Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

We suggest that you wear comfortable, quick-drying clothing, soft-soled shoes or river sandals (not flip-flops), a hat, sunglasses with a leash and sunscreen. During cool weather cotton or other natural fibers will get wet and make you cold, man made fibers dry more quickly and will keep you warm.


What can I bring?

For full or half day whitewater rafting trips you can bring small personal items, a waterproof, disposable camera and dry clothing for after the trip. We do not allow alcohol on the boats for day trips.  We will provide dry bag storage on each trip. For a more detailed packing list, especially for our multi-day whitewater rafting trips on the Salmon River please see our Packing List page.


Where do we meet to start our trip?

We meet our guests at our store in the historic Riggins School located at 121 North Main Street in Riggins. We are directly north of the city basketball courts.  To see a map with the meeting spot PLEASE CLICK HERE


What are the age/size restrictions?

We enjoy taking guests of all ages and abilities. It is important that our equipment accomodate each guest, and we ask that you contact us with any concerns you might have. We do not take children younger than 6-years of age without talking to the parents or guardian prior to the reservation. If our personal floatation devices do not fit properly, we cannot guarantee your safety and will not be able to take you on the trip.


Who is running Our trips?

Salmon River Challenge and Orange Torpedo Trips have come together.  This partnership combines over 50 years of experience from both companies providing incredible river experiences.
