Salmon River Professional Guides


We are blessed to have a staff that well-traveled adventure guests from around the world have labeled "the best guides they have ever had". Part of this sentiment may stem from each guide's amazing ability to captain rafts down wild rivers. Other feelings may come from the gourmet meals that they create with fresh ingredients, but limited tools.

But our guess, and one that is supported by comments from the thousands of guests with whom these guides have shared wilderness trips, is that their absolute kindness and consideration is what sets them apart. We invite you to come see for yourself.

Testimony Five Star Review

"Thanks for giving my family a vacation to remember. I must admit I was skeptical about the trip at first- given all my trips into the wilderness. This trip met and exceeded all my expectations. Your professionalism, creativity and leadership were a joy to watch. I am so happy that my family had a chance to see what a real outfitter acts like and what a pleasant experience it can be when things are done right. Thanks too for taking such good care of my family."
