Rafting in the Yakima Canyon
How Long Do We Float?
Red's highly reccomends downloading the BASEMAP App for your smartphone before floating any rivers.
Guests renting a standard length DIY Self Guided Paddle Raft will 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 much 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! Guests enjoying a Full Day DIY Paddle Raft Rental must be finished with their float by no later than 5 pm.
What Do We Need to Bring?
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 life-jackets and paddles for guests on all of our river raft rentals. On our Guided Scenic River Floats we will provide a large cooler full of ice. All children under 12 are required by law to wear life-jackets, and we encourage everyone in the group to wear life-jackets. Red's encourages parents to provide their own life-jackets for kids to ensure a perfect fit.
