Moonlight Summer Rafting

Experiencing the Upper Yakima River at night is an unforgettable experience. There are not many experiences that beat watching a full moon peak over the river valley or seeing a meteor shower in almost pitch dark.

This trip can be done in paddle boats or with an oar rig if you would prefer. On an oar boat, your guide will do all the work from the back of the boat instead of each person helping with a paddle.

On this trip, we meet just after sunset at our office in Thorp, we do introductions, a safety briefing, and then head to the river. Usually, the moon is behind the hills when we start so you can experience the stars in pitch black, then halfway, the moon makes a grand appearance.
