Rafting Trips for Corporate groups

White water rafting is an incredibly fun way of getting co-workers and friends out of the workplace and into an environment where they can learn and grow. It’s one of the most natural “team building” experiences you can get! Whitewater rafting trips promotes trust, communication, and teamwork. A corporate rafting trip helps co workers to support each other, communicate with one another, and work together towards a common goal! This a great way to reward employees, build team spirit, or as an incentive for meeting goals.

Our staff will help you customize your trip if needed, the most popular add on is a lunch to our 1/2 day trips. On the river our guides cater to the needs of each raft, so people of all levels of ability can be nurtured but challenged.

For large groups we suggest calling the office as soon as you have your date(s) selected to check availability. We can hold your spaces until the deposit is made. We will send you an invoice and final balance and head count are due within 1-2 weeks of your trip.
