friend did a lot of research and called around, we decided to book a white water rafting trip from the White Otter Outdoor Adventure in Sunbeam, ID. We chose the 5 pm time slot because we had never been on an evening float and the days are so long anyways! We were the only people with our guide... More

Enjoyed our experience immensely. Walked from the location to the drop-in site. Very convenient. An excellent guide with plenty of experience, and had kids of his own so he knew how to mix safety with fun. Our boys (6 & 7) enjoyed themselves, and stated this was a highlight of the trip. The rafting in Aug was rather calm, with... More

Had a great time with a really nice group of folks from White Otter. Guides were knowledgeable and very friendly. I'll be booking with them again the next time I'm in the area.

My husband, son and I were visiting the Sun Valley / Stanley area in early August and decided we wanted to do a day trip white water rafting on the Salmon River. After speaking with a couple of local Ketchum residents (including our fly fishing guide who has fished the Salmon River for 30 plus years) we quickly realized that... More
