Our full-day adventure begins with a beautiful drive along the Clackamas River, where most people are wide-eyed at what the day will include. The trip begins with a thorough paddling, safety and historical briefing of the river and then it’s time to hit the rapids! There is a small warm-up before our first major rapid called Powerhouse (class III+). From there, we will paddle through countless rapids and witness breath-taking scenery. A little over halfway we will stop for a much-needed break and have a great lunch. After lunch awaits some of the best and most famous rapids of the day. The trip concludes at Moore Creek, OR where your vehicles are conveniently located.
One of the great advantages of the full-day trip (besides the higher water and larger waves), is the beautiful six-mile uppermost section of the run. This section includes remote water, more chances for seeing wildlife and many big and challenging rapids!
If your time is in a pinch and you would love to have a great river trip without spending the whole day on the river, then our half-day trips are perfect. We travel 8 miles through some of the rivers’ more famous rapids. The rivers’ lower water levels turns the river into an exciting and technical class III+ run. For almost the entire half-day portion of the trip, the river is filled with back-to-back rapids and beautiful calm pools.
