Reasonably Priced Salmon River Fun Day Float Trips

Our float trips on the Upper Salmon River have much the same benefits as the middle fork without spending a king's ransom and our day trips go so much faster.  We get you to the launch site in an hour, you spend the next 2 to 3 hours going through the rapids, we pull over for lunch, which takes about another hour. Then, back into the water for short float to the take out site. Your day with us will start about 9:00 AM, and you'll be back to your car or lodging by around 5:00 PM, guaranteed.

Upper Salmon River Stream Flows still good

Stream flows on the upper Salmon River between Spring Creek launch site and the Cove Creek take out are still very good! So, if you're looking to have a fun day on the river, call Kookaburra Rafting and make your reservation today! We'll treat you to grilled steak or chicken luncheon, your choice with desert and beverage. Served at the mouth of Panther Creek, at Grant Duncan's beautiful park like setting. Call us today!

Cool off in the Salmon River

These hot. dry summer days are the perfect time to float the upper Salmon River. Kookaburra Rafting will take you through the rapids and guarantee you'll get wet enough to cool down. And if per chance that doesn't do it, your guide  will let you get in the river and float down always. Come float with us, the river is still good for a fast trip through whitewater polished off with a tasty lunch.

Hang ten

 Hang ten, an expression surfers use, I believe. I'm not even sure what the expression means, but if it's floating through space for a period of time, then we can offer you a similar sensation right here on Idaho's upper Salmon River. But you gotta hurry. The current stream flows won't last forever. So, make your reservation today!

 

Adrenaline Junkies

Let the good times and the adrenaline flow! Think about getting on the river while it's fast and wild. The weather on the upper Salmon is cool, the river high, perfect for an exciting raft trip. You will likely need a wet suit, and we'll find you one. Right now, due to spring rains, the air is pure and scented by Syringa, our official state shrub. We encourage you to raft with us and experience the beautiful emerald green mountain scenery.

Fast River Trip

If you don't have a lot of time to devote to a raft trip on the Salmon River, check with us. We did two complete floats through the whitewater section of the upper Salmon River in 2 1/2 hours. The time included loading the raft on the trailer and backtracking to the launch site. This is the perfect float trip, If you only have a few hours to spare. Give us a call, and book it!

Upper Salmon River Rafting at it's Best

Book your Upper Salmon River float trip as soon as you can. Keep in mind that this year, due to climate conditions, high water will not last very long. My suggestion for the die hard whitewater enthusiast is to take your float trip in the month of June. That is not to say there won't be good rafting later in the summer, but if you like big waves and like to raft at a fast clip, plan to go now.
