Main Payette
  Description | Pricing | Photos | Reviews
This three-hour splashy getaway is perfect for anyone - especially families, first-timers, groups, and tours. They put-in at Banks and take-out at the Cascade Raft River Center. Grab a paddle and dive into the fun as you encounter excitement around every bend. After a few miles of this relatively calm stretch of river, you'll feel like a an old pro. Try the newest whitewater thrill this summer, Hydrospeeding, on the Payette River! Hydrospeed has been called the "skeleton of whitewater" for its similarities to the ice-sliding sport, most notably the position on the board, and the turbo-charged adventure level. Participants are outfitted with a wetsuit, life jacket, helmet and fins to float the Main Payette on a plastic river board. After a brief orientation and safety information, our trained and licensed guides will lead the way down the exciting class II and III rapids where you will meet the waves face to face. If you are looking for the ultimate whitewater adventure, charge downstream headfirst with Hydrospeed!

Towering canyon walls channel the clear blue water as it plummets through one of the West's most magnificent river corridors. The combination of steep drops and awesome scenery makes this the crown jewel of continuous Class IV rapids.

"We had a wonderful time! I would recommend this trip to everyone and am eager to come back and dod it again. Our guides were Micah & Luke and I'd like to say they were extremely entertaining. They have a wonderful sense of humor and work extremely well together. Their personalities blend together beautifully and it's almost as if their banter is scripted. Please pass on to them that they made our trip very unique and emmensely enjoyable. Thanks, Thea"
