TRIP DESCRIPTION: A raft trip combining rapids (Class II-IV), sandy beaches, and beautiful scenery. Float 20 miles on the “Riggins Stretch” of the Salmon River. Meet at 9:30 AM (Pacific Time) one mile south of the little town named Lucile. Lucile is 9 miles north of Riggins, Idaho, on Highway 95. The actual place we will meet is a Bureau of Land Management recreation site on Highway 95 at mile marker 204 where there is a sign that says “Lucile Recreation Site.” Off-highway parking is available at this site. Plan on a 2 ¾ hour drive from Pullman. Salmon River Experience provides licensed guides, rafting equipment, shuttle, and deli lunch. You are welcome to supplement our beverages with some of your own (plastic or cans only please).
River: The Salmon is the largest free flowing river in the continental United States. It is the second deepest river gorge, even deeper than the Grand Canyon of Colorado. It is also the longest river to begin and end in the same state, approximately 400 miles.
Rafts: Our self-bailing rafts are 15-16 feet in length. They have multiple air chambers and are rowed or paddled by licensed guides. Although our trips are designed for beginners, advanced boaters find a challenge in the inflatable kayaks and paddle rafts.
Guides: All are licensed by the State of Idaho as river guides. They are very personable and professional.
Safety: Raft upsets are rare on commercial trips. For your safety our life jackets are commercially rated by the U. S. Coast Guard.
Risk: We have never had a serious accident and we feel that we offer a fun, safe trip, but there is always the element of risk in any outdoor activity. We cannot remove it, nor would you want to, as that would take away from the excitement. You will be asked to sign a liability release form.
Credentials: Salmon River Experience is licensed by the Idaho State Outfitters and Guides Board, permitted by the Bureau of Land Management, has thirty-one years experience, is bonded and insured. (We do not have insurance covering personal gear, such as cameras.)
