Creating Your Trip
While each family is unique, we work to create a trip that fits your style and needs in order to create the trip you desire. Among many things can include providing for specific meal requests, stopping for extended side canyon hikes, camping near good fishing holes and so on.
Smaller Group Size
We generally prefer to keep group sizes small in order to maximize your wilderness experience. Typically, our Salmon River rafting trips are limited to 12-15 guests and a ratio of 1 guide for every 3-4 guests. We have the ability to accommodate up to 24 guests at one time, for those with larger groups.
At Least Two Boats and Two Guides Per Trip
Our number one goal is to provide you with the safest trip possible. Therefore, we run all of our trips with at least two boats and two licensed guides.
Full Safety Orientation and Gear
Before each Salmon River rafting trip we provide a thorough water safety presentation. For example, as part of our full safety gear ensemble each client that paddles in the inflatable kayaks are provided with helmets. We also provide wetsuits and paddle jackets free of charge when needed.
A Variety of Trip Options
With River Time Guide Service you can choose between different trip lengths and styles. We also offer on our trips opportunities to paddle in rafts and inflatable kayaks and to just enjoy the ride in an oar boat.
Personable Guest to Guide Ratio
We run Salmon River rafting trips with one guide for every three to four guests, a ratio that we feel enhances each guest’s experience in terms of safety, comfort, and good company!
