White Cloud Rafting Adventures - Stanley: $38 for a Half-Day Floating Excursion from White Cloud Rafting Adventures in Stanley (Up to $77.25 Value)

Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust. Enjoy the refreshing benefits of aquatic adventure with today's Groupon: for $38, you get a half-day float on the Idaho River (up to a $77.25 value) from White Cloud Rafting Adventures in Stanley. Due to the yearly rise in water levels, White Cloud Rafting Adventures typically cannot run trips from September 2 until about 10 days later, when levels even out.

White Cloud's seasoned river chaperones guide adventure-seekers down the Idaho River on smooth trips that avoid treacherous rapids to create an enjoyable ride for even the youngest rowers. Embarking from White Cloud's headquarters at 9 a.m., the half-day float takes a crew of up to 10 guests on a guided tour of the Sun Valley's scenic network of waterways. Excursions take place in an inflatable raft maneuvered by the trip leader and a small crew of Viking oarsmen, allowing wave riders to fully enjoy panoramic vistas of the Salmon River and surrounding Sawtooth Wilderness Area. During the ride, aquatic adventurers can hop in the river to practice their freestyle stroke, scan adjacent banks for elusive wildlife, or engage in ethical debates with passing trout. White Cloud provides all of the required equipment, and riders will have ample time during the trip to take pictures or enjoy a snack from the comfort of the raft.

White Cloud Rafting Adventures

Along the banks of the Salmon River, elk and moose lumber through the trees, bald eagles soar overhead, and kingfishers plunge downward to snatch fish from the white-crested rapids. This world of rushing water and bustling wildlife is the playground of White Cloud Rafting Adventures’ skilled whitewater-rafting guides, who tailor their trips to fit each group’s unique chemistry. “Once you get out there, you’re on river time,” says Jeremy, manager of White Cloud Rafting Adventures. “We aren’t having board meetings.” Accordingly, each trip proceeds at its own pace, drifting along lazily or tackling rapids that rank up to Class IV in a precise system that measures each wave’s level of belligerence. The licensed guides who captain each expedition not only meet but exceed state requirements, having trained in first aid and CPR techniques. In addition to taking paddlers on rafting and kayaking expeditions, they lead fly-fishing jaunts that nab rainbow, brook, and cutthroat trout for feeding to pet alligators. Whether battling rapids or slicing through quiet waters, Jeremy hopes his customers will “get something out of them that they can’t experience on a regular basis.
