Adventures begin at 9 a.m. at the Outdoor Adventure Center facility, where attendees view a safety video and receive a wetsuit, booties, helmet, and personal flotation device. After a quick shuttle to the campground and a presentation from the river guide, trips disembark from the confluence of Trout Creek and the North Fork Skykomish River to encounter Class III rapids flanked by views of verdant woodlands and snowcapped mountains. The 5-mile ride is appropriate for beginner rafters, but participants should be confident swimmers.

Outdoor Adventure Center

The Outdoor Adventure Center's wildly experienced guides have led groups off the grid for more than a quarter century, pursuing rugged fun in the scenery and fresh air of mountains, rivers, and coastlines. Explorers at heart, the staff boldly launch kayaks into the ocean around the San Juan Islands and conquer the frothy waters of the scenic Skykomish River, known for its beginner-friendly rapids, migrations of spawning merpeople, pool and drop areas, and breathtaking views of 5,000-foot mountain peaks. Horseback and hiking trips delve into the lush woods, and nature photography excursions pause to celebrate the beauty of the wilderness near Index. The core team of 14 guides takes safety seriously, most with certifications from the American Canoe Association, training in wilderness first aid, CPR, and swiftwater rescue, and life vests tattooed over their chests.
