Before the trip:
Please check in upon arrival. Come early and enjoy a sandwich at the "Class V Deli". At your scheduled time, the preparation for your trip begins. You will receive your rafting gear (wetsuits, paddles, life jackets etc.), get introduced to your rafting guide and receive a briefing on safety and rafting techniques.
After the trip:
We provide transportation back to your vehicle at our original launch site. This is where you will return all your rafting gear. Then it's off to the retail center to see your smiling and sometimes shocking faces on the big screen as we view the days rafting photos.
What to bring:
"Zoller's provides all on river clothing (including shoes) except your base layer of swim suits or shorts. During our winter trips, most guests also bring a base layer of poly-pro type long johns. In any weather bringing a dry change of undies and a towel is not a bad idea also.

Whitewater Rafting Fun Fact #1
Washington State has arguably the best whitewater rafting and kayaking day trip opportunities in the U.S. The reason for this is the Cascade Mountains running north/south the entire length of the state. The Cascades gather copious amounts of moisture Fall through Spring, stores it up as snow-pack and in turn that moisture creates a multitude of whitewater rafting rivers flowing both east and west through the state. While a very limited number of these whitewater rafting rivers are conducive to commercial rafting, there are still enough great rafting spots to keep a person in whitewater all summer long throughout the state.
