Everyone knows the Spokane river cuts through downtown Spokane but most believe it ends at Spokane Falls...well that is where ROW Adventures begins! You'll cut through class III rapids named the Devil's Toenail and the world-famous Bowl & Pitcher! You can also choose a gentle float trip where you'll enjoy paddling through Riverside State Park and viewing our region's wildlife!

Rafting on the Spokane River

Elliott was our guide on this adventure. He was very knowledgeable about rafting and the surrounding area. We had a fantastic experience.

Acadia was our competent, cheerful guide on the Spokane, Elliot was the guide on the other raft and we can't forget our bus driver, think his name was Rob or Ron. It was a delightful afternoon, a surprising view of an area we thought we knew and some pretty thrilling whitewater as well. If you've lived in the Spokane area... More

Having a great deal of respect for water and being someone who said "I would NEVER do that" well again I attacked my fear, put my trust into this company and had one check of a great time! We had a group of 29 high school students, some were nervous as I was. This team of white water experts put... More

Had a wonderful time floating the river with Marriya as our guide - she was both knowledgeable about the history of the area and a great rafting guide. Rob rocked as our driver and even had us cold sodas after our morning on the river.

Early July raft trip, no whitewater available so signed up for the 'lazy tour' from Spokane. Matthew was one of our 3 guides (about 18 in our group). We learned a lot about the environment of the river as well as details & history on Spokane. We had 2 rafts a a bunch of kayaks on the tour. All guides,... More

Matthew was an excellent guide with many stories to share. Could not have asked for better! We wish we could convince him to move to Oklahoma to teach our children environmental science and history. He could then watch his formerly beloved NBA team! Speaking of excellence, Rob's bus driving skills were beyond compare. If he had been my bus driver... More
