We were the first and the longest running rafting company on the Deschutes River. We've done this a few times. 



We are committed to having the best gear for your outdoor adventure and a friendly staff to guide the way. 


We know just how to hit the rapids, all the best swimming spots and some good jokes!

We won't charge you an arm and a leg to go rafting with us, you'll need those to paddle.

  • Merge onto I-84 E toward The Dalles.
  • Take the US-197 exit, EXIT 87, toward Dufur/Bend.
  • Turn right onto US-197 South.
  • After 1/4 mile at stop sign follow US-197 South to the left. 
  • Head 38 miles to Maupin on US-197 south.
  • Once you drop into town (you will see sidewalks) we are the first buisness on your left.
