Floating the Yakima River Canyon for Fun or Fly Fishing!

"We make rafting the Yakima River Canyon safe and easy!" 

Our riverside location is in the heart of the scenic Yakima Canyon. This makes renting rafts from Red's an easy choice. 



It is a simple process for your group, big or small, to rent rafts from our company and have a safe "Do It Yourself" adventure!  Our staff will provide all the necessary transportation for the entire group to and from the launch or takeout.


How Long Do We Float?

Float Times:  Our guests either launch or takeout at Red's Fly Shop/Canyon River Ranch.  We will arrange for you to enjoy a 7 mile float which can range from 2-4 hours depending on river flows and how much you decide to stop along the way.

These will be scheduled as a "morning" (roughly 9 am) or "afternoon" float (roughly 2 pm).  The morning float is quiet and better for viewing wildlife with much less traffic on the river.  The afternoon float is better for social groups that don't mind seeing a few other floaters and are more concerned about getting a tan than seeing some deer!

We sell the basic rafting essentials.  Sunscreen, sunglasses, ice, shorts, sandals, dry bags, and a few other items.  Be sure that you bring your own cooler.

We provide lifejackets and paddles for all of our raft rentals.  All children under 12 are required by law to wear lifejackets, and we encourage everyone in the group to wear lifejackets.  Red's encourages parents to provide their own lifejackets for kids to ensure a perfect fit.
