Half Day – 13 Mile (Afternoon)
Looking for a half day adventure for your friends or family? Whitewater rafting on the Deschutes River is ideal for families, outdoor enthusiasts and beginners! For those who want a good taste of the river in a short amount of time, our 13 mile run has all of the big name rapids. Choose your start time (morning or afternoon) and meet us right at the Lodge in Maupin where we will get geared up to go to the put in. We will shuttle you to Harpham Flat and splash through Wapinitia, Devil’s Hole and Boxcar before floating through Maupin. Continuing downriver, you will run rapids including Powerline, Surf City, Oak Springs, White River and the Elevators. We will pick you up at Sandy Beach and shuttle you back to the Lodge.
Interested in lunch? Although lunch is not included in this trip, you can add it! Before your afternoon launch, arrive early and have time to enjoy some good food. The BBQ raft lunch (advance reservations required) or Bakeoven Bar & Grill in the Lodge, are both great options!
(Trying to decide between a Half-Day and an All-Day? Do the All-Day! It is THE best trip on the Lower Deschutes and we are the only one to offer it. Plus, it is the guides’ favorite trip, and they know the river better than anyone!)
