Itinerary for Spokane River Floats
Although each of FLOW's Spokane River Trips is unique to the group, they all tend to follow a similar path. We will meet you at whichever put-in point along the river we are using that day, and provide a ride back to the put-in (typically the Water St. access in Peaceful Valley) from the take-out on the FLOW Adventures bus. Upon your arrival you will be greeted by a FLOW guide. Before getting on the river, we will outfit you with everything you need, and brief you on what to expect and standard river protocol.
Following the pre-float briefing, we are ready to get on the river! We use a combination of rafts and inflatable kayaks, depending on the group's interests. It usually takes a short time for people to get used to maneuvering their inflatable kayaks, but this is all part of the fun. To add to the excitement, we will provide water toys for squirting fellow rafters.
Depending on river levels and access (during late summer we cannot boat past TJ Meenach Bridge because of shallow rapids), we will travel through rapids up to either class II or III. In between rapids, the river is more calm allowing for water fights, swimming alongside the boats, or simply relaxing and enjoying the view of Spokane from a new vantage point: the river.
The float typically takes 1.5-3 hours from start to finish. It provides us with a great opportunity to see the city of Spokane from an angle that many never see. As an option, we offer trips that include lunch or dinner (depending on the time of day).
Upon reaching the end of the trip, the boats are pulled up on shore and your cars are already there waiting for you. This gives everyone a great opportunity to relive the excitement, share stories, and snap a few final pictures. If you have any questions about the trips, don't hesitate to contact us.
